The story features the adventures of young Charlie Bucket inside the chocolate factory of eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka. Knopf, Inc. Dahl had also planned to write a third book in the series but never finished it. The story was originally inspired by Roald Dahl's experience of chocolate companies during his schooldays. Cadbury would often send test packages to the schoolchildren in exchange for their opinions on the new products.
Charlie Bucket can't believe his luck when he finds the last of the five Golden Tickets under the wrapper of a Wonka chocolate bar, and wins the chance of a lifetime: a magical day inside Wonka's mysterious factory, witnessing the miraculous creation of the most delectable eatables ever made. The thing is, nobody has seen Wonka or been inside his factory for 15 years, so neither Charlie, nor the other four ticket holders, has any idea what surprises the factory will contain There are two films made out of this book: one is a musical adaptation under the title Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory , starring Gene Wilder as Wonka and released in , and the other produced under the same title as the book, with Freddie Highmore as Charlie and Johnny Depp as Wonka, released in Both films have significant plot differences from the book. A great read, full of fun.
