Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryA novelBy Roald Dahl • About the Author • Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Whales to Norwegian parents. The stories he heard as a child greatly influenced his love of stories and books. Dahl wrote stories for adults and children. Many of his children’s stories come about from the bedtime stories he made up for his daughters. James and the Giant Peach was his first book, followed by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, both of which enjoyed huge success in the United Kingdom and the United States.
Mood and Tone • On page 153, read the introductory material located at the top of the page. • We will read the excerpt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Passage 1: mood • Highlighters out: As we read, highlight words or phrases that stand out to you. • …After reading, what words or phrases did you underline identify the atmosphere or predominant emotion in the work? • In shoulder partners, fill out the graphic organizer on page 153 where you identify the mood of the work.

Movie Version comparison • You will now watch the beginning of Tim burton’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. While viewing, pay special attention to the ways in which a director’s ability to create various moods leads to the shifting tone of the film. Consider these two questions as you watch the film. • How does Burton create mood and tone? What does a director have at his disposal that an author does not? (In addition to dialogue/text, a director can use lighting, costuming, sound color, etc.) • In terms of mood and tone, is the film version similar to the written version? What specific instances contribute to the mood/tone? Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1376Tolhimg
