Twice turned into a feature film, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a delectable classic about a child’s dreams and the eccentric chocolate-maker who makes them come true. When Willy Wonka’s hallowed chocolate factory holds a worldwide contest awarding tours to the lucky, five children emerge as winners, including a glutton, a gum-chewing nitwit, a spoiled brat, and a TV addict. Only Charlie Bucket, the story’s earnest hero, stands to win the exotic riches of Wonka’s empire—if he avoids the pitfalls of his fellow contestants and stays true to his heart. Ingenious and entertaining, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a true modern classic by one of the most beloved storytellers of our time.
