Wooooohoooo another wishlist book checked off!
This book is #35 on the BBC's top 100 of all time list, so it's one I'll be reading for that list.

Thanks Bree!!!

I started and finished this cute book yesterday. Dahl writes with so much imagination. This book is a fantastic piece of children's literature, you can't help but smile as you read it. I really enjoyed the songs that the Oompa Loompas sung after each of the 'bad' children had gone. Specifically, the one that tells you to replace your television set with a bookcase!
Dahl always seems to write into his books traits that he finds really undesirable and sets to tell the reader why they are bad. In this case, the traits were greed, gluttony, rudeness, and no imagination (from watching too much television). Be wary little kiddies! You don't want to become like these kids!
I remember from the movie (the original one) that Charlie and his grandfather go off to a room with bubbles where they are carried to the top of the room and need to start burping to get back to the ground. This room was described in the book but Charlie and his grandfather never venture into it. I guess it was just the director's choice to make the movie longer or to show that Charlie and his grandfather weren't perfect.

Anyways, this was a fabulous book. One of my best reads of the year.

Dahl simply has a most wonderful imagination. He has taken some of the most undesirable traits and has had a field day exploring what might happen. I would have loved a visit to his factory. I have not seen the movie and now wish to see it as the Oompah Loompahs songs would be worth watching
