Who is Miranda Piker?

If you’re a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory fan like me, you know all about the humble Charlie Bucket, the overindulgent Augustus Gloop, the spoiled brat Veruca Salt, gum-chewing Violet Beauregarde, and TV-aholic Mike Teavee. 

But have you ever heard of Miranda Piker?  She’s the ticket holder who never made it to the final revision of the story.  Actually, there were 10 tickets, but half were cut from the final version.

To find out more about this mysterious Miranda Piker, grab a copy of The Missing Golden Ticket and other Splendiferous Secretsreleased just a couple of days ago.

Most kids these days are already familiar with the Johnny Depp movie version of the book, so pulling out this top-secret chapter would be a great way to celebrate Roald Dahl and motivate kids to read more of his wonderful stories.

I can’t think of a better way to motivate kids to read than stories written by the world’s greatest storyteller!
