Toffee trees and chocolate rivers. Magic is on the menu in Roald Dahl’s tastiest book! Charlie Bucket loves chocolate. Who doesn’t? Trouble is, his family are so poor that all they can afford to eat is cabbage soup. Yuck. But one day Charlie wins a golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory: a vast paradise of lip-smacking flavours and weirdly wonderful inventions. Here, amid the cocoa forests and bubbling vats of sweeties, an astonishing surprise is waiting for Charlie…

    Charlie and the chocolate factory is a very old book by Roald Dahl. I love how all the sweet treats are described in the book like so detailed.

    I love this book because i think it tells people that are feeling down that there is always a bright side to a bad thing. My favourite part in this book is where he finds the golden ticket in the chocolate bar. How he finds it is when he is walking home he finds a 5 dollar note on the ground he picks it up and runs to the sweet shop. he buys three chocolate bar and stuffs two of them down. When he opens the third one he sees something gold. He tears the rest of it open and finds a GOLDEN TICKET. He runs home as fast as he could and told his family all about finding the money on the ground. Can you believe his luck? He wants his grandpa to go with him but then realised that grandpa has not walked for over twenty years! He is very sad. But then grandpa jumps out of bed and off they go. that is why that is my favourite part of the story.
