The story : Charlie Bucket, a little boy, loves chocolate. And Mr Willy Wonka, the famous chocolate maker, invites five children to visit his chocolate factory.

My opinion : <3 <3
I like this story because it shows that it is not still enough to be rich or to be a champion to achieve its dreams. The english version is so easily to read bud there is also a french version. I like also the 2 films adapted (one with Johnny Depp).
++ Films adaptations : Charlie and the chocolate factory (1971) by Mel Stuart and other one by Tim Burton (2005).
