Make it a Roald Dahl Day!  If you haven't read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory or seen Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, no better time than now to discover this classic children's book and its film adaptation. It's a story is about five kids who win a chance to tour Willy Wonka's mysterious candy-making factory through a 'golden ticket' contest and the adventures that follow.  The book, released in 1964, is funny, eccentric and teaches the ever important life lessons of honesty and good behavior. The film, from 1971, fully captures the spirit and humor of the book and has an all time great Gene Wilder performance as Wonka himself.  Read and watch to compare and contrast the book and film!   

This book is available as an eBook and audiobook on Overdrive and film available to stream on Amazon Prime and on Youtube.
