Summary When Charlie wins the fifth Golden Ticket, it allows him to fulfil his dearest wish, to have a specially conducted tour of the mysterious chocolate factory, and who wouldn't want to wander in a place which made Whipple-scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight or Cavity-filling Caramels or Strawberry-juice Water Pistols or Lickable Wallpaper for nurseries? But there are dangers in store as well, especially for such unlovable characters as Veruca Salt, who disappears down the Great Rubbish Chute, or Augustus Gloop, who is swept away in a river of hot melted chocolate, or Violet Beauregarde who . . . but it's all here in this famous story, waiting 'to entrance, delight, intrigue, astonish and perplex you beyond measure'
