I’ve had to wait until Easter Sunday to read this, but it was definitely worth it!
Jelly Wellington loves a Blocka Chocha, but with the impending Chocopocalypse, supplies in Chompton are running low. And just as worrying, she has to make a vlog for her latest science project. Can she prove whether the Chocopocalypse is real? With her last Blocka Chocha sealed safely in a tin, she along with the rest of the world, will have to wait and see.
Meanwhile, Garibaldi Chocolati arrives in Chompton, with his bitter chocolate and a temperament to match. Why would a chocolatier be so delighted by the imminent demise of chocolate?
Chris Callaghan takes the reader on a fabulously imaginative journey; pacey plot and sharp humour, centred around a family where their love shines through, and quite possibly the worst neighbour you could wish on anybody, combine to create a laugh out loud* adventure that will have you turning the pages while reaching for more chocolate.
This is my favourite Easter Egg ever! I devoured it one sitting, and now get to share the joy with children at school, as it takes a well deserved place on my bookshelf.
Great for fans of Roald Dahl, Kieran Crowley and David Solomons.
*It’s probably best if you don’t read this whilst eating chocolate if you’ve just bought a beautiful new cream rug; time to get the vax and carpet shampoo out…
