"Reminiscent of Lemony Snicket." The Bookseller"

About the Author

Pseudonymous Bosch is a pseudonym, or as he would prefer to call it (because he is very pretentious), a nom de plume. Unfortunately, for reasons he cannot disclose, but which should be obvious to anyone foolhardy enough to read his book, he cannot tell you his real name. But he admits he has a deep-seated fear of mayonnaise.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bought for my 9 yr old, this book is as great as the previous 2 in the series. My daughter is a confident reader in her own right, but still enjoys sharing a book at bedtime. Both her and her dad have enjoyed this series greatly.
While I would encourage anyone who has not read the previous 2 books to go back and read those first, it is not strictly essential. While I am sure she would have enjoyed reading this on her own, it is one of those books that work incredibly well out loud and shared.

This book is full of adventure, mystery and fun. As the blurb on the back gives such a wonderful flavour of the tone of these books, I will type it out for your enjoyment: " Health Warning: Do NOT OPEN THIS BOOK... Take one sniff of its contents and you will be hooked by an irresistible desire to taste the adventure within. And the ingredients of this adventure are decidedly deadly, including as they do: A cursed Aztec artefact, An evil and deranged chef, a secret jungle lair inhabited by cocoa-crazed monkey and the most dangerous chocolate ever created.. I beg you, step away from this deliciously dark mystery, before the secrets within overpower you."

A real page turner, full of fun, adventure, crazy ideas and brilliantly colourful characters, I can see this being perfect for children aged 8 - 12 yrs approx. Thoroughly recommended by both my daughter, my husband reading it and I admit I find myself straining to listen in from my office, stifling the odd laugh at particularly silly parts.

Format: Paperback
Gold Star Award Winner!

Cass, Max-Ernest, and Yo-Yogi are in the middle of another mystery.

Señor Hugo, great chocolate experimenter, Dr. L, and Ms. Mauvais are holding Cass' mom captive. The ransom: the legendary Tuning Fork, an instrument that can turn any food or drink into whatever the owner wishes.

Now, Cass and her friends will have to battle deadly sweets, crazy puzzles, and other sinister things in order to defeat Hugo and get her mother back. Where is the great Tuning Fork? Can Cass and her friends stop Hugo from achieving his evil desires?

A fun, action-packed adventure for reluctant readers, the puzzles are especially fun to solve. The humorous chocolate facts and puns are entertaining. The characters are well-developed, and the plot is fun and uniquely crafted. Those who like action, adventure, and mystery stories will truly enjoy reading THIS BOOK IS NOT GOOD FOR YOU.

I really liked this book. The characters were incredibly odd yet interesting (like Max-Ernest who has about 100 allergies and Ms Mauvis who is 400!) and the plot is totally wild and the author has been very creative with their writing in this book. The book is not good for young children (maybe it's meant for young children, judging by the title!) because it contains mild violence and if it was a film it would definitely be PG.

I think this book is suitable for ages 9-130, because children under 9 wouldn't understand a lot of the words and may not understand the storyline. I think all adults and older children would enjoy this book a lot!

When I purchased the book, I was unaware that it was aimed at children but continued reading it anyway. As a fan of HitchHikers Guide to the Galaxy the added annotations did not annoy me too much and I think that young teenagers would enjoy the plot and the book. Certainly, I learned some astonishing information about chocolate and the appendix at the end of the book was fascinating. It may have been helpful if a suitability guide or recommended age range had been indicated

I love this book because it is simply about chocolates. It's the best book in the series. Anyone who loves chocolate should absolutely read this book. That is why I have rated this five stars. Now I want to read the next one.
