Title: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Author: Roald Dahl
# of Pages: 176
Genre: Children’s Literature
Okay, so I read this book about a hundred times as a kid. But, I recently was horrified to find out that Matt had not, so I ended up sneaking a copy into the car when we were headed home to Bountiful so that I could read it aloud to him.
I won’t go into the details of the story here (since I’m assuming most people are at least familiar with the movie), but I will say this: Roald Dahl is probably one of the most brilliant children’s book authors of all time. All of his books are a delight to read, whether you’re 8 or 88. So if, like Matt, you find yourself in the position of only having seen the movie of this great story, you’d better repent stat and get yourself to a library right this very second.
My Rating: 5 Stars
