Novel Study

Chapter 14
Mr. Willy Wonka
  • Mr. Willy Wonka is quite a sight. Beautiful clothes (including a purple tail coat and a top hat – curious!) and bright, twinkling eyes.
  • After jerking around a bit, he finally breaks into a dance and welcomes everyone there, asking the children to introduce themselves to him.
  • One by one, they do just that. And even the chatty Violet can't get a word in edgewise – Willy Wonka is shaking everyone's hands as hard and fast as he can and talking their ears off – even asking questions without giving time for an answer. Quite an exhausting man.
  • All the children and their parents walk into the factory, which is kept warm for the mysterious workers. They find themselves in a long, beautiful corridor, and smell the most amazing smell on earth.
  • Willy Wonka rushes all fourteen of them along, turning left and right and left and right (and so on – Roald Dahl doesn't spare us any directions), and finally downward, toward the underground rooms. There's not enough space above ground for all his rooms.
  • They stop in front of a room that says "The Chocolate Room"

Chapter 15
The Chocolate Room
  • The Chocolate Room is beloved by Willy Wonka: it's the heart of his factory and it's beautiful, he says.
  • And boy, is he right. In the room, there's a beautiful valley with a river running through it. Along the river, there is a marvelous waterfall, with dozens of glass pipes going into the river. And there are bushes and trees and flowers and – wait for it – it's all edible.
  • Yep, you can eat every last drop of The Chocolate Room, from the river (made entirely of chocolate) to the grass (made of sugar). We're getting a sugar high just thinking about it.
  • Not surprisingly, all of the children (and adults!) start eating everything in sight. And it's as delicious as it is beautiful.
  • Suddenly, Veruca starts screaming and pointing toward a little man in the distance. Everyone looks and realizes that they are tiny men with long hair, and they are all laughing at the children.
  • What on earth are these creatures? "They're Oompa-Loompas," explains Mr. Wonka
