His most successful children's books are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Boy, Going Solo, Someone Like You, The Hitch-Hiker and Mr Botibol. Roald Dahl is a brilliant storyteller.

Setting: The story is enacted in the Mr. Willy Wonka’s factory and in the house of the Buckets.
Charlie Bucket is a little boy, who comes from an extremely poor family. He lives with his parents and four grandparents in a small, single-roomed house. His father is only person in family, who has a job. After loosing it, the family is practically starving to death. Charlie's greatest love in his life is chocolate. He receives a bar once a year, on his birthday. Once, Willy Wonka, the greatest manufacturer of chocolate in the world, owner of the largest and the most exciting chocolate factory in the whole universe, decided to allow 5 children to visit his factory.
I, Willy Wonka, have decided to allow five children — just five, mind you, and no more — to visit my factory this year. These lucky five will be shown around personally by me, and they will be allowed to see all the secrets and the magic of my factory. Then, at the end of the tour, as a special present, all of them will be given enough chocolates and sweets to last them for the rest of their lives! So watch out for the Golden Tickets! Five Golden Tickets have been printed on golden paper, and these five Golden Tickets have been hidden underneath the ordinary wrapping paper of five ordinary bars of chocolate. These five chocolate bars may be anywhere — in any shop in any street in any town in any country in the world — upon any counter where Wonka's Sweets are sold. And the five lucky finders of these five Golden Tickets are the only ones who will be allowed to visit my factory and see what it's like now inside! Good luck to you all, and happy hunting! (Signed Willy Wonka.)
