  • In the town itself, actually within sight of the house in which Charlie lived, there was an ENORMOUS CHOCOLATE FACTORY! Just imagine that! And it wasn’t simply an ordinary enormous chocolate factory, either. It was the largest and most famous in the whole world! It was WONKA’S FACTORY, owned by a man classed Mr Willy Wonka, the greatest inventor and maker of chocolates that there has ever been. And what a tremendous, marvellous place it was! It had huge iron gates leading into it, and a high and strange whizzing sounds coming from deep inside it. And out the walls , for a half a mile around in every direction, the air was scented with the heavy rich smell of melting chocolate!

  • But Augustus was deaf to everything except the call of his enormous stomach. He was now lying full length on the ground with his head far out over the river, lapping up the chocolate like a dog. “Augustus!” shouted Mrs Gloop. “You’ll be giving that nasty cold of yours to about a million people all over the country!” Be careful, Augustus!” shouted Mr Gloop. “You’re leaning too far out!” Mr Gloop was absolutely right. For suddenly there was a shriek, and then a splash, and into the river went Augustus Gloop, and in one second he had disappeared under the brown surface. “Save him!” screamed Mrs Gloop, going white in the face and waving her umbrella about. He’ll drown! He can’t swim a yard! Save him! Save him! ... “There he goes!” sombody shouted, pointing upwards. And sure enough, because the pipe was made of glass, Augustus Gloop could be clearly seen shooting up inside it, head first, like a torpedo.
