This is one fantastical, whissplescrumptuous book! Pop-up books are hugely popular this Christmas, and setting the standard is this masterpiece.
Re-telling the wonderful Roald Dahl story through word and Quentin Blake’s illustrations is magical enough, but adding the element of pop up creates something quite spectacular. This really is a beautiful book. At work I’ve got the pop-up pages opened up and displayed for all to see. My favourite pop-up is a snowy scene in which everyone arrives with their family at the gated of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. It’s the closest I will ever get to the factory.
A beautiful gift-book and you know…Christmas is coming! The best bit? The cover…it’s like unwrapping a giant chocolate bar.
