Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Chapter 13 Summary

The Big Day Arrives

  • On a cold but sunny day, there is chaos outside Wonka's Factory. All of the winning children are there with their parents, except Charlie who is there with Grandpa Joe.
  • The crowd starts shouting to see which of the children they can recognize. One by one, they see them all: Violet Beauregarde, Augustus Gloop, Mike Teavee, Veruca Salt, and Charlie (who, they notice, isn't wearing a jacket on this cold day).
  • At ten o'clock on the dot, the iron gates begin to open, and out walks Mr. Willy Wonka.
