I don’t remember the story being quite this stupid

It’s well performed, but the story just doesn’t have any of the magic or sweetness that the original Charlie and the chocolate factory had. After the first book you want to know about Charlie learning about the chocolate factory and instead he goes up into space and you spend the whole time getting to know his insanely dysfunctional Grandparents rather than having it be about him.

Storyline Is Terrible

The book narrator was amazing and was the main reason I bought the second Charlie and the Chocolate Factory book. I'm sad because the storyline was simply terrible. It didn't make sense and was all over the place. Very disappointed.

AWESOME narration!

The story is phenomenal and the way it is read (the voices, the accents etc.) kept my 5th grade students captivated and glued to the edge of their seats. This is by far THE BEST narration I've heard to date!

Second book

Afew funny poems and songs. In the end there's a reason what those people don't know about the second Charlie Potts book.
