Comprehension Questions

1. Why did Wonka have to send his workers home?

2. Imagine standing outside the Wonka factory late at night. Through the frosted window, you see the strange, short shadows scampering about. If you could sneak into the factory just then, would you want to?

Writer's Craft: Timing. Just before Mr. Bucket rushes in with the headline that screams "WONKA'S FACTORY TO BE OPENED", what is everyone talking about? Why, oddly enough, the mysteries of Wonka's closed factory! Dahl doesn't give them time to change the subject to Charlie's school problems or stomachaches so they can babble for twenty more pages before Mr. Bucket shows up. That's what would probably happen in real life. This is a story, so right after they talk about the factory, BAM! in crashes Mr. Bucket. Right when Dahl has your attention with the factory mysteries, he surprises you with good news––you're going to see those mysteries after all. That's good timing.
