Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Chapter 29

By Roald Dahl

Chapter 29

The Other Children Go Home

  • Looking down, they see all the other children leaving the factory.
  • They aren't going home empty handed, though: waiting for each of them was the promised lifetime supply of sweets, by the truckload.
  • All the children look a little different: Augustus is thin, Violet is purple, Veruca is covered in garbage, and Mike Teavee is tall and skinnier than ever.
  • As always, Willy Wonka is pretty optimistic about everyone's state, but he quickly presses another button on the elevator – he has something important to discuss with Charlie.
