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!
