An early draft of Roald Dahl's 1964 children's book 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' has been published after 50 years, which has revealed many secrets relating to the story.


There was an unused chapter in which Charlie's Chocolate Boy takes the reader to the Vanilla Fudge Room in Willy Wonka's factory and it also included two new children and refers to two others who do not feature in the version published in 1964, the BBC reported.

The draft chapter has now been published in full in The Guardian, which revealed there were as many as 10 golden tickets, and children, in the earlier versions. It also contains references to children named Augustus Pottle and Miranda Grope and has Charlie accompanied by his mother, rather than his Grandpa Joe.

According to Lucy Mangan, author of Inside Charlie's Chocolate Factory, Dahl wrote five drafts of his story, out of which four survived.

Dahl's classic children's novel marks its 50th anniversary in October.
