Grade 2-6?Chocolate lovers will identify with Henry Green who eats chocolate wherever and however he wants. What a shock when he breaks out in a rash of brown spots that smell like chocolate! After running away from the doctor at the hospital, Henry stands up to a gang of boys, hitches a ride with a truck driverand is hijacked along with him. Veteran character voice actor Lionel Wilson reads Robert Kimmel Smith's book (Coward, 1972; Dell, pap.). Some of the character voices are exaggerated stereotypes emphasizing the humor of the book. Embedded in this tale are lessons in courage, caring, moderation, and prejudice. These tapes are good for individual and small groups to enhance reading skills especially in the middle elementary grades.
