CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY Lost Chapter Features More Sweet Surprises
Half a century after the original publication of Roald Dahl's classic children's story, an unused chapter from CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY has been released.
According to The Star, this chapter from a draft of the book from 1961 features not only a "Vanilla Fudge Room," with a "colosal jagged mountain" of fudge, but more characters as well. New children that are introduced in this fifth chapter, and it is revealed that originally, Charlie's mother- not grandfather- accompanied him into the factory.
This new section from CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY was published on Saturday in the Guardian with permission of Roal Dahl Nominee Ltd.
CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY has inspired two movies, a West End musical, and sold millions of copies.
