Book Cover Throwback: Charlie & the Chocolate Factory

This week’s Book Cover Throwback: Charlie & the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

Book Cover Throwbacy: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

What I Love about This Cover:  It’s cartoon-ey and fun, much like the book at a surface level read.

What I Don’t Love about This Cover: There are themes and motifs in this book that are not light and bright. I wish the cover would show a little hint at the darkness that dwells beneath the surface.

About the author

Raven Oak

Bestselling science fiction & fantasy author Raven Oak is best known for Amaskan’s Blood, Class-M Exile, and the collection Joy to the Worlds: Mysterious Speculative Fiction for the Holidays.

She spent most of her K-12 education doodling stories and 500 page monstrosities that are forever locked away in a filing cabinet. When she's not writing, she's getting her game on, enjoying cartography, or staring at the ocean.

She lives in Seattle, WA with her husband, and their three kitties who enjoy lounging across the keyboard when writing deadlines approach.
