Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Chapter 20 Summary

The Great Gum Machine

  • Mr. Wonka leads them over to a fantastic machine, with hundreds of glass tubes, and all sorts of colored liquids running through it, mixing all together. After some major whizzing, out comes a tiny flat strip.
  • Unimpressive.
  • But wait – it's gum (Violet knows it, too). "It's a stick of the most amazing and fabulous and sensational gum in the world!" (20.9)
