Do you like mysteries and fantasy all rolled up into one book? If so, you should read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This story is about a boy named Charlie who lives with his family. There is a contest where 5 golden tickets are hidden inside chocolate bars. The winners get to visit the factory. Charlie really wishes to find one of the tickets. Does Charlie find a golden ticket? You will have to read the book to find out!
This book was really good. I liked how excited Charlie was when he actually found the golden ticket. The main character, Charlie reminds me of myself. He shows determination and perseverance in the book and I am a lot like that. This is one of the books in a series. It is my favorite book so far.
Kids of all ages will love this book. Readers who like chocolate and candy will think this book is sweet. Grab a box of candy and get ready for a whole new world. This book has 180 pages.
