Product description

Chocolate rivers and toffee trees… 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 then Charlie wins a golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory: a paradise of lip-smacking flavours and incredible inventions. Amid the cocoa forests and bubbling vats of sweeties, a life-changing surprise is waiting for Charlie… This book is your dream ticket into a world where fantasies come to life. You’ll gobble up every last word, then ask for seconds.

“The ultimate children’s story ever.” David Walliams

    I thought it was a great book although at the beginning i didn’t think it was very good because it didn’t tell you much about Willy Wonka.

    Roald Dahl’s most delectable novel returns with a phizz-whizzing new look – exciting, bold and instantly recognisable! Charlie’s whole life changes when 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 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!

    This was funny and it teaches us not to touch anything in sight until permitted. I like how the factory is made of everything edible and the poor kid won the factory. i wish I had that much luck.
