Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

I really enjoyed this story written by him. I feel in this writing he always has a way to keep the reader interested and make them want to keep reading. In this book and group of kids get a gold thing in their candy bar and get to go and look at this amazing chocolate factory. But during their visit,a few complications happen. Read it to find out. I absolutley reccommend it.
