“…a celebration of all things chocolate…. a delightful blend of clever, precise writing and colourful, imaginative artwork. Both the text and the illustrations contain liberal servings of humour, and this is a ‘feel good’ book that, although geared primarily to young children, will appeal to people of all ages.” – Highly Recommended, CM Magazine

“Let us stuff our caloric worries away and now praise, in read-aloud voice, chocolate – that giver of happiness… The characters have the elemental sophistication of stone pictographs come to life, with great, stick-figure maws ever ready for chocolate insertion. The colors are gorgeous and, appropriately, are reminiscent of a Wayne Thiebaud cupcake – chocolate, of course.” – Kirkus Reviews

“…the text captures the essence of chocolate–its varying incarnations and textures–and it will leave everyone salivating. In addition to being a great candidate for programs, the book has potential as an easy reader as well. The art has a European flair… the art and narrative work together; while the text is no-frills, the illustrations depict fancier treats, like cakes and truffles.… a sweet storytime.” – School Library Journal

“…lets readers experience the taste, smell and colour of the world’s most beloved treat…. Illustrations by Evelyn Daviddi complete this tasty read.” – The Guelph Mercury

“…the delectable tale by Davide Calì, entices readers to use their senses in exploring the fabulous world of chocolate. 32 pages of chocolaty fun-which we’re sure most of you can relate to!” – Tots Trends Weekly Magazine
