Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - by Roald Dahl Processed – August 18 th , 2006 Source www.warez-bb.org (Microsoft Reader Format) Requirement – Acrobat Reader 6 or later This ebook was originally in Microsoft Reader Format and since I thought it isn’t very convenient to read books in that nasty program, I took my time to convert it to PDF format. Now, the 2 nd Roald Dahl book was finally posted on my website! I’m working hard to upload the second series of this book – Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator. Although I haven’t read it yet, I’m sure it will be as interesting as this one. I regret to say that original photos (I’ve seen them in the book I hired from the British Council Library) cannot be put into this EBOOK because I don’t have a scanner. It will add more excitement to this book if the pictures were present. You can look for the complete version of the book on Puffin Books – it’s got numerous funny pictures and costs about 6 pounds according to the price label on the back. I hope you enjoyed reading this book. You can always look for more EBOOKS at my website if you want something useful to read. I’ll try to add more and more books if the connection speed and time allow me. Thank you. Aung Myo Min, August 18 th , 2006.

ROALD DAHL Roald Dahl was born in 1916 in Wales of Norwegian parents. He was educated in England before starting work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. He began writing after a 'monumental bash on the head' sustained as an RAF fighter pilot during the Second World War. Roald Dahl is one of the most successful and well-known of all children's writers. His books, which are read by children the world over, include James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Magic Finger, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, Fantastic Mr Fox, Matilda, The Twits, The BFG and The Witches, winner of the 1983 Whitbread Award. Roald Dahl died in 1990 at the age of seventy-four. Roald Dahl found Charlie and the Chocolate Factory one of the most difficult books to write. His first draft of the story included fifteen horrible children. His nephew Nicholas read it and said it was rotten and boring, so Dahl realized he needed to rewrite it! The idea for Charlie came from Roald Dahl’s schooldays, when he and other classmates were occasionally asked by Cadbury’s to test newly invented chocolate bars. He used to dream of inventing his own famous chocolate bar that would win the praise of Mr Cadbury himself. This was Dahl’s motto that he lived by: My candle burns at both ends It will not last the night But ah my foes and oh my friends It gives a lovely light For a closer look at the world of Roald Dahl, visit the website at – www.roalddahl.com
