Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Charlie LOVES chocolate, but his family are so poor that all they can afford to eat is cabbage soup… until he wins a golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, a place of undreamed-of flavours and unimaginable inventions. The chocolate factory is a marvellous place, but it also has secrets. Why does no one ever come out? Who are the Oompa-Loompas, the tiny, singing workers who make the sweets and chocolates? And what spectacular surprise has Mr Wonka got in store for Charlie? Roald Dahl’s best-loved book is a dream ticket into a world where fantasies come to life. From rivers of chocolate to exotic toffee trees, magic is on the menu!

    Fantastic. Dahl uses his imagination well to create the magical elements in all of his stories. He describes the things inside the chocolate factory like they are actually real things.
