In this delightfully illustrated book, Benneville Strohecker tells the story of two curious children, Aurora and Shane, as they make their way through a magical adventure to the chocolate factory, under the guidance of Ben, a family friend with a mischievous twinkle in his eye. On the way, they encounter magic lightning, a snaggletoothed sawfish, and a possum with a PhD. Based on Strohecker’s real-life experience as the founder of Harbor Sweets chocolates, and the creator of the Sweet Sloop, this book will entertain the eye and tantalize the taste buds of young and old readers alike.
