This book is the sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which was originally banned because the depiction of the oompa loompas was seen as Politically Incorrect. Roald Dahl addressed the concern and changed the description of the oompa loompas in revised versions. The book received further crticism from a Colorado librarian who believed the book “espoused a poor philosophy of life” and said Charlie “had no tremendously positive traits, only an absence of negative ones.” if you are a collector of banned books, this is a series you will want on your library Shelf.
