A beloved children’s classic, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is perhaps Roald Dahl’s most popular novel, with two movie adaptations under its belt. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tells the tale of young Charlie Bucket, the youngest member of an impoverished family, who is enchanted by the nearby Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory. The notoriously reclusive Willy Wonka has declared his long isolated Chocolate Factory open to five children who obtain a lucky golden ticket, hidden inside five of his chocolate bars. Against all odds, Charlie finds a golden ticket, and along with his Grandpa Joe, he is given a grand tour of Wonka’s factory, a confectionary of eccentric and sweet delights. However, the centerpiece of Dahl’s novel is the decided contrast between Charlie’s humble and eager nature, and the spoiled petulance of the four other children. The repercussions that face the overindulged children are lighthearted, but pointed, and the moral backbone of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is what has made Dahl’s novel an enduring classic.
