Charlie Bucket
Chalie Bucket from Charlie And The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

Born 1964

Definining moment "Only once a year, on his birthday, did Charlie Bucket ever get to taste a bit of chocolate. The whole family saved up their money for that special occasion, and when the great day came, Charlie was always presented with one small chocolate bar to eat all by himself." 

Why we love Charlie

* He's a sweet-natured, unpretentious lad from a poor working class family - the sort of folk that Dickens would consider the "deserving poor."

* In Dahl's world of brilliantly eccentric crazies, Charlie shines like a beacon of sanity, good sense and normality.

* When compared to the gross greed of spoilt brat, Verruca Salt, anyone can appear in a good light...

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl is published by Puffin.
