Product description

Amazon.com Review

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and its sequel, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, along with Roald Dahl's other tales for younger readers, make him a true star of children's literature. Dahl seems to know just how far to go with his oddball fantasies; in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, for example, nasty Violet Beauregarde blows up into a blueberry from sneaking forbidden chewing gum, and bratty Augustus Gloop is carried away on the river of chocolate he wouldn't resist. In fact, all manner of disasters can happen to the most obnoxiously deserving of children because Dahl portrays each incident with such resourcefulness and humor.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a singular delight, crammed with mad fantasy, childhood justice and revenge, and as much candy as you can eat. The book is also available in Spanish (Charlie y la Fabrica de Chocolate). (The suggested age range for this book is 9-12, but nobody this reviewer has met can resist it, including New York City bellhops, flight attendants, and grumpy teenagers.)

From the Inside Flap

What happens when the five luckiest children in the entire world walk through the doors of Willy Wonka's famous, mysterious chocolate factory? What happens when, one by one, the children disobey Mr. Wonka's orders? In Dahl's most popular story, the nasty are punished and the good are deliciously, sumptuously rewarded.

"From the Hardcover edition.

Reviewed in India on 25 October 2018
This story is about a boy named Charlie Bucket who lived with his family. His family barely managed to survive with very little money. There would be some days when Charlie would survive on cabbage soup or just starve. His life was totally miserable.
.
.
.
But there was on thing that made Charlie happy and that was the smell of the chocolate factory, he used to pass by, twice a day while going and coming back from school. He always used to look at the giant chocolate factory and was eager to know that how would it look from inside.
.
.
The chocolate factory, belonged to Willy Wonka who manufactured the most magical, mouth watering, beautiful and scrumptious chocolates in the whole world. One day, he held a contest for children where he announced that a Golden Ticket would be hidden underneath the ordinary wrapping paper of 5 ordinary bars of chocolate. The 5 lucky finders of these 5 Golden tickets would earn a free day tour in his giant chocolate factory and would also be allowed to see the secrets and magic of his factory.
.
.
A visit to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory is nothing less than a dream come true for any child in the world. His chocolate factory is every chocolate lover's paradise.
.
.
Who would be the 5 luckiest kids who would get a chance to win a free day tour to the chocolate factory ?
Would Charlie be one those 5 kids who would win a day tour to the chocolate factory ?
.
.
This book is soo good that after reading it you are surely going to crave for chocolates 😜😜

I give 5 / 5.
