The main character is Charlie. He is a pre-teen boy. He helped Mr.Wonka many times. He is a very good person. I also think that he is going to be a good owner of the chocolate factory.
Charlie did not cause any of the problems that happened in the book, Mr.Wonka did. When Mr.Wonka went too high in the glass elevator, Charlie helped him press the right buttons in the elevator to come back down. Charlie did a lot of good things in the book and did a lot of saving.
Mr.Wonka also gave three of Charlie's grandparents too many Wonkavite pills that make people younger. The grandparents became 1 and 2 years old, and one grandmother was not even born yet and ended up minus land. Charlie helped to find her and bring her back. He also kept aliens from attacking a spacecraft.
I think that this is a very good book. It is strange, weird, and very interesting. It has some words that my dad could not even pronounce. I hope other kids will read it.
In short, these three are the most tedious, spiteful, unredeemable characters I've come across in children's literature and I hoped that they would be eaten by the Knids or the Gnoolies or even the Oompa-Loompas as I read this book. As it is, they (unlike the awful kids in the Chocolate Factory) learn no lessons and persist in their curmudgeonly parasitism from the first page to the last. Their presence throughout the novel rendered it a chore, rather than a joy, to read.
