The Chocolate Factory Ghost

by David O’Connell

Roald Dahl would surely approve of this exciting story, which rivals Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the importance it places on delicious sweets! Archie is astonished to learn that he’s heir to Archibald McBudge of Honeystone Hall, owner of McBudge’s Fudge and Confectionary Company.

Archie loves the hall, which seems to be home to all sorts of strange creatures, and he loves the fudge factory too.  There’s just one problem: no-one knows the secret ingredient that makes McBudge Fudge so delicious, and without it the factory will close. Can Archie solve the clues left by his uncle, and can he avoid his revolting relatives the Puddingham-Pyes too?

With nods to Harry Potter too, it’s a tasty mix of fantasy, adventure, comedy and detection which will definitely have readers coming back for more.

The Chocolate Factory Ghost has a lot of fantasy things in the book. I don’t want to spoil it, but I loved the mystery with the sweets and chocolate. I enjoyed the detailed pictures and how they showed everything. LS

When I started this book i was excited to start Spellbinding books and felt like it would encourage me to start reading more. I would recommended this to other people that are doing this challenge.

I really adored this book. because I love any thing that includes sweets, it had a great plot and was full of adventure. My favourite character was Fliss. if she was real I would love to be her friend, , this is because of her bubbly and brilliant characteristics. I liked the bit where they find the secret ingredient and talked to the dragon that his ancestor looked after many years ago. I think that Archie is a very lucky boy and is an amazingly clever child indeed ,if I inherited all those things I wold throw a party every… Read more »

I love this book! I would recommend it to people who like ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. David O’Connnell is a brilliant author and knows when to make the story funny and when to make it serious! I like how it is like real life; with happy times and disappointments. My favourite character is Fliss because she is thoughtful but brave. She was very adventurous. The plot was fantastic and the end was unexpected! I loved it when they found the secret ingredient because I could imagin what it looked like. Katie Smith

Since I’ve finished this book, I wish that the author of the book had came up with a better name for the book as it only starts to mention the ghost in the last several pages and on the front cover it gives away who the ghost is. Apart from that, I really enjoyed this book as it is very adventurous and has great description which built an image in your head of what it would have been like and felt like. I would highly recommend this book to other readers that are thinking about what to read as I… Read more »

This book is awesome because it is full of sweets! Archie is the luckiest person in the whole world.. Fliss is my favourite character because she has girl power and is smart. The idea of the Macabre Creepy scale rating is really clever. David O’Connell has made the quest to find the secret ingredient interesting and exciting to read. His book is sparking with imagination. The best part was when it all finally came together in the end and they went to pookiecrag castle; found the ‘dod’ from the dragons; and beat Mrs Puddingham-pie. The name Mcbudge will carry on… Read more »

I found this book very entertaining,I thought it was very well written,I would recommend this book to people who like comedy and adventure,the book also has lots of mystery in it.The characters are very involved.I think this book has one down side the reason is because Archie [one of the characters] his dad is supposedly dead and it has no back story as to why he had died so I think David O’Connell could have put some of the characters past.But other than that I really like this book so I recommend that you should read it.

This book was fantasstic. At first, i thought this book wasn’t really original (because of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory). But then i started to want to read all the way to the end because I began to enjoy it a little more. I would really recommend this book to people who love gripping andvenure. My favourite part of the book was the unexpeted twist at the very end. Sophie

I enjoyed reading this book. However, I think that the title of the book ( The Chocolate Factory Ghost) shouldn’t really be the title as it doesn’t fit with the story because it doesn’t talk about the ghost till the last several pages. Besides that I enjoyed the book because it makes you want to read on.
