Charlie Bucket's wonderful adventure begins when he finds one of Mr. Willy Wonka's precious Golden Tickets and wins a whole day inside the mysterious chocolate factory. Little does he know the surprises that are in store for him!

Book has illustrations and pictures from the 2005 movie starring Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka.

If you seen, and liked, the movie, you NEED to read the book. It's a bit different than both the movies. Very entertaining read. My kids loved hearing this book in 4th grade. I enjoyed reading it with them just as much.

My daughter loved this book. I told her she had to read it before we saw the movie, and she finished it faster than she had finished any other book.

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
and
-Charlie Bucket-Our Hero, who is honest and kind, brave and true, and good and ready for the wildest time of his life!"

This book is about a boy named Charlie who gets a lucky candy bar like 4 other children that get to go to a factory. I could tell it is great because it has 2 movie based on it (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory 1971 and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 2005).

It's been nearly 20 years since I first read this book, but I still found it to be very enjoyable!

This was a little too creepy for my kids (4 and 6yrs old), so I opted not to. But it was still a fun re-read for me :)

This book delighted my five year old, and myself as well. We loved each moment of Charlie's adventure, and the details are perfect for vocabulary building, but not too dramatic to confuse my young son.

We are off to read more Roald Dahl, our favorite new-old author. Sometimes classics are the best!!!
