Title: The Chocolate Touch
This story is about John Midas who loves candy. In fact he would rather eat candy than anything else. One day he comes upon a magic chocolate. After he consumes it, everything he eats turns into chocolate - even his orange juice! Suddenly he longs for a cool glass of water, but it is not to be. Can you ever have too much chocolate?
Originally published in 1952, this book holds up remarkably well for a new generation. However, your kids may wonder why John eats boiled candy and candied lemon slices, instead of a Hershey bar.
Great for kids starting chapter books. At only 122 pages, with big type and pictures every six to seven pages, this book is easily manageable, and fun.
A sweet read (oh come on ... I had to type it!)
