About Charlie

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator are wonderful stories about a poor boy who finally has some great luck when he finds a golden ticket in his candy bar.

Although Charlie and his family are poor, he is well loved, well behaved, and sweet. He values everything he has and receives, never taking anything for granted. His good-natured spirit is what helps him to win the final contest once inside Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.
