books: Pure Imagin–OMG…!

Well… I’m pretty terrified, how about you? To celebrate 50 years of Roald Dahl’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, it’s being published as a Penguin Modern Classic. But the cover design is something like “The Stepford Wives” meets “Toddlers & Tiaras”.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Penguin Modern Classics cover

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.

I don’t see any light aspects in that cover, but ok. I love the story, but I don’t think this particular edition is going to grace my bookshelves.
