Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Family Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Chapter.Paragraph)

Quote #4

"Perfectly true!" cried Grandma Josephine. "And he sends them to all the four corners of the earth. Isn't that so, Grandpa Joe?" (2.18)

Here we see the grandparents teaming up to tell Charlie about the chocolate factory. They're clearly thrilled that they're getting a chance to share a nice moment with their grandson.

Quote #5

"We'll share it. I want everybody to taste it." (7.26)

No wonder his parents and grandparents love him so much. Charlie, like them, wants the best for everyone. He's even willing to share his only birthday present with all of them. Shmoop can't guarantee that if we were in the same place, we wouldn't gobble that chocolate bar right up.

Quote #6

All the children, except Charlie, had both their mothers and fathers with them. (13.5)

Charlie's family is not your typical family. After all, both sets of his grandparents live in the house with him and his parents. So it makes sense that when he gets to the factory, he'll stand out because he's the only kid with just a grandparent by his side. And while we're on that subject, why do you think he takes Grandpa Joe, and not Mr. and Mrs. Bucket?
