Henry loves chocolate - he would (and does) eat chocolate as often as possible: chocolate milk, chocolate chip pancakes, chocolate sauce on top of everything...until one day he gets "Chocolate Fever" and is covered in big chocolatey spots. Henry's love of chocolate starts to waiver as he gets poked and prodded by doctors and teased by other children. How can he get rid of his chocolate fever??

This is a cute story, but I think the kids today will have a hard time relating with the main character. There are just too many things that are different about today's world than when the book was originally written. Henry gets into a truck with a stranger and thinks nothing of it, whereas kids would balk at that today. ( )

This story is about a boy's love of chocolate that leads to adventures he'd never imagine. It teaches reader's life lessons about courage, self-control, and prejudices. It also encourages them to be brave when faced with fear and rejection, things that all will encounter at some point or another. ( )

This is one of the book selected for this year's Battle of the Books competition. Can you imagine eating too much chocolate? Well Henry Green leanrs important lesson in moderation in this wacky taleabuot overindulging. ( )

I thought this book was both funny and taught a valuable lesson. The pictures within the chapters were great too! I thought it was great that the author taught the lesson of how you should treat others different than you. This shows how Henry is treated when he is diagnosed. Because this is a humorous story, this lesson is easily remembered for kids and would hopefully impact their actions when treating other people with respect.
