      • bioText: Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.
        After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children's stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.
        Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

      • content: Narrator Douglas Hodge infuses this over-the-top sequel to CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY with a spectacular amount of energy and hilarious voices. Charlie's grandparents, with the exception of Grandpa Joe, haven't got out of bed in years, so they end up in the great glass elevator in outer space in their nightshirts being chased by Vermicious Knids (weird slimy critters). Their crankiness is rendered as gruffness and a tone of distrust. Meanwhile, the president of the United States, Lancelot R. Gilligrass, is wondering what is happening to his astronauts. Gilligrass is a twit, and Hodge maximizes the silly humor with growls and simpers. In addition, Willy Wonka's eternal optimism positively snaps with oomph. Listeners will feel as if they've had a dose of the anti-aging Wonka-Vite at the end of the whole crazy listening experience. A.B. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine

      • content: Dahl's wit and freewheeling sense of fun and nonsense survive intact in this sequel to the perennially favorite CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. Eric Idle, of Monty Python fame, plunges headlong into this story of space travel, aliens, and magic, courtesy of Wonka and his factory. Dahl's trenchant humor takes flight with Idle's hilarious versions of crabby old folks, a fatheaded President, idealistic children, and the wizardly Wonka. You'll recognize shades of Python in this circus for the ears--an audiobook deserving of a place next to such classics as THE WIZARD OF OZ, THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA, and ALICE IN WONDERLAND. It takes a gifted actor and comedian to push such great youth fiction beyond its already grand scale. If you've somehow missed Dahl or Idle, treat yourself and the kids to this funhouse of wisdom, humor, and absurdity. D.J.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine

        Gr 3-6-Charlie's adventures continue in Dahl's tongue-in-cheek, rambunctious sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Listeners will climb aboard a glass elevator with Charlie, his family, and Mr. Wonka and travel into outer space where they visit a space hotel, escape the Vermicious Knids, and save the world. It is hard to stop laughing at Dahl's clever puns and hilarious situations delivered by award-winning actor Douglas Hodge whose talent is reminscent of Jim Dale's extraordinary narration of the "Harry Potter" series. While his rapid pace takes getting used to, his timing and incredible range of voices bring this favorite childhood classic to life.-Terri Norstrom, Cary Area Library, IL
