This ebook was originally in Microsoft Reader Format and since I thought it isn’t very convenient to read books in that nasty program, I took my time to convert it to PDF format. Now, the 2nd Roald Dahl book was finally posted on my website! I’m working hard to upload the second series of this book – Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator. Although I haven’t read it yet, I’m sure it will be as interesting as this one.
I regret to say that original photos (I’ve seen them in the book I hired from the British Council Library) cannot be put into this EBOOK because I don’t have a scanner. It will add more excitement to this book if the pictures were present. You can look for the complete version of the book on Puffin Books – it’s got numerous funny pictures and costs about 6 pounds according to the price label on the back.
I hope you enjoyed reading this book. You can always look for more EBOOKS at my website if you want something useful to read. I’ll try to add more and more books if the connection speed and time allow me. Thank you.

Roald Dahl was born in 1916 in Wales of Norwegian parents. He was educated in England before starting work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. He began writing after a 'monumental bash on the head' sustained as an RAF fighter pilot during the Second World War. Roald Dahl is one of the most successful and well-known of all children's writers. His books, which are read by children the world over, include James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Magic Finger, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, Fantastic Mr Fox, Matilda, The Twits, The BFG and The Witches, winner of the 1983 Whitbread Award. Roald Dahl died in 1990 at the age of seventy-four.
Roald Dahl found Charlie and the Chocolate Factory one of the most difficult books to write. His first draft of the story included fifteen horrible children. His nephew Nicholas read it and said it was rotten and boring, so Dahl realized he needed to rewrite it! The idea for Charlie came from Roald Dahl’s schooldays, when he and other classmates were occasionally asked by Cadbury’s to test newly invented chocolate bars. He used to dream of inventing his own famous chocolate bar that would win the praise of Mr Cadbury himself.
This was Dahl’s motto that he lived by:
My candle burns at both ends
It will not last the night
But ah my foes and oh my friends
It gives a lovely light

These two very old people are the father and mother of Mr Bucket. Their names are Grandpa Joe and Grandma Josephine.
And these two very old people are the father and mother of Mrs Bucket. Their names are Grandpa George and Grandma Georgina.
This is Mr Bucket. This is Mrs Bucket.
Mr and Mrs Bucket have a small boy whose name is Charlie.
This is Charlie.
How d'you do? And how d'you do? And how d'you do again? He is pleased to meet you.
The whole of this family — the six grown-ups (count them) and little Charlie Bucket — live together in a small wooden house on the edge of a great town. The house wasn't nearly large enough for so many people, and life was extremely uncomfortable for them all. There were only two rooms in the place altogether, and there was only one bed....
