One of the most ambitious and innovative projects that Audrey Press has ever created recently celebrated its 6th birthday. How time flies!
Six years ago, like proud parents, co-authors Valarie Budayr and Roscoe Welply welcomed readers to jump into the pages of The Ultimate Guide To Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. This creation of an interactive book that opened the reader\’s mind to the joy of creating a place of magic and wonder for children, right within the cover of a book is only one of this successful duos’ string of award-winning books.
The Ultimate Guide To Charlie and The Chocolate Factory introduces readers to the concept of Book Jumping: the ability to pull books off the shelf and make the pages come alive. Through voice and inflection, cooking, crafts, inventive games, and vivid tutorials, experiencing the magic of “Charlie” allows readers of all ages to enter the enchanted world of Willy Wonka and experience his world of possibilities.
The Ultimate Guide To Charlie And The Chocolate Factory is just that: a Guide. A step-by-step roadmap to a magical world the whole family can enjoy and takes reading from a solitary or one-on-one process to something that families, classrooms, sleepovers and church groups, can experience together. Ever wonder how you “grow” chocolate? What makes a Gobstopper hard?
Charlie was created as a way to shift book reading from a solitary act to one that invites families, classrooms, sleepovers, and church groups into a new world. Together, groups can travel Mr. Wonka\’s mazes, hallways, and marvel at the chocolate rivers.
The Golden Tickets have been found!! Readers are the lucky ticket finders who will be able to visit the infamous Mr. Wonka\’s Chocolate Factory for one day. Over 20 activities and crafts make Willy Wonka\’s world come alive with Crazy Racing Oompa-Loompas, Gobstopper Gum, and handmade Willy Wonka hats. This interactive book creates collaborative play and invites readers to live inside the pages of this timeless tale.
The amazing graphic designs will take your breath away, the 20+ projects will delight your kids, and readers will finally be able to say “Hey, I went Book Jumping this weekend….” Come along on a journey into one of the most beloved children\’s books of all time.
“Stories re-awaken for us the passionate idea of living inside the pages of a book. Each story is a gateway into a magical world contained inside its cover.”-Valarie Budayr
