That's an important distinction. Roald Dahl's screenplay for Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory at least how it's presented in the film is a very loose adaptation of his book.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is much more faithful to the source material, benefits from excellent visual effects, has some very funny quirky humour, and has some really good songs.
