About the Novel:
The Chocolate Touch is a re-imagined story of a young boy who turns everything he eats into chocolate. John Midas loves candy, especially chocolate. He loves it so much, that he refuses to eat anything else. His parents try to get him to eat more healthy food, but to no avail. One day, John finds a mysterious coin on his way to a friend's house. He decides to spend this coin on a box of chocolate from a store he's never seen before. To his disappointment, the box contains a single ball of chocolate. He eats it anyway, enjoying every last piece. The next day, John wakes to discover that everything he eats turns to chocolate. John is the happiest he could ever be, but soon discovers the downfalls of a chocolate diet.
