John Midas loved chocolate so much that he found a coin and he bought a chocolate. There was only one chocolate and that chocolate was a magic one. He ate it and after that everything that he touched with his mouth turned to chocolate. His pencil turned to chocolate and his trumpet turned to chocolate. He even ate his gloves because they turned into chocolate. Will he ever get rid of this chocolate touch? Read this book to find out!
I liked this book because it was a good story. My favorite part was when John went to the doctor and he broke the doctor's spoon. I like this part because it was funny. I would like to have the chocolate touch too, even though all that stuff happened. I'd keep it and I wouldn't tell anybody!
I recommend that you read this book because it makes you think. I like this about the book. Fifth grade and up should read it.
