Celebrating 50 years of Roald Dahl’s groundbreaking Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Penguin UK would like to share a new edition with you. Publishing for the first time as a Penguin Modern Classic, this design is in recognition of the book’s extraordinary cultural impact and is one of the few children’s books to be featured in the Penguin Modern Classics list.

This new image for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory looks at the children at the centre of the story, and highlights the way Roald Dahl’s writing manages to embrace both the light and the dark aspects of life, ready for Charlie’s debut amongst the adult titles in the Penguin Modern Classics series.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has inspired generations of children and adults alike and it is only fitting that its 50th anniversary year sees this phenomenally successful tale join Penguin Modern Classics’ list of the most exciting, groundbreaking and inspiring works of the last 100 years, at the same time as Puffin Books’ celebratory golden edition introduces Mr Wonka, Charlie Bucket and his winning Golden Ticket to a new generation of Roald Dahl fans.

Both the Penguin Modern Classics and Puffin celebratory edition will be available from September.
