As a special event to mark the arrival of the book fair – we had a celebratory Roald Dahl day. So many of the children got into the mood by dressing up as their favourite characters. We had so many Matildas, Charlies, a load of really Fantastic Mr Foxes and many, many more…

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory
By Roald Dahl
Review by Katy
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is about a poor, little boy called Charlie who ends up going to a famous chocolate factory with his old (and thin) Grandpa. Charlie’s family was very, very, very, very poor, and couldn’t afford a lot. Charlie was lucky to get just a chocolate bar for his birthday
One cold, snowy day Willy Wonka (the man who owns the Wonka chocolate factory) announced that 5 golden tickets had been hidden in 5 yummy Wonka chocolate bars, and lucky Charlie found one!
My favourite bit of the book was when Charlie opened a “Scrumdiddlyumptious” chocolate bar! Roald Dahl was very good at making up new words, and new types of sweets -for example; “Snozzberries” and “Luminous Lollies”.
Also in the book there are quite a few songs which I enjoyed. I liked all of this book! Quentin Blake is a very good illustrator and I really, really love the book!
