What the community says about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
- "This book is definitely one of my childhood favorites and probably one of the best books ever written for kids. If you're a big fan of the movie, than this book will definitely peak your interest. It goes into way more detail about Charlie and his family; also there's additional information about the epilogue of the story that the movie never addresses. I highly recommend this book to anyone as if spurs a lot of imagination and nostalgia in it's simplistic writing style."
- "This is Willy Wonka, need I say more? This is a timeless classic that is so awesome, I cannot say enough about it. The re-read value on this is inmeasurable. I absolutely love this book concerning all you can eat candy. This book is awesome and the movies based on the book are even better."
- " It is not a bad option, however, according to my tastes I inclined to; The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde Published by Wordsworth Editions Ltd, United Kingdom (1997) Wilde s only novel, first published in 1890, is a brilliantly designed puzzle, intended to tease conventional minds with its exploration of the myriad interrelationships between art, life, and consequence. From its provocative Preface, challenging the reader to believe in art for art sake, to its sensational conclusion, the story self-consciously experiments with the notion of without an element of design. Yet Wilde himself underestimated the consequences of his experiment, and its capacity to outrage the Victorian establishment. Its words returned to haunt him in his court appearances in 1895, and he later recalled the note of doom which runs like a purple thread through its carefully crafted prose. "
- "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a classic novel it's a humorous and fantasy driven book about a candy factory and luck. The book is very rewarding and really draws the reader in with the mysterious details and fascination of the factories. The book explores an almost fantasy world without leaving your room all packed in a book. "

It is a fun book. Really keeps you interested. This is one of the books listed on the BBC so it was a great find for that also. I recommend purchasing this book today. It is very inexpensive and will provide a great read for you and your children. "

Could you imagine winning a tour through the greatest chocolate factory in the world? Well, if you ever wondered what it's like, check out this book.""Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is still one of my favorite books. I read this book for the first time when I was in second grade and it has been in my top 5 ever since. I began reading this book to my own children and they are just as infatuated with it as I was at their age."
- "One of my favorite stories is the tale of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This classic is a "must-read" for children and helped to peak my early interest in literature. What child doesn't love the idea of visiting a giant candy factory, filled with wonder and mystery?"
- "One of the best classic fantasy books ever, ranks up there with The Wizard of Oz. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has of course been made into two separate movies, but there are details in the book which don't make it onto the big screen in either of those. It's always good to read the original and appreciate the vision of the author. This book is a classic for good reason."
- "When looking for the best of anything I want options, not just one specific thing. Had my topic been looking for just one book this solution may have worked but having a twelve year old child myself I do not think this fits the age category, it would suit a younger age bracket."

in What are the best children's books"For being written by someone who chose working instead of going to college, this book would make a wonderful university text comprising subjects as human relations, manufacturing processes, logic, astronomy and, obviously, economics. The ride within the factory feels like an exploration of a new, unknown universe accessible through the black hole of an entry ticket. I personally felt a virtuous circle from this book: It helped me appreciate the Tim Burton movie, and the movie helped me appreciate the book more."
