Reviews for Charlie y la Fabrica De Chocolate / Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Booklist Reviews 2006 July #1
Gr. 5-8. Dahl's popular story about five lucky children who win a ticket to enor Wonka's mysterious chocolate factory is reproduced in a delightful Spanish rendition that maintains the story's excitement, whimsy, and message. Despite the peninsular Spanish pronouns and conjugations (e.g., os imaginais, escuchad), young Spanish speakers from the Americas will celebrate Charlie Bucket's Billete Dorado (Golden Ticket) and his trip into an unforgettable world.
