New Editions of ‘Charlie & The Chocolate Factory’ to Be Released as a Penguin Modern Classic in The UK

Penguin executives made this decision to honor the 50th anniversary of the book’s original publication date. A new cover has been designed and a release date has been set for September 2014. (The Penguin UK Books Blog)
