This is an outstanding fantasy novel by the famous children’s author Roald Dahl. I read this book many years ago and when I reread this book recently, I found this as the best children’s book ever written. I equally enjoyed the fantasy tale of Charlie. The story is about a poor boy Charlie who lives in poverty with his family. He is cute and well mannered. He loves Wonka chocolates. He receives one Wonka chocolates every year on his birthday by his family. Willy Wonka, the enigmatic owner of a giant chocolate factory, announces that five golden tickets have been hidden inside random sweetie wrappers. Whoever uncovers them will win a visit to top secret candy plant. When Charlie comes to know about it, it’s like a dream opportunity coming his way. He really wishes to go and visit his favorite chocolate factory. One day, he retrieves one dollar from ground and immediately buys two chocolates. Luckily, he gets a golden ticket in the second chocolate wrapper. Next day, he goes along with the four winners to chocolate factory. Rest of the four are not as nice as Charlie. During the visit, four children misbehave against Wonka's warnings and result in an accident with them. Charlie is the only one who is not punished. Then, there is a wonderful surprise waiting for Charlie that changes his life forever. You will fall in love with Charlie as the story progresses. Full of fantasy and fun.
Fabulous read for all kids or teens. Read this book and get mesmerized……………
