Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory


by Roald Dahl

Augustus Gloop Timeline and Summary

  • Augustus, that lucky duck, is the first kid to find a Golden Ticket. He eats so much chocolate, it was only a matter of time.
  • Once they've all arrived at the factory, he's the first person to ask Mr. Wonka about his mysterious workers.
  • But once they find out about the Oompa-Loompas, Augustus is too busy sneaking off to the chocolate river to hear their whole story.
  • As expected, Augustus just can't help himself, and drinks from the chocolate river.
  • He falls in – big surprise – and calls for help.
  • It's too late. Augustus gets sucked up the big glass pipe, where he promptly gets stuck.
  • Then, something gives and Augustus gets sucked all the way up the pipe, disappearing entirely until he reemerges in Chapter 29, having been squeezed thin by the pipe.
