Charlie’s family was very poor and consisted of seven people; 4 grandparents; Grandpa Joe, Grandma Josephine, Grandpa George, Grandma Georgina; Charlie’s mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. Bucket; and little Charlie. One day, in the newspaper, there is an article that says Mr. Willy Wonka, the owner of the Willa Wonka Chocolate Factory, says that he sent out 5 regular wrapped chocolate bars with golden tickets inside. And that whichever 5 lucky children find the tickets, they get a special tour of the factory. Charlie’s family could not afford to buy lots of chocolate bars to try and find one of the golden tickets, but Charlie’s birthday was coming up, and his only present was a 25-cent chocolate bar, saved up by the whole family. He does not get it, but then his Grandpa Joe gives him pocket money to buy another. Still no luck. But the next day, he finds a dollar bill in the snow. He goes and buys a bar of chocolate. No luck. Then, the fat shopkeeper (yes, I said fat.) gives Charlie change and Charlie buys another. He finds the golden ticket! Now, you will have to find out the rest for yourself (and no, don’t ask me).
