5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun for under 5s 6 Mar 2012
My daughter absolutely loves this book. A simplified and shortened version of the original but still has plenty of charm and humour of the full version. She loves the pop-out pages. Been read numerous times at bedtime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 16 Oct 2011
Bought this book to read to my 5 and 8 year olds at bedtime as we have read alot of Roald Dahls other books. I got this version as my 8 year old is Autistic and he's very visual so i thought this would be a good idea for him, both my sons love it, they we're both ooooing and ahhhing all the way through at the pop up section. The only thing i would say is that its not a good book for kids to read alone if their young or easily destroy things as some of the pop ups are very big and easily destroyed. Overall we love this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book 4 May 2012
By Harvi
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic book. I bought this book on the basis of the author Quentin Blake who I find to be really lively. Its a great book my 5 year old loves it. only thing is you have to very careful and handle it gently. I would not leave this lying around as could just imagine the kids destroying it. I would def recommend this, I also think it would make a nice present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - 6 year old loves it 28 Dec 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great quality pop-ups and a lovely shiny gold-ticket.
If your kids love Charlie and the chocolate factory and pop-up books then its a no-brainer.
Not quite as elaborate as many other pop-up books my kids have but still very good indeed and worth getting.
There are little tabs to pull and things to slide around, and at the price I bought this for on Amazon (about 8), a great deal!

I like the stories of Roald Dahl very much. And I like Quentin Blake, too. This Pop-up book is brilliant. Every page is made with love, children will love it and big children (like me) as well.

Pop-ups of nursery rhymes and fairy tales are probably more commonplace than pop-up adaptations of meaty books like Roald Dahl stories. So it is a treat to savour and own this pop-up book of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This first pop-up adaptation of this Dahl story is a right good scrumdidilyumptious feast for Dahl fans. It is so well put together with its simple yet effective devices of pop-ups, pull-outs and lift-the-flaps and immerses the reader in the story.

Every spread is a delight, from Charlie's first entrance to the Great Glass Lift at the end of the story. I especially the pull-out tabs that send the nasty children to their fates and offer us the Oompa-Loompa songs. I also like the Chocolate Room door that reveals the room when you lift the flaps. The story continues on the other side of the door. This is, I think, an immersive highlight that captivates the reader. Most importantly, I like how the chocolate factory and its iron gates pop up in the second spreads and even when the children meet Mr Wonka. It is a felicitous delight to have the paper engineers remind us that this is Charlie's story after all in the first two spreads. He waves his hands in the first spread when he meets and greets the reader, and he is shown in a still drawing on the next spread in relation to the chocolate factory.

The pop-ups are complemented by an abridged text of the original story. This is like a caveat emptor to buyers who want to purchase this book, but I think they might know that already. However, in a way, an abridged text is good. In its published form, the story tends to meander along with peripheral episodes. The abridged text in this pop-up book is good in omitting the peripheral episodes, but at times the reader notices that there are joins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knock-out pop-up for fans 29 Jan 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My girls (7 and 5) loved the story so much (in original format) that the younger one asked for a pop-up version. Couldn't believe my luck to find that one existed. And it is excellent. Nice to be able to re-read the story in a shorter form (and I'm asked to do so frequently). Sometimes spectacular cardboard mechanics. Daughter so proud of it that she took it into school for show-and-tell!
