Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a beloved classic that is a timeless favourite of teachers and students.
Charlie Bucket lives on the outskirts of town with his poverty-stricken family: his parents and all four grandparents. Each day on his way to school, Charlie passes the best and biggest chocolate factory in the world, run by the secretive Willy Wonka.
Things go from bad to worse when Charlie’s father loses his job. Grandpa Joe tells Charlie that competitors stole Wonka’s candy-making secrets in the past, and the factory shut down. Later, the factory resumed production, but no one was ever seen entering or leaving.
One day, Wonka announces that he has hidden golden tickets in five Wonka chocolate bars, with the prize of a factory tour and a lifetime supply of Wonka products for each child who finds a ticket. Wonka-mania encircles the globe, and one by one, four of the tickets are found. Charlie finds money sticking out of a snowbank and buys himself two Wonka chocolate bars; the second contains the last golden ticket.
