Charlie and the Chocolate Factory




Roald Dahl was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He had an unhappy time at school - at Llandaff Cathedral School, at St Peter’s prep school in Weston-super-Mare and then at Repton in Derbyshire.
Dahl’s unhappy time at school was to influence his writing greatly. He once said that what distinguished him from most other children’s writers was “this business of remembering what it was like to be young”. Roald’s childhood and schooldays are the subject of his autobiography Boy.

Every Christmas, during my childhood, I used to watch the movie inspired on this book.  

Little Charlie and the four old grandparents in only one bed, the incredible moment when he finds the Golden Ticket etc. 

Everything has magically come back to my mind. It surprised me and it made me laugh once again. 

I loved it!
