Description of this Book

Phizz-whizzing new branding for Roald Dahl, the world's No. storyteller! Exciting, bold and instantly recognisable with Quentin Blake's inimitable artwork. This is the famous story of Charlie Bucket and his Golden Ticket, and Willy Wonka and his amazing chocolate factory. Mr Willy Wonka, the most wondrous inventor in the world, opens his gates of his amazing chocolate factory to five lucky children. Gobstoppers, wriggle sweets and a river of melted chocolate delight await. Charlie needs just one Golden Ticket and these delicious treats could all be his! The ultimate children's story ever. (David Walliams). Now you can listen to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Other Roald Dahl audiobooks read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - and there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios! Look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play - including the disgusting Twit or Miss! and House of Twits inspired by the revolting Twits.

Author's Bio

Sitting in a hut at the bottom of his garden, surrounded by odd bits and pieces such as a suitcase (used as a footrest), his own hipbone (which he'd had replaced) and a heavy ball of metal foil (made from years' worth of chocolate wrappers), Roald Dahl wrote some of the world's best-loved stories including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Twits, The Witches, The BFG, Fantastic Mr Fox, James and the Giant Peach and lots more. Quentin Blake is one of Britain's most successful illustrators. He has illustrated nearly three hundred books and he was Roald Dahl's favourite illustrator. He has won many awards including the Whitbread Award and the Kate Greenaway Medal and taught for over twenty years at the Royal College of Art. In 1999 he became the first ever Children's Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted in the New Year's Honours.
