Information


Description

Charlie and Mr. Willy Wonka, the unforgettable heroes of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," return for a second magical adventure. We last glimpsed them inside the Glass Elevator, soaring through the Chocolate Factory. Now, as in all the best sequels, the action moves into a new orbit (quite literally!) as the Great Glass Elevator zooms into Space with Mr. Wonka, Charlie and the entire Bucket family inside. A crazy adventure ensues in which our travellers encounter Vermicious Knids, the President of the United States and some miracle reverse-ageing pills. [from roalddahl.com]
