"Charlie earned for its author a cult following among child readers Dahl has been called a literary genius; his books have been considered modern fairy tales" (Silvey, 186). "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is already a great classic work [and] one of the most enduring post-war children’s books Dahl is undeniably special" (Connolly, 102).
