You can obviously tell it is written by R.D. because of the style and vocabulary. I advise reading willy wonka and the choclate factory first.

This takes up where Charlie and The Chocolate Factory ended. A real assortment of out-of-this-world, and Dahl weird adventures. Lots of fun.

Charlie's back!--in the further adventures of the Bucket brigade and Mr. Willy Wonka, chocolate-maker extraordinaire.

Charlie Bucket, last seen flying a giant elevator through the skies in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, is still flying. Only now he and Mr. Wonka have picked up Charlie's parents and grandparents, and the elevator has picked up speed. They're through the roof again, and launched on a fantastic journey to outer space! Visiting the world's first space hotel, battling the dreaded Vermicious Knids, making the President of the United States very nervous, and saving the world--and it's only the beginning of this remarkable, cliff-hanging adventure.

gotta say I read this as a samll child and again as an adult, it just isn't as good as charlie and the chocolate factory, but still worth the time to take to read it.

I find many people don't know that Charlie's adventures keep going ... I love the Vermicious Knids they encounter. As an alien encounter, the Vermicious Knids are quite, er, unique.

This was a great read aloud. In fact it was after this book that my youngest son picked up another of Dahl's books and fell in love with reading.

I read this book immediately after reading "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," which I quite enjoyed. This book picks up right where the previous one left off, but goes in an entirely different direction. It wasn't nearly as much fun as the first book and I had to actually force myself to finish reading it. Probably children would like it, but this one is nowhere near the caliber of the first book.

From what I recall, somewhat different in tone than the first Charlie book. Not the same sense of play.

Overview: Starting where "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" left off - in the Great Glass Elevator - this story takes Charlie, Mr. Wonka, Charlie's parents and grandparents on a most extraordinary journey. Thanks to Mr. Wonka dn a couple of buttons that did and did not get pushed, the Great Glass Elevator and all its passengers find themselves orbiting in space. A super American space hotel, ferocious battles with the dread Vermicious Knids, a nervous President, and a most unusual Vice President - these are only some of the people, places and things you will encounter on this marvelous, cliffhanging adventure.

Review: If you or your child have read "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", you'll definitely want to read "Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator". It takes the story further and answers the question, "What happened next?" the first Roald Dahl book left.

By the same author as "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". The further adventures of Charlie Bucket and Willy Wonka with a rollicking hilarity, incorporating a broad, wickedly fey satire of the United States space program and Washington bureaucracy that adults, too, will relish.
