Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was written in 1964 - but the story is just enjoyed and loved by children now as it was then.

The story's hero is Charlie Bucket, a young boy from a very poor family. He lives with his parents and four grandparents in a tiny, old house. His luck changes when he wins a Golden Ticket to a tour of the local chocolate factory, owned by the mysterious Willy Wonka.

Four other children have also won tickets - and they are certainly characters! Charlie Bucket and his Grandpa Joe enjoy their tour with Augustus Gloop, a very greedy boy, Voilet Beauregarde, a very competitive child who chews gum all the time, Veruca Salt, a spoiled brat, and Mike Teavee, who is obsessed with watching television (TV - get it?!)

I'm not going to give away what happens but you can rest assured that all the children get the rewards they deserve, in true Roald Dahl style!
