Amazon.com Review

Picking right up where Charlie and the Chocolate Factory left off, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator continues the adventures of Charlie Bucket, his family, and Willy Wonka, the eccentric candy maker. As the book begins, our heroes are shooting into the sky in a glass elevator, headed for destinations unknown. What follows is exactly the kind of high-spirited magical madness and mayhem we've all come to expect from Willy Wonka and his creator Roald Dahl. The American space race gets a send-up, as does the President, and Charlie's family gets a second chance at childhood. Throw in the Vermicious Knids, Gnoolies, and Minusland and we once again witness pure genius. (Ages 9 to 12) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From AudioFile

Dahl's wit and freewheeling sense of fun and nonsense survive intact in this sequel to the perennially favorite CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. Eric Idle, of Monty Python fame, plunges headlong into this story of space travel, aliens, and magic, courtesy of Wonka and his factory. Dahl's trenchant humor takes flight with Idle's hilarious versions of crabby old folks, a fatheaded President, idealistic children, and the wizardly Wonka. You'll recognize shades of Python in this circus for the ears--an audiobook deserving of a place next to such classics as THE WIZARD OF OZ, THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA, and ALICE IN WONDERLAND. It takes a gifted actor and comedian to push such great youth fiction beyond its already grand scale. If you've somehow missed Dahl or Idle, treat yourself and the kids to this funhouse of wisdom, humor, and absurdity. D.J.B.
