Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Appearances Quotes
How we cite our quotes: (Chapter.Paragraph)
The picture showed a nine-year-old boy who was so enormously fat he looked as thought he had been blown up with a powerful pump. (6.1)
This describes, of course, Augustus Gloop. From the looks of him, he's quite the glutton. And we'll find out later that this turns out to be true.
And every day, Charlie Bucket grew thinner and thinner. His face became frighteningly white and pinched. The skin was drawn so tightly over the cheeks that you could see the shapes of the bones underneath. It seemed doubtful whether he could go on much longer like this without becoming dangerously ill. (6.14)
Check out this description of Charlie, and compare it to the description of Augustus that we got earlier in the chapter. Quite the contrast, right?
