"It's Scrumdidilyumtious!"

"It's Scrumdidilyumtious!" those are the famous words of Willy Wonka the chocolateer. He is an inventor of many candies from his factory. One day Willy Wonka said "All right I'm sending out 5 golden tickets in the candy bars. Then every one started screaming for them. Charlie Bucket the 5th golden ticket finder is a considerate and very nice to people. Charlie is very poor, and lived with his four grandparents and his mom and dad. Veruca the 2nd golden was very snobby and very rude. Veruca was so snobby that she fell down a shoot because she was being rude. She asked her dad for a squirrel. Then she slipped and fell down the shoot. Violet the 3rd golden ticket finder turned into a blueberry. She did not listen to Willy Wonka. She had eaten a piece of gum that was not ready yet. Then they had to roll her out of the room to squeeze the juice out of her. Augustus Gloomp was the first golden ticket finder. He got stuck in a tube full of chocolate. He could not swim so he got sucked up in the tube. Mike Tevee was the kid that got turned into a candy bar. He got turned into the candy bar because he got put into a TV that turned him into a candy bar. To find out what happened to Charlie you have to read this book called "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: A Play" by Rauld Dual.

A great adaptation for kids

As a teacher, I find this book a valuable resource for teaching the different forms of theatrical plays. As the latest Tim Burton's adaptation opens wide, my pupils will experience a whole range of text types from the source material. An excellent read too! My kids had a good laugh, just from the experience of role-play and Reader's Theatre.

This is a classic!

I really love this classic story, and reading it as a play allowed me to see it from a director's point of view. Perfect for use in a school production, or children's roleplay at home. Easy reading, simple for a young child to understand.

Read along to take a trip through a chocolate factory!

I read the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. This was a great book to read. Though this was fictional, it was also realistic because you could picture the story going on in your head. I also found myself feeling like I was going through the experiences along with the story. Enough with the rating, let's get to the story so you can read it and rate it yourself! A young, poor child, Charlie, lived with a very poor family. Once a year, on his birthday, his grandparents along with his parents (to chip in with money) would give him one measly little Willie Wonka's chocolate candy bar. His clothes were in rags, he was all dirty and very sad that he was this way. One day he saw that there was a contest that had to do with Willie Wonka's chocolate factory. Mr. Wonka would put 5 golden tickets in his Willie Wonka chocolate bars. Charlie wanted to win the contest so bad, but he only got candy bars once a year, so he didn't have a good chance of winning one of the golden tickets. His grandfather decided that since the contest was so important to Charlie, he would get him a candy bar. The next day, his grandfather got him a chocolate candy bar. Everyone was so eager for him to open and win because you wouldn't just get a golden ticket, but a tour through the factory and a 1 year supply of candy bars! When Charlie opened the wrapper, so eager to win, there was no golden ticket. Charlie was so upset because he really thought that he had a chance. Until.... The next day, to his surprise, he found money in the sewer to buy a candy bar at the candy shop. He was kind of scared and eager to win because he wouldn't have anymore money to take a second chance. He opened the door to the candy shop and stepped in the shop, hoping that he would win a golden ticket, for there was only one more left. He selected a bar and carefully peeled open the wrapper. In amazement, he found the golden ticket! Yes, it was the last golden ticket and he had won it! Everyone crowded around Charlie in hope that maybe they could grab it from him. He was very excited, but also scared that maybe some adult or kid would grab the golden ticket for themselves. Finally the storekeeper said to go home and show his family what he had won in his candy bar. When Charlie went home and screamed that he had won the golden ticket everyone cheered. It was now ready to go to the front gate of the factory. I'm sure that you know how little Charlie must have felt winning the prize. You'll have to read the book to find out what happens along the tour with Mr. Wonka himself.

Ilike the book very well.

I liked the book a very lot because i love chocolate.My favorite character was Varuca Salt because she got really good cloths and every thing she wants.I think that Charlie was a very nice kid becausehhe was raised up to be a very nice kid. I liked him batter then the rest of the children because he was brought up to be avery polight boy and has lots of good manners.
