«Dahl possiede il rarissimo dono di far scomparire tutto il mondo che sta intorno al lettore». Goffredo Fofi «Maestro della short story, a lungo considerato solo uno scrittore per ragazzi... iperbolico, beffardo, divertente, la sua massima virtù è dinamica, è la velocità. Ci si accorge di come e quanto la sua consistenza sia un meccanismo perfetto, esplosivo al pari di una bomba». Franco Cordelli, Corriere della Sera «Roald Dahl parteggia sempre per i bambini e ha creato tanti piccoli personaggi con speciali poteri che si vendicano delle prepotenze degli adulti o li puniscono per le loro cattive azioni». Donatella Ziliotto Un bel giorno la Fabbrica di Cioccolato Wonka dirama un avviso: chi troverà i cinque biglietti d’oro nelle tavolette di cioccolato riceverà una provvista di dolciumi sufficiente per tutto il resto della sua vita e potrà visitare l’interno della fabbrica, mentre un solo fortunato tra i cinque ne diventerà padrone. A chi toccherà? Da questo capolavoro di Roald Dahl è stato tratto il film con Johnny Depp, diretto da Tim Burton.
