"But I want an Oompa-Loompa!" screamed Veruca.
Veruca's so greedy, she actually wants to keep real people as pets. Check out how her parents give in to her greediness, too. They promise they'll get her an Oompa-Loompa, never stopping to think that that might not be possible, or even right.

"Augustus Gloop! Augustus Gloop!
Hmm. The Oompa-Loompas are making it seem as if they made Augustus fall into the river and get sucked up the pipe as punishment for his greed and gluttony. But is that really what happened? Take a closer look at Chapter 17 to find out.

"They're not for sale," Mr. Wonka answered. "She can't have one."
Veruca, Veruca, Veruca. Will you ever learn? She's so greedy she can't even understand that she simply can't have what she wants. The Oompa-Loompas, after all, are people – they're not for sale.
