Additional Notes

From The Publisher*From the bestselling author of Matilda and The BFG!

Last seen flying through the sky in a giant elevator in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Charlie Bucket's back for another adventure. When the giant elevator picks up speed, Charlie, Willy Wonka, and the gang are sent hurtling through space and time. Visiting the world'' first space hotel, battling the dreaded Vermicious Knids, and saving the world are only a few stops along this remarkable, intergalactic joyride.
From The Publisher*

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-aging pills.
