From the Publisher
Matilda Wormwood is only five years old, but she is a genius. Unfortunately, her parents are too stupid to even notice. Worse, her horrible headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, is a bully who makes life difficult—especially for Matilda's teacher, Miss Honey, and her friends. However, what Miss Trunchbull doesn't know is that Matilda is an incredibly clever child and has a trick or two up her sleeve...
Nobody has seen Willy Wonka—or the inside of his amazing chocolate factory—in years. When Wonka announces his plans to invite the winners of five Golden Tickets to visit his factory, the whole world is after those tickets! Little Charlie Bucket longs to find a Golden Ticket and get the chance to visit the mysterious factory and well, he has just as much chance as anyone else, doesn’t he?
James Henry Trotter lives with his two horrid aunts, Spiker and Sponge, who never let him have fun or play with other children. He hasn't got a single friend in the whole wide world. That is, not until he meets the Old Green Grasshopper and the rest of the insects aboard a giant, magical peach!
The Big Friendly Giant, BFG, is unlike other giants. For a start, he’d rather eat repulsant snozzcumbers than chomp on innocent children—lucky for little Sophie, he is far too nice and jumbly. It's not long before the BFG becomes Sophie's very best friend, and the pair are hatching a clever plan to deal with the cruel and nasty giants—with a very exceptional ally.

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.
My son wrote this review as he was the one that read and enjoyed this book, I've read this book myself but it was many a moons ago...
A really good book and is the first book of the 'Charlie and The...' series. And is the most popular Roald Dahl book to this date, well I think so anyway. It's about a boy called 'Charlie' that can't afford to buy chocolate bars but luckily finds some money and buys some and shares the chocolate with his family. There's a few golden tickets available hidden in chocolate bars and his grandpa gives him his savings to buy one more bar of chocolate hoping to find the golden ticket which de does.
He takes a tour around the secret chocolate factory with his grandpa with a group of misbehaved children. Eventually Charlie is the only one left at the end and ignore the offer to him by Mr Wonkas employee which led Mr Wonka to give him the factory and Charlies whole family move in living happily ever after.
The characters are:
Mr and Mrs Bucket;
Mr Willy Wonka;
The Oompa Loompas;
Mr and Mrs Gloop and Augustus Gloop;
Mr and Mrs Teavee and Mike Teavee;
Mr and Mrs Beauregarde and Violet Beauregarde
Mr and Mrs Salt and Veruca Salt
Overall very well-done book with a very good storyline, I just wish there was a competition so that I could win a chocolate factory, I wouldn't mind any factory just so long as it makes chocolate.

It was bought for our Ukrainian 11 year old but proved to be too difficult for him to get a grasp off. I enjoyed it though, I read it twice!
