This book is one of Roald Dahl's finest. It is a delightful masterpiece and a book to read again. "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" is a well-loved children's book, and for good reason. It is a classic among kids's books, and I highly recommend it!

My 4yo son and 6yo daughter couldn't wait to go to bed so that we could read more Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Made bedtime fast, easy and fun. GREAT story! (Now to TRY and find another just as good!)

“Everything in this room is eatable. Even I'm eatable! But that is called cannibalism, my dear children, and which is frowned upon in most society.”

“Mr Willy Wonka can make marshmallows that taste of violets, and rich caramels that change colour every ten seconds as you suck them, and little feathery sweets that melt away deliciously the moment you put them between your lips. He can make chewing-gum that never loses its taste, and sugar balloons that you can blow up to enormous sizes before you pop them with a pin and gobble them up. And, by a most secret method, he can make lovely blue birds' eggs with black spots on them, and when you put one of these in your mouth, it gradually gets smaller and smaller until suddenly there is nothing left except a tiny little DARKRED sugary baby bird sitting on the tip of your tongue.”

“Of course they're real people. They're Oompa-Loompas...Imported direct from Loompaland...And oh what a terrible country it is! Nothing but thick jungles infested by the most dangerous beasts in the world - hornswogglers and snozzwangers and those terrible wicked whangdoodles. A whangdoodle would eat ten Oompa-Loompas for breakfast and come galloping back for a second helping.”

The story centers around an average and poor boy named Charlie Bucket, who lives in extreme poverty with his extended family, and his adventures inside the chocolate factory of Willy Wonka. Years prior to the beginning of the story, Willy Wonka opened the largest chocolate factory in the world, but spies stole his recipes, so he eventually closed the factory to the public. Then the factory began to run again while still closed to the public with the aid of 'mystery workers' and it had been running that way for the past ten years. Then one day Mr. Wonka decided to allow five children to visit the factory. Each child will win a lifetime supply of chocolate after the factory tour. The children have to find one of the five golden tickets hidden inside the wrapping paper of random Wonka bars. The hunt for the tickets turns into a world-wide mania, with each ticket find a media sensation and its finder an instant celebrity. Augustus Gloop (a boy who eats constantly), Veruca Salt (a girl who is spoiled), Violet Beauregarde (a girl who chews gum all day), Mike Teavee (a boy who is addicted to television), and Charlie Bucket win the tickets and visit the factory.
