Book: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Artist: Caleb Palmer
Artist’s Statement: Roald Dahl, in my opinion, is one of the greatest children’s authors of all time. I loved reading his books, and letting my imagination run wild. One of his most famous books, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was always one of my favorites. The work shows Willy Wonka at the top of the page, offset with Charlie Bucket on the bottom. These are the two central characters in the story. The scene in the middle depicts the boat that all the lucky members got to ride on, traveling down the majestic chocolate river with the chocolate waterfall behind it.
