The Lovereading4Kids comment
Full of frothy invention and delicate magic, this third story about the most wonderful food shop is as charming as ever. Madeleine, one of the newest members of the ‘underground’ devotees of Madame Pamplemousse’s special shop, falls under the enchantment of an amazing chocolate shop. The chocolates she is given seem to take away all Madeleine’s troubles and especially her fear of the school bully. But soon, Madeleine finds herself slipping into a magical world from which there seems to be no escape.
Madame Pamplemousse and the Enchanted Sweet Shop by Rupert Kingfisher
It's winter in Paris and Madeleine is having problems at school. A new girl, Mirabelle, is bullying her. Madeleine is too ashamed to ask for help from her friends, Madame Pamplemousse and Camembert, but she's befriended by a woman called Madame Bonbon, who runs an alluring-looking sweet shop. The sweets Madame Bonbon gives Madeleine have the most bewitching effect, at first making her feel much stronger and able to confront Mirabelle. But soon they start drawing her into a strange, enchanted world from which she finds she cannot escape. For Madame Bonbon is really someone else in disguise - an old enemy from Madame Pamplemousse's past, who has come to Paris seeking her revenge.
Praise for 'Madame Pamplemousse and Her Incredible Edibles': 'Enchanting debut ... witty, warm-hearted and as delectable as one of the dishes it describes, this is as much a hymn to the culinary arts as to the magic of kindness, and is recommended for 6-9s
'A winner for Christmas'
