The Chocolate Touch

Written by Patrick Skene • Illustrated by Margot Apple

John had a bad habit of eating chocolate. John ate too much candy. John?s favorite candy was chocolate. John had to go see Dr. Cranium. John had to take a tonic. When John put something in his mouth, like his toothpaste, breakfast, his glove, water, his instrument or his lunch, they all turned into chocolate. John kissed his mother and she turned to chocolate. You will have to read the story to see if she ever gets back to normal.

I liked the funny part when his mom turned to chocolate. Another humorous part was when the trumpet turned to chocolate because of the funny sound the trumpet made. Another part that I liked was the part when the water and the apples turned to chocolate at Susan's birthday party. John had a bad day because every thing was going wrong. I like chocolate. This story makes me dream of chocolate.

I think everybody in my whole family should read it because it funny and crazy things happened to John.
