Just as Augustus is punished as a result of his greed, Violet is punished as a result of her excessive gum chewing. The punishments that befall the children are specific to their personalities. In order to cure Violet, who has turned into a giant blueberry, Mr. Wonka sends her to be juiced. This solution is both vague and ominous, and it scares Charlie, who asks Mr. Wonka if she will be all right. Charlie has no particular reason to care about Violet—she is a nasty and rotten child—but he is a kind boy and so he does. None of the other children demonstrate the capacity to care about others. Charlie is quickly becoming the clear favorite of Mr. Wonka.
