Reviews-
  • DOGO Books catad - This book is about a lucky but poor family. Charlie Bucket, Mr. and Mrs. Bucket, Grandpa Joe, Grandma Josephine, Grandpa George and Grandma Georgina. “Charlie dreamed of eating something other that bread, potatoes or cabbage... Most of all he dreamed of CHOCOLATE.” The fantastic creator of chocolate, Mr. Willy Wonka, was opening the gates of his enormous factory!!!!!!!!! and only 5 lucky children were going to enter there... only 5. To enter, you had to find 1 of the 5 golden tickets. The 1st golden ticket was found by: a fat boy called Augustus Gloop. The 2nd was found by: a pretty girl called Veruca Salt. The 3rd was found by: a girl that chews a lot of gum called Violet Beauregarde. The 4th was found by a boy that´s always watching TV who was called Mike Teavee. The last golden ticket was found by.............Do you know who found the last golden ticket? The factory opened the 1st of February at 10 o’clock. They went in. You can´t imagine what happened to the children in there... what a mess!!!!! This is a funny book. The illustrations were made by Quentin Blake and they were great because he illustrates what’s going in the story and you can understand the book better. My favourite part was when Veruca Salt disappeared in a very funny way and what happened to Violet, Mike and Augustus are all funny too. Do you want to know what what happened to the children? As you read this book you might wonder what's going to happen... well... Read it. Roald Dahl writes by exaggerating everything. He says that it is no good having ordinary people they do not interest the reader at all. If somebody is fat he makes them extremely fat. If somebody is short he makes them extremely short. If the person is bad or cruel or nasty he makes them very bad or very cruel or very nasty. He entertains the reader . Quentin Blake illustrates most of Roald Dahl´s books and I like the illustrations I recommend this book to children of 7 to 12 years old that like wonderful and long books. READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!
