Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Front Cover
Puffin Books, 1998 - Juvenile Fiction - 155 pages
"Candy for life and a tour of Willie Wonka's top-secret chocolate factory
was the prize for buying a candy bar containing a Golden Ticket. Here is the
exciting, hilarious, and moral story of the five prizewinners. They were, alas,
repulsive children, with the exception of Charlie Bucket, whose family was so
poor he could only have one candy bar a year. Rich in humor, acutely observant,
Dahl lets his imagination rip in fairyland."-- "The New York Times."

About the author (1998)

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.

After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.

Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.
