“A deliciously informative, engaging and sweeping chronicle of one of the most popular treats in the world” (Kirkus Reviews).
Chocolate explores many aspects of the much-loved cacao bean: cutting-edge genetic science; social and environmental considerations; history; and culture—providing a thought-provoking look into one of the world’s most popular foods through the centuries. It relates fun facts as well—like the story of the children who went on strike to protest a price hike on candy bars after World War II (and were accused of being Communist agents).
As a bonus, it also includes photos—and some sweet recipes.
“Fascinating . . . Excellent and highly original.” —School Library Journal (starred review)
