Eggs Great cover 🍫 2mo
IndoorDame @Eggs I don‘t have a copy anymore but I had to go down to Internet rabbit hole searching for the cover I remember from childhood cause I seriously detest the movie tie in cover for this one 2mo
fredamans Great minds, though I am showing the movie version today with Gene Wilder. 2mo

“So please, oh PLEASE, we beg, we pray, Go throw your TV set away, And in its place you can install, A lovely bookshelf on the wall.” — Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

I love my 11 year old granddaughter's bookshelf! She is a reader and a geek of the best kind! She is just like her Mama, @MothAndMoons

The little miss and I have finished Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I‘m especially fond of the Oompa-Loompa‘s take on the TV. 😊

#ThisRemindsMeOf tickets of any kind will always remind me of this favorite. I seem to not be able to locate a ticket emoji to use in my post😒

One of my sons - two week Holiday break from school....

MinDea I love that movie! Surprisingly I have never read that book! 5y
Anna40 My son loves it too! 5y
CatLass007 My mom always said that Charlie looks like my little brother when he was that age. He does. But now he‘s 51 and a jerk. But he still my little brother so nobody else better say that! 5y
mgallo1968 My son‘s favorite spot is in his bed. It drives me crazy. The other day I told him to get out out of the hole he has made in his bed-haha. I told him he reminded me of the grandparents in the movie just sitting in their bed! 5y

I started this yesterday, and I'm loving the illustrations in this Danish translation 👌


2BR02B Grandpa Joe is such an ass. He lays around in bed like an invalid, letting Mrs. Bucket wait on him hand and foot, until a golden ticket shows up and he conveniently recovers enough to dance around. He didn't deserve a trip to the chocolate factory. 5y
AlaMich @2BR02B Didn't all the grandparents lay around in bed being waited on hand and foot? 5y
2BR02B @AlaMich yes, but for all were know they were legitimately disabled whereas GJ was clearly a faker. 5y

AlaMich @2BR02B 😂😂 5y
Kalalalatja @2BR02B I hadn't thought about it, but know you mention it, Granpa Joe was a big cheat! But in general, all the grandparents felt a little like cheaters. I mean, you live seven people in a small house, only one of you have a job, and you are starving. At least, they could have let Mrs. Bucket go to work. 5y

A little surprise I found on the back of my Recycle Book Store bookmark! I may have involuntarily squeed when I saw it 🤗

Also part of my #bookmail: the Penguin Classics Deluxe edition of Charlie. I had to do it for the awesome cover!!

TobeyTheScavengerMonk Why in the world do I not already own this? 6y
AlaMich @TobeyTheScavengerMonk You better get on that! 😉 6y

Road trip = audiobook. Our first selection is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Love all the names in the book. Charlie bucket, Augustus gloop, veruca salt.

It's time for#bookriot #riotgrams again... And the topic is #favoritevillain. Who is my favourite villain? I'll have to duck rotten tomatoes if I say Gilbert Blythe, won't I? Ok, ok! Willy Wonka, then.

Ok it sure is #bestcharactername but even the worst name might sound good if you give it a shot 😁 All right, I am kidding #littens, I just wanted to add a funny name to the mix! Btw have you ever met someone named Veruca?! 😄

I-read-and-eat Never have. But I came across it in a Latin texts a while ago and finaly found out it means 'wart'. Never knew that. What an awfull name 😁 6y
LeahBergen A verruca is a wart! 😂😂 6y
Alma @I-read-and-eat @LeahBergen That's disgusting!! I have always thought it meant something like that, in french we say "verrue" so there it is!!! ? Poor little girl hhhh but well she was a spoiled brat, Roald Dahl chose wisely ?? 6y
