Do you like to eat lots of chocolate? Well if you do, this book is for you. When John finds a funny looking coin he never saw he goes to a candy store and buys a box of chocolate. John loved chocolate a lot. I mean a lot! When John opens the box he finds just one piece of chocolate in it. But when he tried it, it was one of the best chocolates. The chocolate was magical. From there the adventure starts.

I really like this book a lot because whenever John eats chocolate it's funny because he gets sick. In the beginning, John just cared about chocolate but at the end he changed and wanted to save his mom's life. When you read the book, you want to know what will happen next.

I recommend this book to people who love to eat lots of chocolate. I recommend this book to people who care about other people.
