You MUST have heard of Mr Willy Wonka! He's the most extraordinary chocolate maker in the world.
But do you know who Charlie is? Charlie Bucket is the hero of this book.
The other children in our story are nasty little beasts, called:
Augustus Gloop - a great big greedy nincompoop
Veruca Salt - a spoiled brat
Violet Beauregarde - a repulsive little gum-chewer
Mike Teavee - a boy who only watches television
And all these children have won a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit Mr Wonka's chocolate factory...
But what mysterious secrets will they discover?
Our tour is about to begin. Please don't wander off. Mr Wonka wouldn't like to lose any of you at this stage of the proceedings . . .
