Now Mr Willy Wonka, the most wondrous inventor in the world, has hidden golden tickets inside his delicious creamy chocolate bars. Only five winners can go through those great iron gates; will one of them be Charlie?

a truly wonderful book

I love Road Dahl's books and this is one his best. slightly different to both the film's. I'm always fascinated by the interpretations of Willy wonkas mannerisms as it feels every one seems to have a different idea of how he is.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

This is one of his first books
The storyline is lovely, forget about the film, just sit back relax and close your eyes and let the narrator take you to another place
your imagination will do the rest.

The quietest road trip ever with Charlie and chocolate factory playing

This was the first audiobook that my 3 children have listened to. Never before in a car trip have I had so many hours of quiet. Highly recommend. My children are 4,6,8 and they all enjoyed and asked for another one straight away.
