Summary:

Penguin presents a brand new recording of Roald Dahl's classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, read by the actor Douglas Hodge, who plays Willy Wonka in the hit musical adaptation of the book.

Charlie Bucket desperately wants to eat more than cabbage soup every day. But even more than that, he longs to see Wonka's enormous chocolate factory!

Now Mr Willy Wonka, the most wondrous inventor in the world, has hidden golden tickets inside his delicious creamy chocolate bars. Only five winners can go through those great iron gates; will one of them be Charlie?

Douglas Hodge is a multi-award-winning English actor, with Olivier and Tony awards for his performance in La Cage aux Folles, and nominations for his leading roles in Cyrano de Bergerac, Guys and Dolls and Inadmissible Evidence. In 2013 he is playing the role of Willy Wonka in Sam Mendes' musical of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! inspired by the revolting Twits.

    I loved it! My favorite part was when all of the children got kicked out of the chocolate factory!

    I really liked this book. I wish you could write more of these fantastic stories. I am only 8 right now, but when I grow up, I want to be a great author, just like Roald Dahl.

    A fun book to listen to and the narrator does a great job especially with Mr Willy Wonka.
