Roald Dahl - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Roald Dahl – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory


Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is one of the world’s best-known and best-loved children’s novels, and it’s for good reason – it’s beautifully written, inspired by Dahl’s youth at boarding school when Cadbury used to send the schoolchildren bars of chocolate to try and review.

There’s no greater feeling as a child than to believe that Wonka’s chocolate factory really exists, and that you too could one day find a golden ticket in a chocolate bar and get to tour the facilities. Sure, some of the children are repulsive, but don’t let that stop you from reading it – they all get their comeuppance, in the end.

This is one of those rare novels that everyone should read – if you’re an adult and you still haven’t read it, it’s never too late to catch up. Buy a copy now, and find a child to read it to – they’ll thank you when they’re older, and you’ll thank me for suggesting it. A truly classic work of children’s literature.
