For decades, delighted readers of all ages have explored Willy Wonka's fabulous chocolate factory, met the Oompa Loompas, and sampled the chocolate river along with Augustus Gloop. And later, they have zoomed off into the stratosphere in the most remarkable elevator ever created. Now, a new generation of readers barely needs to pause between the first and the second of Roald Dahl's masterful volumes. Hardcover editions of each title, illustrated of course by the incomparable Quentin Blake, are tucked in a handy cardboard sleeve, ready for the next set of hungry eyes. Sadly, the convenience of the set is counterbalanced by the poor quality of the paper used for the books. Classics like these deserve thick, creamy, opaque pages; not the flimsy, rough, semitransparent sheets used here. (Ages 7 and older) --Emilie Coulter
I bought this for my granddaughter for Christmas. she is 8 and loves to read.
I felt the need to read the books because I had seen the movies (both versions) but I'd always wondered what I'd missed from the source.
If I didn't already own these books myself, I would've bought a set for myself as well.

Wow!!! Arrived earlier than expected. Was a little concerned about quality of item. But was dead on brand new with shrink wrap still on. Beautiful box set.Published 11 months ago by Longhorns
I challenged my grandson to read these books and compare them to the movies based on them. He is "required" to let me know what he thinks of the differences.Published 12 months ago by Barb Hauck

This product was purchased for my niece's seventh birthday present. She has a passion for reading and these books are something that both parents and child can bond over. Thanks.Published on March 24, 2013 by lw
I remember reading this when I was growing up with my Mom. We recently picked up the 70s version of the movie elsewhere, and I figured we'd get the books for bedtime reading. Read morePublished on February 5, 2013 by shopperwhale
