  3. I love this story, the characters are fantastic. Movie is good as well and i just loved it.

  4. This is another classic of Roald Dahl who brings out the story fromthe book. Great for reading aloud to children.

  5. I love this story, the characters are fantastic and its just a really sweet little story, the movie isnt too bad either!

  6. Another classic Dahl delight! – It’s great to see how these classic
    books survive through time as kids favourites. Have you noticed that
    when the peach rolls off the tree, it rolls through a “famous chocolate
    factory”… So funny.
    Also – the movie is quite well done, but maybe a bit scary for kids of younger ages!
