Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Chocolate rivers and toffee trees… Magic is on the menu in Roald Dahl’s tastiest book! Charlie Bucket loves chocolate. Who doesn’t? Trouble is, his family are so poor that all they can afford to eat is cabbage soup. Yuck. But then Charlie wins a golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory: a paradise of lip-smacking flavours and incredible inventions. Amid the cocoa forests and bubbling vats of sweeties, a life-changing surprise is waiting for Charlie… This book is your dream ticket into a world where fantasies come to life. You’ll gobble up every last word, then ask for seconds.
