Along with his other classic, "James and the Giant Peach", Roald Dalh's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" stands at the top of the heap when it comes to children's books. This is a pure classic of imagination, storytelling and magic. Far superior to the film (where Willy Wonka becomes the title character), the book tells the story from Charlie Bucket's point of view. Charlie, who lives with his four ancient grandparents and his mother in a one-room house, is the kind of child who can only dream about his future, since his family has barely enough money to survive. When the Wonka chocolatier announces that five golden tickets to visit the aged factory have been carefully tucked inside chocolate bars the world over, Charlie's dreams are suddenly wide open. He stumbles on some money in the street, purchases a chocolate bar and is thrust into the limelight beccoming one of the five lucky vistors. The rest of the tale is one of scrumptous folly and nerve-wracking sentiment, highlighted by magical workers (the one and only Oompa Loompas), the etheral Willy Wonka, a host of loony characters - both adults and kids - and a thrill ride in a factory where time stands still and also rocks forwards, backwards, sideways and then some! It's a classic tale of the triumph of good over evil, generosity over greed and family over fair-weathered friends. Sure to be enjoyed by children of all ages, adults included, this is the best children's book ever written - and deserves prominent place in every child's library.

From the back cover: "The gates of Mr. Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory are opening at last--and only five children will be allowed inside. And the winners are:
-Augustus Gloop-a fat pig who would eat anything that came within reach or bite
-Veruca Salt-a spoiled brat with parents trained to jump at her every scream
-Violet Beauregarde-a gum chewing gabber with the fastest jaws and the slowerst wits around
-Mike Teavee-a fiend for television
-Charlie Bucket-Our Hero, who is honest and kind, brave and true, and good and ready for the wildest time of his life!"
