Here’s another bit of news from the UK Guardian: It’s published a chapter of the iconic children’s tale, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, that was cut from the original manuscript back in 1964. The section was considered “too wild, subversive and insufficiently moral for the tender minds of British children almost 50 years ago.”
“Charlie Bucket – accompanied by his mother, not his sprightly grandfather – and the other children are led into the Vanilla Fudge Room, where they face the sinister prospect of the Pounding and Cutting Room.” You can find it on the Guardian’s website.
The library has a copy of Raold Dahl’s Charlie et la chocolaterie, as well as the sequel, Charlie et le grand ascenseur de verre.
