John Midas loves chocolate. One day he finds a coin that has his initials on it. First he decides to keep the coin but then he decides to spend it on chocolate. So he goes to look for a candy shop and he finds one. He buys chocolate and goes home. When he eats it everything he touches with his mouth turns to chocolate! When he plays his trumpet, the tip turns to chocolate so he can't play. When he kisses his mom?

I like this book because I like chocolate. My favorite part of the story is when John puts the glove to his mouth and it turns to chocolate. I also like it because it is a cool story. It's funny too. My mom would like it because she loves chocolate, too.

I would recommend The Chocolate Touch to anyone who likes funny stories.
