This book is nightmare fuel at times. Yes, it's whimsy, but I don't know what I just read. ( )
  Nannus | Jan 17, 2022 |
A delightful story bound to enchant Willy Wonka fans.
  BLTSbraille | Sep 8, 2021 |
Entertaining, but the story in the first half is completely separate from the story in the second half, but there is a forced tying at the end. ( )

Not as good as the original but it’s nice to have at least one more adventure with Mr. Wonka and co. ( )
  Arkrayder | Mar 15, 2021 |
Even as much fun as "Chocolate Factory," quick, sharp humor; full of terribly grand puns and a better Willy Wonka than anyone has ever portrayed on film. And Vice-President Nanny Miss Tibbs. ( )
