Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Charlie Bucket is very  poor. He lives with his parents and his four grandparents in an old wooden house on the edge of a big city.  His grandparents have been in their bed for more than 20 years!

Mr Willy Wonka is the most famous chocolate maker in the entire world.  He has put a golden ticket in five ordinary chocolate bars.  Whoever gets one of these chocolate bars gets to visit his chocolate factory.

The first four winners (Veruca Salt, Mike Teavee, Violet Bauregarde & Augustus Gloop) are greedy.  The fifth winner is Charlie but he gets one chocolate bar a year and that is on his birthday so how does he get the last golden ticket?  He buys the winning chocolate bar with a five pence coin he finds on the street, how lucky!!

Bad things happen to Veruca Salt, Mike Teavee, Violet Bauregarde & Augustus Gloop because they are badly behaved children.  However Charlie and grandpa Joe finish the visit safely...

Mike Teavee is my favourite character because I played his part in my previous school production.  I like the Oompa-Loompas as well because they look funny.

I like the Veruca Salt scene because when she falls in the hole her dad pokes his head down and a squirrel pushes him in.  It is hilarious!

I will recommend this book because it is very humorous but it also sends the message that you have to be a good person to be rewarded.


  1. Well done Rozenn for working hard and really taking care with this blog post. There is a kind of moral to this book, I agree.

    1. Yes, I think that all of his books have a moral!
