The Timeless Story of Willy Wonka
Willy Wonka is the famous inventor of the Everlasting Gobstopper. He announces that he will be inviting a select group of guests to tour his factory. Charlie Bucket finds a gold ticket inside a candy bar, and he and four other children soon find themselves in a world of chocolate waterfalls, a glass elevator, and Oompa-Loompas.
Dahl’s book was the basis for a 1971 film starring Gene Wilder entitled Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Tim Burton directed a remake starring Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka in 2005. It had the novel’s original title.
