Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Roald Dahl - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory:

Finding a sweet surprise, in a sweet surprise, that leads to the ultimate sweet surprise.

My favorite Roald Dahl quote from the book:

"However small the chance might be of striking lucky, the chance was there."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Did you know candy espionage was a thing?

Does poverty cause discipline?

My review of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory:

Brush your teeth after reading.

Candy factories should really be like the Wonka factory.

Everyone should be able to get a chocolate bar.
