THE COMPLETE ADEVENTURES OF CHARLIE

LOVE IT!!! MY SON READ THIS BOOK OVER & OVER AGAIN.

Wonderful Adventures of an Obedient Child

Mr. Dahl recognized exactly how to keep children amused. There are thirty chapters in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"; each chapter is short and ends with a suspenseful line or paragraph. There are twenty chapters in "Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator"; although the chapters are long but the ending of each chapter is still able to evoke a child's curiosity thus suggesting to them to continue reading. Although "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" is more well-known especially with two movies out (so far) based on the story (of course the storybook is much better although the efforts of adapting the story onto screen for both versions were pretty amazing), I prefer "Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator" because it is sillier; the adults are portrayed to act eccentrically juvenile. The number of made-up words are many more and the jokes surrounding the words are out-loud laughable. Also, the relayed messages or the lessons learned have deeper and truer meanings. Although the titles for both seem to indicate that Charlie is the main character, in actual fact, the major role is played by Mr. Wonka. But, since these stories were written for children as the key audience, the adventure of another child would grasp the interest of a kid better. Mr. Dahl was a genius! If "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" is a children's fantasy, "Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator" is more or less a children's science fiction, and both are delightful.

Complete Adventures of Charlie and Willy

It was a good book. Like all of Roald Dahl books of course! After having read Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, this is a must read for fans!
