Nightmarish New Cover for CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY

"It's got lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eyes. When it comes at you it doesn't seem to be livin'… until [s]he bites you, and those black eyes roll over white." - Jaws

This is the new cover for Roald Dahl's classic book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Penguin publishing created the new cover to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the novel, and it's kind of terrifying. This is part of Penguin's New Modern Classic series and they gave an explanation of the cover saying:

"This new image for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory looks at the children at the centre of the story, and highlights the way Roald Dahl's writing manages to embrace both the light and the dark aspects of life, ready for Charlie's debut amongst the adult titles in the Penguin Modern Classics series."

Those points definitely come across in the most nightmarish ways. Thanks to io9 for the tip.
