Quotes & Awards

  • “What child could resist it? A deliciously dark and chocolatey book full of big chunks of crazy humor and a cast of mouth-watering characters…This Book Is Not Good for You is actually very good for you…The teasing, topsy-turvy world created by the scrumptious Mr. Bosch is guaranteed to have you laughing all the way to the next installment.”

    Lancashire Evening Post

  • “According to Hachette Audio, Kennedy and Morris are so believable in their roles as children that several listeners in house wondered about the casting policy for underage narrators!”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • “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.”


  • “Bosch again intersperses the story with warnings for readers and gives footnote explanations about types of chocolate…Although there is no secret code to unravel, fans of the first two books will find this sequel satisfying.”


  • Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award
