An Excerpt from Chocolate Fever


      Can you imagine a boy having a chocolate-bar sandwich as an after-school
      snack? Well, Henry did, just about every day. And when he ate mashed potatoes,
      just a few drops of chocolate syrup swished through seemed to make them
      taste a lot better. Chocolate sprinkles sprinkled on top of plain buttered
      noodles were tasty, too. Not to mention a light dusting of cocoa on things
      like canned peaches, pears, and applesauce.

      In the Greens' kitchen pantry there was always a giant supply of chocolate
      cookies, chocolate cakes, chocolate pies, and chocolate candies of every
      kind. There was ice cream, too. Chocolate, of course, and chocolate nut,
      chocolate fudge, chocolate marshmallow, chocolate swirl, and especially
      chocolate almond crunch. And all of it was just for Henry.

      If there was one thing you could say about Henry it was that he surely did
      love chocolate. "Probably more than any boy in the history of the world,"
      his mother said.

      "How does Henry like his chocolate?" Daddy Green would sometimes joke.

      "Why, he likes it bitter, sweet, light, dark, and daily."
      And it was true. Up until the day we're talking about right now.

Easily one of my favorite books as a kid.

Henry Green has spent his whole life eating anything and everything chocolate with no consequences. Then one day he starts feeling funny and notices some brown spots on his arm. He then started smelling of chocolate. He got scared and ran away. I truck driver picked him up and tried to get him to call home when he was hijacked by robbers. The robbers thought there were valuables in the truck but it was only candy. Henry helps save the day and gets the cure for his chocolate fever. He also learns a little self control in the process. We just got through reading this in school. All of the the 4th grade had read it now. The kids really seemed to enjoy it. they even laughed out loud a couple of times. I thought that it was a pretty good book and will probably read it with them again next year. For this one I would probably use the story as a spring board for healthy eating and living. We would go over the food pyramid and daily exercise routines. All of this after, of course, a party with a chocolate fountain where the children can brin in different items to try dipped in chocolate. Yum!

Henry Green loves chocolate and that was normal to him, but then he started to see brown spots all over his body and it got more and more so he ran away. Next, the robbers take him to somewhere... it wasn't bad thing at all because he got a solution for it from someone else! This story used lot of imagination so it was special.

I read this book when I was a child growing up in the 80's and loved it. Only a few books stand out in my memory that I read growing and this was one of them. I have an 11 year old son now and he has read it and loved it too!
