Roald Dahl was, quite simply, one of the best-loved children's book authors of all time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity and that of his books—Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, James and the Giant Peach, and Danny the Champion of the World, to name just a few—continues to grow.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chocolate Fantasy This book was one of the choices for my book club in January. I don't think I've ever actually read the book, which is surprising, since I've seen the Gene Wilder movie at least a dozen times. What a fun book to read. I curled up in bed and got lost in fantasy. I tried reading it to my nephew and niece, 4 1/2 and 2 1/2....but it's a bit too advanced for them. Maybe next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scrumdidilyumptious! Charlie & The Chocolate Factory is truly one of the best children's books of the 20th century. Roald Dahl has written a story full of humour, unbelievable situations, a bit of sarcasm...and most importantly, chocolate! The story of a young boy named Charlie is exciting, heartwarming and funny. Poor Charlie would like nothing more than to eat and help out his family. Then one day, Willy Wonka, the mysterious owner of the local chocolate factory decides to invite some children to tour the factory by hiding golden tickets in some of his chocolate bars. Once at the factory, the other children seem to meet unfortunate situations due to their misbehaviour. However, Charlie proves to be the nicest child in the group. Some worry that the story might be disturbing to some younger children, however the book is not nearly as scary as the movies are. If children can handle the movie, they'll love the book. This 40th anniversary hardcover is a great keepsake and has awesome illustrations and a large font so it's easy to read. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone from children to adults. It's a classic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Book An excellent book that teaches children important lessons, especially to listen to older people. When 4 children didn't listen to Mr. Wonka, they were punished in diabolical, yet funny ways. Three cheers for Roald Dahl!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WONDERFUL, A MUST READ This book is the best children's book ever written in my opinion. No child should grow up without reading it or having it read to them. I was fortunate that my teacher read it to our class in school and I have recommended it to everyone I know ever since. A+
