9780141348315: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Puffin Audiobooks Roald Dahl's classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, read by Douglas Hodge, who plays Willy Wonka in the West End musical. This audiobook features original music and sound design by Pinewood film studios.

Charlie Bucket desperately wants to eat more than cabbage soup every day. But even more than that, he longs to see Wonka's enormous chocolate factory!

Now Mr Willy Wonka, the most wondrous inventor in the world, has hidden golden tickets inside his delicious creamy chocolate bars. Only five winners can go through those great iron gates; will one of them be Charlie?

Douglas Hodge is a multi-award-winning English actor, with Olivier and Tony awards for his performance in La Cage aux Folles, and nominations for his leading roles in Cyrano de Bergerac, Guys and Dolls and Inadmissible Evidence. In 2013 he is playing the role of Willy Wonka in Sam Mendes' musical of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Review:

For the first time in a decade, Willy Wonka, the reclusive and eccentric chocolate maker, is opening his doors to the public--well, five members of the public, actually. The lucky five who find a Golden Ticket in their Wonka bars will receive a private tour of the factory, given by Mr Wonka himself. For young Charlie Bucket, this a dream come true. So when he finds a dollar bill in the street, he can't help but buy two Wonka's Whipple-Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delights--even though his impoverished family could certainly use the extra dollar for food. But as Charlie unwraps the second chocolate bar, he sees the glimmer of gold just under the wrapper. The very next day, Charlie, along with his unworthy fellow winners Mike Teavee, Veruca Salt, Violet Beauregarde and Augustus Gloop, steps through the factory gates to discover whether or not the rumours surrounding the Chocolate Factory and its mysterious owner are true. What they find is that the gossip can't compare to the extraordinary truth, and for Charlie, life will never be the same again. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: another unforgettable masterpiece from the legendary Roald Dahl, never fails to delight, thrill and utterly captivate. (Ages 9 to 12) --Susan Harrison

Review:

The best books grow old gracefully. They retain their importance and affect each new generation as powerfully as the one before. (Julia Eccleshare Lovereading4Kids)
