    A 'wild and subversive' chapter that was cut from US and UK versions of the children's book in the 60s, has finally been published. Author Roald Dahl had included a fudge 'pounding and cutting' room and kids saying 'Nuts to you' in the chapter.

    'A lost chapter of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, deemed too wild, subversive and insufficiently moral for the tender minds of British children almost 50 years ago, has been published for the first time.'

    'The chapter, in Saturday's Guardian Review, with new illustrations by Sir Quentin Blake, was found among Dahl's papers after his death. It was chapter five in one of many early drafts of the book, one of the best-loved children's books, but was cut from the version first published in the US in 1964 and in the UK in 1967.'

    That's funny. I love the book and movie, both the Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp versions. I hope they update the book with the new chapter in it.
