Favourite Fictional Character is a weekly meme by the blog : http://wordsmithonia.blogspot.com/. It's where we discuss our favourite fictional characters from books, tv, movies.
Willy Wonka from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory is this week's pick. The Gene Wilder version not the creepy Johnny Depp version. I loved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - I believe it was the first if not one of the first chapter books I ever read and I was mesmerised by the idea of winning tickets to a tour of a chocolate factory and then being gifted the entire factory.
Willy Wonka was eccentric and funny and delightfull in the way he dealt with the children and was so nonchalant about the different mishaps which befall the children one by one.
He had all the joy of a child himself and he owned a chocolate factory.
