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!
On the occasion of its 40th anniversary, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, illus. by Quentin Blake, presents the famous story interspersed with Blake's characteristically frenetic line drawings, with clusters of candy sprinkled across the pages. Pink, lavender, baby blue and yellow backgrounds of the pages make a sugary new wrapper for this favorite tale. .

This book was our friend for the last 1 month as I read to my son every night- 1 chapter a night.
Enjoyed it thoroughly!
Best childhood book
When I was in 2nd grade my class & I read a few oh his books & I instantly became in love with his style oh literature. I loved them so much after a month later of just reading a little passage of his books that my family bought his entire collection.
Dahl is one of the greatest authors who ever lived & I am happy now that his great works are now in iBooks!
I think that this is an awesome book. Sure did help me with my homework to read 20 minutes every night for school. Totally recommend it to anyone who would want to read it?
