Michael and I have been participating in James Cudney’s Children’s Readathon. It has been running throughout August and we have had great fun reading and reviewing a number of wonderful children’s books.

James has written some wonderful family sagas and hosts a marvelous blog, This is my Truth Now. You can find out more about James’ books here: https://thisismytruthnow.com/my-writing-book/

James has read and two of our Sir Chocolate books and we are over the moon with his delightful reviews.

Sir Chocolate and the Strawberry Cream Berries story and cookbook

Available as an A5 book, a square book for very young children and a kindle book from TLS Publications here: https://tslbooks.uk/product-tag/robbie-cheadle/


In this wonderful story, we meet Sir Chocolate and his home, Chocolate Land. When some friends run into trouble, they learn how to work with a possible enemy and turn the concerns into a new friendship. What a great lesson for kids! The pictures are absolutely gorgeous. Don’t read on an empty stomach — have some candy and chocolate nearby! This really sets the stage for several other books that show us the adventures and foods involved in creating this wonderful village and setting. I’m in awe of the author’s talent and creativity, but inspired how it’s a family affair. Kudos to the Cheadles!

Sir Chocolate and the Sugar Crystal Caves story and cookbook

This book is also available as an A5 book, a square book and a kindle version.


I’m in absolute awe thinking about the creativity within the Cheadle family. Their culinary and literary talents are fantastic. In one of their newer books, Sir Chocolate and the Sugar Crystal Caves story and cookbookRobbie Cheadle and her children take us on an extraordinary journey to the sugar crystal caves which are in danger of melting.
