    "Love it"

    Loved this book as a kid, loved the film and loved this audiobook as an adult. I've actuality listened to it twice, once with my kids and once again on my own..!

    Can't beat a bit of Dahl.

    "From Movie To Audio(book)"

    I had watched the movie Charlie And Chocolate Factory a few years back and I enjoyed it. Then I found another Roald Dahl's work on Audible, I just happily spent my credit on it. Now I downloaded it for my children to introduce them the beauty of audiobook.
