Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tops Dahl list - BBC NewsA lost chapter of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, deemed too wild, subversive and insufficiently moral for the tender minds of British children almost 50 years ago, has been published for the first time. The chapter, in Saturday's Guardian Review, with new illustrations by Sir Quentin Blake , was found among Dahl's papers after his death. It was chapter five in one of many early drafts of the book, one of the best-loved children's books, but was cut from the version first published in the US in and in the UK in In the chapter Charlie Bucket — accompanied by his mother, not his sprightly grandfather — and the other children are led into the Vanilla Fudge Room, where they face the sinister prospect of the Pounding and Cutting Room. The chapter reveals the original larger cast of characters, and their fates, as well as the original names of some of those who survived into later drafts. Dahl originally intended to send Charlie into the chocolate factory with eight other children, but the number was slimmed down to four.
