Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator

It has been a long while since I read his other books but this one is as genius as I remember the other ones to be. The part in the president office is hilarious. I was struck by the sad tone as Willy Wonka walked away from the quabbles of Charlie’s family when they fight over the Wonka-vite. It felt a little out of place, but gave the story a deeper level. Don’t go too fast reading this or you will miss out some of the jokes!
