Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory is opening at last! But only five lucky children will be allowed inside.

This is a book that reminds all readers of their childhood dreams (like visiting a candy factory!).

An absolutely fantastic novel, one of the most imaginative works of its time. Dahl, as always, takes several moral messages and builds them up in comical, musical and, often, unbelievable ways. One of the few novels that will leave you drooling, craving the confectionary concoctions marvellously described within.

This is a great book that shows the flaws of humanity in a sensitive way that wouldn't upset children, but it would make them think. This is Dahl's greatest work and truly a children's masterpiece.
