"Welcome, my little friends! Welcome to the factory!”

For Charlie Bucket, life isn’t very easy. He and his mother and father live in a very small house with Charlie’s four grandparents who all share one bed between them. There isn’t much to eat besides cabbage soup and not even very much of that. What Charlie really longs for, is chocolate and not just any chocolate but Willy Wonka’s chocolate, made in the chocolate factory Charlie can almost see from his house.

Mr Wonka is a mystery, a conundrum, one day he was there and the next day he suddenly vanished and nobody has been into his factory or cast eyes upon him ever since. Now Mr Wonka has offered five lucky children the chance to step inside the factory, five Golden Tickets hidden inside five bars of chocolate. All Charlie needs is one tiny, near-impossible stroke of luck.

Waterstones gives you a golden ticket to step inside the magical world of Willy Wonka. Join gum-chewing Violet Beauregarde, television obsessed Mike Teavee, greedy Augustus Gloop, spoiled Veruca Salt and Charlie himself of course as they sample the delights of the chocolate-maker’s world.

Wonders await you on the Wonka tour; chocolate fountains, Oompa Loompas, lickable wallpaper and much, much more.

Now the magic of Roald Dahl is brought to life in these new illustrated paperback editions from the imagination of Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl’s own favourite illustrator. With brand new, bold cover designs and Blake’s quintessential pen and ink drawings these are classic editions for every generation to enjoy.

Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and many more brilliant stories. He remains the world's number one storyteller.

Quentin Blake has illustrated more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl’s favourite illustrator. In 1980 he won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. In 1999 he became the first ever Children’s Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration.

“Great children's book”

This is pretty much as close as you get to a perfect children's book. That's not to say adults won't love it too! Roald Dahl takes us to a place I'm sure many of us dream of - a chocolate factory!... More
