The Lovereading4Kids comment
Everybody loves chocolate! Grendel certainly loves it more than anything else so, when he finds a message inside a chocolate egg and offering him three wishes, he naturally makes a very terrible mistake. After he has turned the dog and his mum into chocolate, Grendel soon learns that there are other things that matter besides chocolate.
Grendel: A Cautionary Tale About Chocolate by David Lucas
This is a charming and clever tale of a little monster who loves chocolate. Grendel loves his mum and Grendel loves his dog, but most of all Grendel loves CHOCOLATE! When he is magically granted three wishes, what does he wish for? More chocolate of course! He gets rather more than he asks for when his whole world turns to chocolate and starts to melt...Whatever can he do?
This fresh and fun re-telling of the Midas story has a message for us all - be careful what you wish for! David Lucas is an extraordinary new talent in children's picture books - in 2008 he was named as one of The Big Picture campaign's Best New Illustrators.
Funny, gorgeous and great to read out loud. Independent
