Title: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Written by: Roald Dahl
Illustrated by: Quentin Blake
Reviewed by: Shyam K., Grade 3
The book is about a boy, named Charlie, who wins a trip to a magical land called the Chocolate Factory. Once he is there, he has many wonderful and fantastic adventures. The message is about peace, unity and cooperation, and not being greedy.
The setting in which Charlie lives is a very poor house, with his poor family. He wins a prize to come to a great chocolate factory owned by Willie Wonka. The fact that Charlie is poor is important, because the other children who win the prize are very rich, spoiled brats.
Charlie is the main character of the book. Because he comes from a very poor background, he is not spoiled, like the other children. He listens to Mr. Wonka, is kind and caring, and does not abuse the privileges that Mr. Wonka gives him.
I liked the illustrations and they help to keep me interested in the story.
I would recommend this book highly to other readers, as it is a fun, wonderful story, full of magical adventures.
