Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is about a boy named Charlie who finds the last golden ticket and he gets to go to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. At the factory, there are lots of rooms full of different candies. There are five kids that go to the factory and afterward they get a lifetime supply of candy. First Augustus Gloop gets sucked up by a fudge pipe because he fell in the chocolate river because he was drinking it. And then Violet Beauregarde chews up bubble gum that she wasn't supposed to chew because Willly Wonka hadn't made it right and it made her turn into a giant blueberry. Veruca Salt goes into the Nut Room where squirrels attack her and push her down the garbage shoot and she goes into the furnace along with her mom and dad. Then Mike Teavee goes into a t.v. room and sees chocolate get sent over him and them Mike Teavee sends himself by television and he wasn't supposed to and he gets really small and he has a tantrum because he wants to watch t.v. and his mom won't let him anymore. Charlie is the last kid left and Willy Wonka gives him the chocolate factory because he won. He was the only one left because all of the other kids did bad things.
I liked the book because it was funny. I think kids would like it too.
