About the Edition

Augustus Gloop eats himself sick.

Veruca Salt is a spoiled rotten brat.

Violet Beauregarde chews gum day and night.

Mike Teavee is a television fiend.

Charlie Buckett, Our Hero, is brave and true and very, very hungry.

What do these five have in common? Why, they're the luckiest children in the entire world; they've each won the chance to enter Willy Wonka's famous, mysterious chocolate factory.

What happens when the big doors swing open to reveal Mr. Wonka's secrets? What happens when they come upon the tiny factory workers who sing in rhyme? What happens when, one by one, the children disobey Mr. Wonka's orders? In Roald Dahl's most popular story for children, the nasty are punished and the good are deliciously, sumptuously rewarded.
