The Wishing Shelf Book Review

THE CHOCOLATE CLOUDS received a wonderful professional review from "The Wishing Shelf" in the UK. "The Wishing Shelf Book Awards" are one of the most well-known literature awards for independent authors in the UK and internationally. I just entered the book in the award and received an incredible review from the founder Billy Bob Buttons (Edward Trayer) already. Thank you so much! Read the full review below:

"Charmingly written, sweetly illustrated, and filled with a host of unforgettable magical characters - and CHOCOLATE! Highly recommended!" What a delightful book this is. Not only is it superbly illustrated and full of over-the-top, magical characters, there's also a lot of chocolate in it! And I happen to love chocolate. In fact, I’d go as far as to say, apart from wee and poo, chocolate is the very best subject for a children’s book. And I think Roald Dahl would agree! So, what's the plot? Well, in a nutshell, Henry (the hero of the story) is a chubby boy living in Sugarland – where, I might add, everybody is, well, a bit on the flabby side! When the chocolate clouds vanish from the sky, Henry embarks on a wild journey to discover what’s happened. What follows is a thrilling adventure for 9 – 12-year-olds, full of magical twists, fantastical characters, and a very scary island. There’s also a surprisingly strong ‘healthy eating’ message parents will love. I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The writing style is simple and always accessible, the story is cleverly plotted, and the pencilwork in the illustrations is outstanding. I think any child (or parent) looking for a fun-filled adventure will be very happy they picked this. I love it when I discover a new author I can recommend, and I very much look forward to seeing what Marc Remus has for us next... A ‘Wishing Shelf’ Book Review You can find the book on Amazon as Kindle, Hardcover or Paperback. Available in German under "Die Schokoladenwolken." Soon available in Dutch!
