Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory is opening at final! But only 5 lucky young children will likely be allowed inside. And the winners are: Augustus Gloop, an enormously fat boy whose hobby is eating; Veruca Salt, a spoiled-rotten brat whose parents are wrapped about her tiny finger; Violet Beauregarde, a dim-witted gum-chewer with all the fastest jaws around; Mike Teavee, a toy pistol-toting gangster-in-training who is obsessed with television; and Charlie Bucket, Our Hero, a boy who is honest and kind, brave and true, and good and ready for the wildest time of his life!
Charlie as correctly as the Chocolate Factory and its sequel, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, together with Roald Dahl's other tales for younger readers, make him a true star of children's literature. Dahl seems to know just how far to go with his oddball fantasies; in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, for example, nasty Violet Beauregarde blows up into a blueberry from sneaking forbidden chewing gum, and bratty Augustus Gloop is carried away on the river of chocolate he wouldn't resist. In fact, all manner of disasters can happen to basically the most obnoxiously deserving of young children because Dahl portrays each incident with such resourcefulness and humor.
Charlie too as the Chocolate Factory can be a singular delight, crammed with mad fantasy, childhood justice and revenge, and as a lot candy as you can eat. The book is also available in Spanish (Charlie y la Fabrica de Chocolate ). (The recommended age range for this book is 9-12, but nobody this reviewer has met can resist it, including New York City bellhops, flight attendants, and grumpy teenagers.)
