Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Doodle

One of my favourite books and also favourite screen adaptations (the Gene Wilder version) is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, known to many as Willy Wonka.  The book was first published in 1964 (17 January for the US version + 23 November UK version) so in anticipation of Roald Dahl day tomorrow my almost daily doodle has a bit of a Dahl theme.
