Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake I don't know how many times I've read this book, but it is a wonderful little story, no matter how you look at it. I remember getting an original copy as a gift, with the Fieffer-esque illustrations, as a youngster. I actually can say I read it before I saw the original movie, and I think it is one of the few books that have a character that was actually improved by the transition to film, namely Gene Wilder's portrayal of Willy Wonka. If you haven't read this one, push the rock off your head and get a copy!
