Chocolate Catby Sue Stainton, Anne Mortimer (Illustrator)
One day he does something different and makes chocolate mice with crunchy pink-sugar tails--but he won't eat them. Cat soon discovers there's something truly special about these little mice, and
In a drab village nestled between the mountains and the sea, an old chocolate maker lives alone with his cat, making uninspired chocolates to display in his dusty shop.
One day he does something different and makes chocolate mice with crunchy pink-sugar tails--but he won't eat them. Cat soon discovers there's something truly special about these little mice, and everyone who tastes them is inspired to create something new and different, something the little village has never seen.
Sue Stainton and Anne Mortimer have created a picture-book ode to chocolate and creativity!
When a grumpy chocolate maker, on a whim, makes a batch of chocolate mice with crunchy pink-sugar tails, his cat begins to distribute them throughout the village. One taste of the treat, and the other shopkeepers run to the chocolaterie, where they create chocolate masterpieces. Soon, the shop is the center of the village, tempting locals and tourists alike with its fantastic treats. While this book is not as strong as Stainton and Mortimer's The Lighthouse Cat (2004), Santa's Snow Cat (2001), and I Love Cats (2007, all HarperCollins),
