The Chocolate Touch is the story of a boy named John Midas. John is a nice boy who gets in trouble once in a while but is mostly good. He has a nice mom and dad, a little sister, and lives a happy life. His one bad fault is eating too much candy. He likes all candy, but especially chocolate. He spends all his money on candy and never shares the candy he buys. One day, while walking to the candy shop, he finds a coin on the sidewalk. It reads, "JM" on one side and has a picture of a fat boy on the other side. He thinks that is interesting because "JM" are his initials. He goes into the shop and asks if he could use the coin to buy anything. The man says that it is the only kind of money he accepts. John buys a big box of chocolate, takes it home, goes to bed, and eats a bite before falling asleep. The next morning, this toothpaste tastes like chocolate, so he eats it. When he drinks his orange juice, it tastes like chocolate. He drinks the whole glass even though he doesn't like orange juice. Even his bacon and eggs taste like chocolate. John has a habit of chewing on his gloves when he's thinking about something. So when he chews on his gloves he eats right through the leather because it tastes like chocolate. That day he eats half of a friend's silver dollar and drinks chocolate from the water fountain. John starts to get tired of chocolate. Finally it goes too far when he gets a kiss from his mom. He wishes he had never eaten that special chocolate he bought with the special coin. He runs to the candy shop, talks to the shop owner, and learns an important lesson on being greedy and wanting too much of a good thing. I recommend this book. It is fun, entertaining, and easy to read.
