Happy Valentine’s week, everyone! In anticipation of this delicious holiday, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite chocolate-filled children’s and YA books. I’m lucky to have savored quite a few in my day. Enjoy.
Max’s Chocolate Chicken by Rosemary Wells. Sweet, dear Max is one of my favorite children’s book characters, so of course I can’t help but love the way he stares adoringly at his beloved chocolate chicken. (And giggle at the way he tries to hide it from Ruby.)
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. A classic in children’s, chocolate-, and candy-themed literature. I loved this story about a boy who takes a fateful tour through a chocolate factory along with several other strange children.
The Chocolate Touch by Patrick Skene Catling. I devoured this book countless times as a child. A young boy eats a magic chocolate that makes everything taste like chocolate—and he soon learns that one can have too much of a good thing.
Have you read any good chocolate-themed books?
