The Chocolate Touch

Written by Patrick Skene • Illustrated by Margot Apple

Reviewed by Ty T. (age 7)

John found a coin and bought a box of chocolate. Everything that John put in his mouth turned to chocolate. At home, his toothbrush and toothpaste turned to chocolate. His bacon, eggs, and orange juice turned to chocolate as well. John took out his notebook and a pencil while at school. He put his pencil in his mouth and it turned to chocolate. His gloves turned to chocolate.

My favorite character in this story was John because he turned everything to chocolate. This story doesn?t remind me of anything because the things we put in our mouths do not turn to chocolate. However, it would be cool if we could turn everything to chocolate.

I recommend this book for children ages 7 to 12 because it would be a nice story to read for fun.
