Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
When my kids were much shorter we would go camping and I would read Roald Dahl books to them. Now they are in their mid 20s and they still want me to go camping with them and to read Roald Dahl books to them. Dahl's books are dark and subversive and absolutely wonderful. Children's books that have much to recommend for adults, at least dark and subversive adults. Read them all. Roald Dahl hated Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka. It's hard to say what a dead man would have liked but I think Burton and Depp's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory would have been much more to Roald Dahl's liking. It certainly was to mine.
