Editorial Reviews

"Douglas Hodge delivers Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in a briskly melodic canter, and his rendering holds its own against memories of cinema's Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp." (Gregory Maguire, The New York Times Book Review)

Publisher's Summary

Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory is opening at last! 
But only five lucky children will be allowed inside. And the winners are: Augustus Gloop, an enormously fat boy whose hobby is eating; Veruca Salt, a spoiled-rotten brat whose parents are wrapped around her little finger; Violet Beauregarde, a dim-witted gum chewer with the fastest jaws around; Mike Teavee, a toy-pistol-toting gangster-in-training who is obsessed with television; and Charlie Bucket, Our Hero, a boy who is honest and kind, brave and true, and good and ready for the wildest time of his life!

fanciful fun for five-year-olds

Would you listen to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory again? Why?

We have listened to this book over and over again! The author is very engaging with voices and sound effects able keep the attention of even the youngest audience.

SQUARE SWEETS THAT LOOK ROUND

MATURITY IS HIGHLY OVER RATED
NO ARGUMENTS PLEASE
I have listened to several of Dahl's books and liked them all. This one is my favorite so far. You can not compare Dahl to other writers because he does not write like other writers. He has an imagination that is all his own and very little is borrowed from anyone else. This book is especially unique and I know of no other like it. It is entertaining and heart warming. If you read only one Dahl book, let it be this one.

IT WILL ALL COME OUT IN THE WASH
