I can't get past the fact that children were being murdered in this whackadoo's candy factory. I liked the descriptions of the imaginary Oompa Loompa world and people, as well as much of the details ... Read full review

Not my favorite Dahl story but it had been a long time since I read it - maybe college? It’s is a really good, incredibly silly story, and I love it in its pure state. Next up is watching the movies - I’ve never seen them! Read full review

Classic story for children of all ages. This delightful tale creates such vivid imagery you'll be tempted to head for the local chocolate store for a snack! The reader can't help but pick up on the fact that the "good" boy is the only one who succeeds in making it through the whole tour, and then gets a huge blessing for his whole family too! A good engaging story that children will never tire of hearing or reading.
