Book: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Posted by: John Martz
I’m away from home so much this month, it’s another quickie from me this time. But, it’s one that allows me to introduce my next series of illustrations.
Having exhausted all I wanted to do with The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, I’m moving on to another favourite childhood book: Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
So here is its bookplate.
And Grandpa Joe said, “You mean to say I’ve never told you about Mr. Willy Wonka and his factory?”
“Never,” answered little Charlie.
“Good heavens above! I don’t know what’s the matter with me!”
It’s not much, but hopefully it whets your appetite for when I dive head-first into the book.
