6a00e55007a31488340105361b7eab970b-800wi In Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the main character Charlie Bucket's only vice is that he loves chocolate. Charlie is the kind of book character I admired when I grew up — he endured hardships but never became bitter. I thought Charlie was so cool that I started liking cold cabbage soup. And chocolate, of course.

Three Questions I'd Ask Charlie Bucket:

1. What was your first order of business after you won the Chocolate Factory? (I totally would have filled an entire room with Eatable Marshmallow Pillows and jumped around.)

2. Did you get a stomachache from eating that first candy bar so quickly, after nearly starving all winter?

3. Given how the other children left the factory, what would you do if you passed one of them in the street?

Now, if YOU were a kid passing Charlie on the street — what would you ask him?

— Nancy, STACKS Staffer

    I thought “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” was an ingenius pleasure to read. Though I felt sorry for Charlie in the beginning, I felt triumphic for him in the end. I give it 5 stars! Bravo!
