I found this book in a box of old books I have had since I was a child. Reading this book was a trip down memory lane, sitting outside reading and just being a kid. The story is cute and it is definitely worth a read. ( )

Henry Green loved chocolate so much that he ate it at every meal — in the regular ways, like chocolate cookies, chocolate cake, and chocolate milk, and in unusual ways, like chocolate syrup on mashed potatoes and chocolate sprinkles on buttered noodles. His parents loved and indulged him; even his older sister and brother were good to him. One morning he broke out in large, brown, chocolate-smelling spots. This book is a silly but fun story for children. ( )

This is the story of Henry who loves chocolate, like most kids his age, but Henry wants chocolate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. He eventually comes down with "Chocolate Fever" and chocolate spots take over his whole body. After running away from the hospital he meets a Man names Mac who assures him he doesn't care about his appearance because he is used to being looked at differently since he is a black man living in a white neighborhood. The two eventually find adventure and trouble but get through it together. The central message of this story to not judge people based on what the look like and how to use your differences to your advantage.

Henry Green was a boy who loved chocolate. He liked it bitter, sweet, dark, light, and daily; for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks; in cakes, candy bars, milk, and every other form you could possibly imagine. Henry probably loved chocolate more than any boy in the history of the world.

When strange brown spots start to appear all over Henry's body, he catches the attention of doctors who seem fascinated with his mysterious illness. Henry finds out that he has what appears to be the only ever recorded case of Chocolate Fever. He soon grows shy of the doctors and runs away from the hospital, but finds himself in even more trouble in the middle of an unusual hijacking. Henry learns his lesson after running into a few unexpected characters.
