    With its refreshed look to celebrate the Roald Dahl 100 celebrations, this special edition of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is perfect for introducing children to the wonderful and weird world of Roald Dahl.

    With Quentin Blake's illustrations, this is the story of a boy from a poor family who wins a golden ticket to visit the elusive Willy Wonka's secretive chocolate factory.

    When Charlie Bucket arrives at the tour - hosted by none other than Willy Wonka, the owner of the factory - he finds himself surrounded by nasty, spoilt brats. There's the greedy Augustus Gloop; arrogant Veruca Salt; repulsive Violet Beaurgarde; and TV-obsessed Mike Teavee.

    But when the tour starts, what mysterious secrets will the group discover? Everything from oompa-loompas to a glass elevator await... this is a classic children's story from the world's No. 1 storyteller.
