Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rich in humor, acutely observant, Dahl lets his imagination rip in fairyland." —The New York Times

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. --This text refers to the library edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars We loved it!
By Mrs. Roger Wilco on January 16, 2016
I didn’t read this book as a child, so now that I have children of my own, we really loved reading this book together. It is written in a way that young and old can enjoy it.

It’s about a young boy's journey to winning a tour through the chocolate factory in his town. There are plenty of times where we laughed out loud at the ridiculous imagination of Roald Dahl. We are going to order the next one in the series so we can see what else happens!

5.0 out of 5 stars Colourful !!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 28, 2020
I ordered this book as a gift thinking it was a normal sized paperback (I didn't look at the size before ordering) with the odd coloured illustration, but when it arrived it was a lovely surprise to find it's a large paperback book (26.4 cm x 19.8 cm) and all of the actual pages are multi-coloured (lovely ice cream colours) and then all of the illustrations (and they are on every page) are coloured too !! A fantastic story and a beautiful book. (my photo's are a bit rubbish and don't do the colours justice)

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.
