Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory is opening at last! But only five lucky children will 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 around her little finger; Violet Beauregarde, a dim-witted gum-chewer with the fastest jaws around; Mike Teavee, a toy pistol-toting...

Although published way before 'Matilda', this one only excited me a little (especially with the way the other kids are described) mostly because I knew the story already. Nonetheless, Dahl's genius mind for imagination certainly needs to be praised. A fantastic read for kids and adults alike. TN.

Amazing imaginative story that children will love. Young Charlie yearns to be able to enjoy chocolate more often but his family is extremely poor, so only on his birthday each year does he receive a chocolate bar. Then there is a contest, and he longs to find the golden ticket that will allow him a visit into the mystical chocolate factory. The author came up with the most amazing chocolate factory one could never create in their wildest dreams. It's a fun story.

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.
