      With his venom, Harlan has driven away his long-suffering yet irascible mail-order bride.

They have big goals, big emotions and big problems, and all those things are best expressed through singing and dancing — that kind of more colourful and larger palette.

But that regret cannot save his life as his truck careens off a bridge and into a murky river. Editorial Reviews Wieland's lovely first novel Willy Slaters Lane book likely to entrance readers with the sheer quixotic wonder of his telling of quenched lives.

After he leaves, Charlie discovers a single dollar left behind under the cash register. Wonka leads them into the TV room, much to Mike's delight. His home is a one-room shack under a railway arch. Wonka demonstrates Chocolate Television. Passengers encounter all the characters from the book going from Augustus Gloop to Veruca Salt either as simple animatronics or CGI projections.

Bucket is disappointed to learn that Charlie must be accompanied by an adult in order to go on the tour, as she is sure to lose her job if she asks for a day off of work.

Wonka demonstrates Chocolate Television, which uses a machine to send chocolate bars to TV screens. They continue into the Mixing Room, where an enormous mixing cup mashes random ingredients together to make new flavors and inventions, from furry lollypops to a glowing orb made from bananas and uranium Charlie dubs "Liquid Sunshine.

Mike is intrigued and despite Wonka's protests, he puts himself before the cameras, presses the remote and disappears in a puff of smoke. Each year's entries are judged by expert panels of youth educators, students, librarians, booksellers, and book reviewers of all ages.

Meanwhile, as the industrious Amish pass in their buggies down Willy Slater's Lane, the road that runs past the farm, the house which Harlan refuses to repair slowly begins to collapse, and Erban and Elizabeth have to increasingly rely on the charity of neighbors even for food.

Wrong document context!

Once the living room gave way, with no television, Erban found himself alone earlier than usual as Harland and Elizabeth went to bed after dinner.

Suddenly, a grocery-store epiphany reveals to her that in her fight to survive as an individual, she is becoming just like him. A modest mixture of Sherwood Anderson and Erskine Caldwell, with some perfectly observed characters in a Willy Slaters Lane book that is winningly sweet without being sentimental.
