This is about John. John went to Susan?s house, John went the other way then he found a coin with his initials on it. John spent the coin on a huge box of chocolates. When John got home, he got ready for bed and took his tonic. When John went to bed he opened the box to eat the chocolate. The next day John went to school. John had many adventures as things turned into chocolate. Mr. Midas took John to Dr. Cranium. Dr. Cranium said John has chocolatitis. The storekeeper gave John two choices. Either he could be greedy or he could save his mom. Guess what John did? You?ll have to read the story to find out.

I thought this book was interesting because it was about something that couldn?t really happen. I liked it because it made me laugh like the time that John?s pencil turned to chocolate and he couldn?t do his math test. My favorite part of the book was when John bought the box of chocolates because that started the whole story. John was my favorite character because he was always getting into trouble.

I think everybody who like chocolate should read this book.
