The Great Chocoplot is an Award-Winning and No.1 Best-Selling children’s story about a global chocolate crisis that has been translated into several languages.
Chocolate! Chuckles! Mystery! A lip-licking treat where reading meets chocolate (the perfect combo). What if chocolate vanished – forever? Wouldn’t that be awful? Especially for Jelly and her family. They live in Chompton-on-de-Lyte, home of the famous Blocka Choca bars. If this disaster happens, it’s not just people’s taste buds that will suffer, it’s local families and jobs. But Jelly is suspicious. Soon a trail of clues leads her to a posh chocolate shop nearby. The pompous owner, seems weirdly smug despite his failing business. Is the Chocopocalypse really coming – or is there a chocoplot afoot?
“With an excellent cast of characters, laugh-out-loud moments, and witty and sharp observations, this is a great choice for fans of Dahl and Walliams.” – The Guardian, Best New Children’s Books.
“Inventive, original and genuinely funny” – Lovereading4kids

Read All About it!
If you want to read the first chapter of The Great Chocoplot click here and see if it tingles your appetite for more!!
For a special extra bonus, there is a deleted chapter here. It was a scene removed during the final stages of editing and it was taken out purely to keep the word count down. It’s a bit of fun and happens between Chapters 11 & 12 where Jelly and Gran experience some of the crazy rioting that happens because of the imminent Chocopocalypse. But it’s best if you don’t read it without reading the rest of the story first!!
