In this activity, students will examine the author’s attitude and make inferences based on details from the text.
The first example is when Grandpa Joe says, "That ticket'll go to some nasty little beast who doesn't deserve it!" This demonstrates the author’s point of view on spoiled and selfish children.
The second example is when the oompa-loompas sing, "Augustus Gloop! Augustus Gloop! The great big greedy nincompoop!" Through the song of the oompa-loompas, the author shares his opinion of greedy children.
The last example is when Willie Wonka says, "So I have to have a child. I want a good sensible loving child, one to whom I can tell all my most precious candy-making secrets - while I'm still alive." The author believes in rewarding the "good" children by giving Charlie the factory.
