Speaker: This is a story of an ordinary little boy, named Charlie Bucket. He was not faster or stronger or more clever, than other children. His family was not rich or powerful or well-connected. In fact, they barely had enough to eat. Charlie Bucket was the luckiest boy in the entire world. He just didn’t know it yet.
Charlie’s dad: Evening, Buckets!
Grandparents: Evening!
Charlie: Hi, dad!
Charlie’s mother: Soup’s almost ready, darling. Don’t suppose there’s anything extra to put in, love? Oh, well. Nothing goes better with cabbage than cabbage.
