DECLICIOUS CHOCOLATES ARE SPECIAL
The Whizz Pop Chocolate Shop by Kate Saunders have two of my favorite elements, chocolates and cats. Twins, Oscar and Lily, move into a new home, in a new city that their father has inherited. Long thought to be dead, their evil great uncle wants to capture the twins' magic in order to continue his diabolical plan to make a chocolate that would make other villains immortal. Along with a secret sector of MI6, the twins are helped by Caydon, Demera and Spike, immortal cat and rat, to stop their great uncle's evil plans.
This is a highly improbably story, especially when Demera, the cat, turns into a giant and binges on McDonald burgers, but a lot of fun nonetheless.
For readers in 4th -6th grade.
