The main characters so far in chapters (1-3) is Charlie Bucket, Mr. and Mrs. Bucket, and Charlie's four elderly grandparents. In this book Charlies parents are Mr. and Mrs. Bucket and his grandparents are the parents of Mr. and Mrs. Bucket which they have a son named Charlie. These characters are important because it opens up to the reader that maybe Charlie might go to the chocolate factory according to the book title. In the book so far Charlie is a thoughtful, grateful, boy whose parents are hardworking, dedicated, loving people, and Charlie's four elderly grandparents are delicate and weak. To prove my claim about Charlies parents according to the chapter 1 it states," He worked in a toothpaste factory,where he sat all day long at a bench and screwed the caps on to the tops of the tubes of toothpastes after the tubes where filled." This proves that Charlie's dad wants to keep moving forward with his family. Another thing to prove my claim about Charlie is according to chapter 1 it states," Only once a year, on his birthday, did charlie ever get to taste a bit of chocolate." This shows that he is grateful and thoughtful to have a special present even though his dad would rather use it for their expenses. Another few characters in this book are charlie's four elderly grandparents who enjoy telling charlie stories about the chocolate factory and how much they love him. So far in chapters (1-3) the characters have not changed.
