Penguin UK has redesigned the cover of Roald Dahl’s Charlie & the Chocolate Factory to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the book.
Here is more about the redesign from the publisher’s blog: “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.”
Some people responded negatively to the new cover on Twitter.
