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.
It is a story of Charlie Bucket, , good-natured and well-behaved boy living a life of poverty with his poor, loving parents and their aged parents all of who are suffering cold and have of hunger; how Charlie chances upon a golden ticket placed in a candy bar out of five tickets that allows him and his Grandfather Joe, and four other spoilt children and they rich selfish parents, into Mr. Willy Wonka's world, famous chocolate factory that is never open to the public; the wildly amazing chocolates and candies Being produced in the factory by some strange, laughing and singing Oompa-Loompa tiny workers brought in by Mr. Wonka from Loompaland; and how fortune smiles on Charlie in the end. Songs sung by Oompa-Loompas are also full of fun and humor and delightful to read
HOW WAS THE STORY?
This story is incredibly cool , brilliant and enchanting and it is also the best story i have read and if anyone starts reading it he can’t put it down back, it also has the power to make us change our minds and it is full of charm , Songs sung by Oompa-Loompas are also full of fun and humor and delightful to read.
WHICH IS THE FAVOURITE PART OF THE STORY?
The favorite part of mine in this book was when the girl who was champion in taekwondo became into a big fat purple plum by a chu-gum and her name was Violet and her was very selfish about her. The second favorite part of mine in this story was when Charlie was scared by getting a chocolate from, inside the glass where there were small or tiny chimpanzees
Bye! Have a nice time reading it!

Charlie's fate could be presumed as somewhat lucky but the book is more about the chocolate factory and the four types of evil children in our society.
The book takes you on a high fantast ride and somewhere midway gives deep moralising lessons that you won't forget. The TV poem should be read to all.
I would suggest every parent, every teacher & family member to gift it to children who can read this book.
To be honest I also read this book to be Happy, and certainly this book does make that task better than ever.
This is the story of a small boy named Charlie, who lives with parents and grandparents . The boy is fond of chocolate and he gets an opportunity to visit one of the world's best chocolate factory and the story goes on it a really hilarious. Hope everyone likes this book

Charlie lives down the street from a chocolate factory - Willy Wonka's chocolate factory, the most amazing and most secretive in the world. The smell of melting chocolate in the air drives him wild with both hunger and curiosity. (Living downwind of a biscuit factory, I know what he means!) Mr Wonka announces a competition where the winners of five golden tickets get a free trip to the factory and a lifetime supply of sweets, and the excesses of modern childhood appear in the winners as comedic representatives of greed, materialism, bad manners, and self-absorption win the tickets..... and the final one is found by Charlie, for the most amazing adventure possible.
Roald Dahl spins a modern fairy tale as the scenes depicted within the magical factory are each more colourful and more zany than the last, with many jokes and puns and acidic comments, and several "Revolting Rhymes"-style poems, as sung by the Oompa-Loompas. It is a bit dark, but not excessively so for junior-school aged children. My daughter was barracking for Charlie every step of the way, and was so happy when good things happened to him, that she was turning somersaults around the room.
I also really like the larger colour illustrated edition of the Roald Dahl books. The look great and the pictures add to the storytelling.
I would certainly recomend.
I remember one particularly wet summer holiday in my youth, snuggling up with my Mum, and listening to this book, whilst the rain hammered on the windows and thunder rattled the rooftops. So I borrowed this book from our library (yes, we actually found one!) and read it three times to my 4 year old son, over the space of about 7 weeks. Feeling a little guilty, we returned the book, begrudgingly in my son's case. I look forward to seeing his face when he opens this on his birthday next month!
I was particularly interested to see how he'd take to being read to from my tablet - he loves it and likes watching me flick the pages - I was a little worried the medium would be intrusive, but actually I think it works really well.
I haven't yet picked up any of the page-setting errors other reviewers have noted,so these may well have been remedied now, and the illustrations are luminous and lovely on my Blackberry Playbook (with side-loaded android kindle). I am particularly pleased to see that the kindle version is appropriately priced at £1.99 compared to the full price for the paperback.
With lively illustrations for the kids to enjoy.
