Did you know that chocolate originated with the ancient Aztec and Mayan cultures and remains one of the most popular foods in the world? Chocolate facts, chocolate secrets! In this third volume penned by the mysterious Pseudonymous Bosch, the author is both the first-person narrator and a character in the book. Like an audio circus ringmaster, Joshua Swanson expertly juggles both parts, introducing other characters, directly asking the listener questions, whispering helpful asides, and encouraging our heroine, Cass (played with verve by Cassandra Morris), to forge on as she battles an evil dessert chef, rescues her kidnapped mother, and dodges some very deadly sweets. This bright mix of warm narration, fine acting, sound effects, and, of course, chocolate is the recipe for one of the most innovative and entertaining children's audio productions of the year. B.P.
