4.0 out of 5 stars Okay Sequel, Featuring Space Aliens and Youth Potions
I've just read this out loud to my six-year-old daughter, and though it's not as good as "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", she enjoyed it and laughed at the jokes.

The story's in two parts. The first half deals with the Glass Elevator shooting off the Earth into space, and Mr Wonka saving a new American space hotel from being attacked by man-eating aliens...

3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing sequel
The number of positive reviews (4 or 5 stars) that have previously been posted for this book really surprises me. Charlie And The Chocolate Factory is a true children's classic which weaves a fantastic and magical tale, adding in a few lessons along the way, that so many children love. In contrast, this book tends towards bland, disjointed, drawn out and unremarkable...

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Dahl's masterpieces, 12 Feb. 2008
Plot: Willy Wonka is an extraordinary chocolate making genius. He may be good at making candy but his flying skills are terrible; Charlie's family and he do not trust Mr. Wonka one bit when it comes to that particular subject. But when the travellers are lost up in space he only thing they need is a miracle...

Something special about the author: In the story all the travellers were invited to the White House and Roald Dahl was also invited to the President's house when Eleanor Roosevelt absolutely loved Dahl's book The Gremlins!

Rating and Recommendation: I would rate this book 7/ 10 because it was witty but a bit (only a tiny, weeny bit) boring and the plot was not as good as all the others. I would recommend it to Roald Dahl's fan, especially 7 - 11 year olds.
