Willy Wonka is extraordinary. He’s a chocolate-making genius who relishes nonsense. He can’t abide ugliness in factories and he likes to make mischief.
This is how Roald describes Willy Wonka, the very first time we see him in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory:
“How clever he looked! How quick and sharp and full of life! He kept making quick jerky little movements with his head, cocking it this way and that, and taking everything in with those bright twinkling eyes. He was like a squirrel in the quickness of his movements, like a quick clever old squirrel from the park”
For the creative writing blog this week you could:
- Write an advert for a new chocolate bar at the chocolate factory
- Write a description of Willy Wonka – you could describe what he wears, how he speaks and how he walks
- Describe a chocolate factory in detail
- Imagine that you have won a golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory and write a diary entry about your experience
