Description

Fans of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and readers of Chris Grabenstein and Wendy Mass will love is an action-packed mystery about what happens if the world is about to run out of chocolate!
 
   Life for Jelly Welly—or Jennifer Wellington—is totally and utterly normal in Chompton-on-de-Lyte. She lives with her mum and dad and gran, has nosy neighbors who like to gossip, and really needs to think of a science project that will get her a good grade.
   But when news breaks of an impending chocopocalypse, her whole world—and the world at large—is thrown into utter chaos.
   With only six days left until no more chocolate, Jelly has a sneaking suspicion that something isn’t right. She and her gran investigate, picking up on a mysterious trail of clues.
   Is it really the dreaded chocopocalypse, or is there a mastermind behind the madness?

About the Author

Chris Callaghan’s debut novel is The Chocopocalypse. He loves reading and writing (and chocolate) and, as an author, has taken inspiration from his various jobs, from fixing aircraft as a member of the Royal Air Force to checking pollution from pudding factories as an environmental scientist. Chris lives in England with his wife and daughter, who have to endure his bouts of “groovy kitchen dancing.”
