He instantly tells his family, and selects his Grandpa Joe to go with him, as all the others dislike the Wonka Factory. The pair go on an epic journey around the factory and end up being the only two left, as the others have been selfish and decide to make silly choices. Charlie is offered to Own the factory, and live there for the rest of his life, along whith his family that is.
This is Charlie finding his ticket
These are all the children; Charlie; Veruca; Mike; Violet; Augustus; and of course, Willy Wonka.
These are all the people who visited the chocolate factory.
It's humorous, with the right amount seriousness to go along with it. The book is suitably for ages five and up. I would recommend reading the book and then watching the movie.
