Title: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Author: Roald Dahl

Books and Movies are like apples and oranges. They are both fruits but completely different!
Books related to chocolate and fantasy have always been my favourite.
Reviewing this book written by Roald Dahl, which takes us into the world of chocolate, is of course going to be my area of interest. It not only has a book but also a movie inspired by the same title. It is because of this particular movie that I started to read more and more books!
Movie Release : 2004
Director: Tim Burton
This book is not just has fantasy but also moral teaching!!! These moral teachings could include- not touching unknown things, not eating unknown food or not stealing anything.
Well, I just forgot to give a summary of the story. So, the story features a young boy named Charlie and four other kids being invited to Willy Wonka‘s chocolate factory. This chocolate factory is one of the worlds largest chocolate factory having dwarfs known as Oompa-Loompas, for the factory’s working and maintenance. All the five kids were accompanied with at least one adult to be taken care of. Getting into the chocolate factory wasn’t an easy task. Willy Wonka had hidden five golden tickets, in five of his chocolates selling all around the world. The people who found the golden ticket were invited to the factory!
While visiting each and every room in the factory, the four kids became super excited and that is why they got into some trouble or the other! For example, Augustus gets sucked up the pipe, Violet blows up into a giant blueberry after chewing gum, Veruca is thrown down the garbage chute after trying to capture one of the nut-testing squirrels and Mike gets shrunk down to the size of an ant, after being sent by Wonkavision.
Till the very end, it was only Charlie who was in a good and composed condition, not being tempted by the chocolates around him! Willy Wonka was so delighted, that he decided to give a special flight back to Charlie’s house in a glass flying lift. Even I got goosebumps and so this has to be my favourite part of all!!
Out of the whole story and the movie we learn that one must always be calm, polite and understanding, just like the young boy.
Hence, you hopefully might have learned something good from this story! Do read this book as well as the movie which both are super entertaining!!
