John Midas is usually a good boy, but his one weakness is candy. His parents beg him to keep to a balanced diet, but John continues to spoil his appetite and refuses to eat a proper dinner. When a magical curse begins turning everything he eats to chocolate, John realizes that his unhealthy habits come with some nasty side effects.
The Chocolate Touch is a modern twist on the classic story of King Midas, illustrating the importance of moderation and healthy eating habits through a series of chocolatey disasters. Simple language and straightforward narration make this easy for new readers to digest.
I would recommend this to young fans of Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle who enjoy a moral-based story and a dash of magic.
