A book that requires no introduction as it is probably Dahl’s best-known and most read creation and deservedly so. The secretive and magical world of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory is revealed to five ‘lucky’ children, each of who has won a golden ticket. However each child gets their comeuppance in some way, except Charlie of course. Brilliant.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator together in a single bumper volume with phizz-whizzing new Roald Dahl branding!
In Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Mr Willy Wonka opened the gates of his amazing factory to Charlie Bucket, our hero, and four repulsive children. They are Augustus Gloop (greedy), Veruca Salt (spoiled), Violet Beauregard (gum-chewer) and Mike Teavee (TV addict).
Next, in Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, Charlie and his family find themselves orbiting the Earth with Mr Willy Wonka. Whoosh! So grab your gizzard! Hold your hats! Pay attention please. Mr Wonka wouldn't like to lose any of you at this stage of the proceedings...
And now you can listen to Charlie and other

Look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting Twit or Miss! inspired by the revolting Twits.
