Book vs Movie- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

charlie

Hutchinson had their city-wide garage sale this weekend. I scored some pretty good stuff considering I didn’t get to get out and really garage sale hardcore. I had both kids with me so we had to kinda hurry from one to the next in the stroller before Chloe decided to colic it up. No way was I lifting that car seat in and out of the car a zillion times- especially since it is still so hot here! What happened to that cool front that was supposed to be rolling in? Oh well, I’m sure it will be here soon enough and then I will be wishing for spring again.

One of the finds I was most happy about was this: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory I have never read it but have seen the first movie about 20 times (the 2nd, Johnny Depp version once). I thought it would be a great movie/book to compare so if anyone has read it and seen the movie- either one, please start this discussion!

    Can’t believe you found that crazy book cover! It looks bizarre, never seen that one before. Check my blog too – http://infloox.wordpress.com – I just posted about Dahl too in celebration of Roald Dahl Day! :)
