Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-7-Eleven-year-old twins Oz and Lily move into a haunted house inherited from their great-great-uncles, who were triplets. The wallpaper in Lily's room gossips and taunts her, while the mysterious chocolate shop downstairs holds its own charms. The uncles were sorcerers of a sort and developed a magic recipe for chocolate. When one of them defected to the evil side and created a chocolate potion for immortality, he killed his brothers, hoping to retrieve their two golden molds. The only way to achieve the magic combination is by using all three molds as one. Unfortunately, an evil gang has gotten wind of the recipe and has even more dastardly plans. Oz, Lily, and a friend are thrust headlong into an exciting secret mission to stop the evil before it is too late. With the aid of a glamorous talking cat, a feisty cigar-smoking rat, a ghost of an elephant, and even the equivalent of James Bond secret agents, the good versus evil battle begins. This story has adventure, excitement, humor, and magic, and will appeal to boys and girls alike.-D. Maria LaRocco, Cuyahoga Public Library, Strongsville, OHα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

Mix chocolate, magic, villains, one immortal uncle, a few invisible and immortal animals, and a couple 11-year-olds, and viola!—a tasty morsel that, in some ways, is reminiscent of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Unexpectedly, the Spoffards inherit a house from Mr. Spoffard’s great-uncles, who tragically died young in a tram accident in 1938. Twins Lily and Oz are captivated by the house, especially after meeting the resident invisible and immortal (and talking) animals: Demerara the cat and Spike the rat. Demerara and Spike tell the children that their deceased uncles were famous London chocolatiers and that they suspect one brother, Isadore, didn’t really die. The twins soon learn their summer will be quite an adventuresome one. By using magic to foil the children’s unsuspecting parents, the Secret Ministry of the Unexplained enlists the kids to help solve a plot to steal their uncles’ secret chocolate recipe and use it to destroy the world. From one unpredictable plot turn to another, Saunders’ lively characters will endear themselves to readers from start to finish. A great read-aloud, too. Grades 4-6. --J. B. Petty

Some of the gifted and talented students at our elementary school, read this book for an optional summer book club. The following is their review of the book. The plot of the Whizz Pop Chocolate Shop has a good mix of themes...Spy Movie meets magic mixed with animals sprinkled with chocolate. The perfect combination for a very good book! The kids in the story are relatable, their strengths and their flaws make them seem like somebody you would really know. Set in England, we liked learning about the various landmarks there. The inherited home was an exciting setting, filled with magical twists and turns. We liked learning about the inner workings of a government spy organization. This book is a great read for both boys and girls!

I read this with my 4th grade daughter and we really enjoyed the book. We laughed out loud in many areas but especially over the cat who is quite a character. Some of the storyline was a bit advanced and a little bit scary but the book was so enjoyable that it didn't impact or ability to get through the book. There was the word "damn-it", which I didn't think was a necessary addition although I know my daughter hears much worse at school. I simply skipped the word and went on.
Very fun story and a worthwhile read.

Format: Audio CD
Background: Lily and Oz's family has just inherited an old house on Skittle Street out of the blue. It is a strange matter, because the house used to be owned by a long dead uncle who what a famous chocolate maker. Lily and Oz realize that the house is more than it seems, it is magic, and they must help an immortal rat and cat keep their evil immortal uncle away from them and the family.

Review: There was a lot going on in the book, so many magical people, places and things, and it was a little hard to keep track of at first, but this audiobook was adorable. I was laughing out loud in my car through the whole thing and the end even brought a tear to my eye. Lily and Oz play off one another well and their magical pets are hilarious, especially the cat, she is a trip!

The plot had great flow and I wanted to keep listening to it to find out who was behind some of the drama. I think that for young readers and listeners this would be a wonderful book. I really enjoyed myself while listening to it

The Whizz Pop Chocolate Shop (afffectionately called "Whizz Pop") by my students, is a wonderful, fun story for children. I teach students with learning disabilities and it is difficult to get them to read, much less be acutally excited about books. I comb the internet, books of the year, Caldecott, Yearling, blogs to find engaging books for my students. This is one that they beg to take home every night to read the next chapter. My students with dyslexia are very connected to Lily and I am excited for them to discover how her disability makes her magically special and a heroine.

I gave this book, as a gift, to my grandson who is 11 years old. He loves that it has no pictures and he can use his imagination to get in the story. He promises to talk to me about the book after he's finished reading. He's asked for more books like this one. Excellent!

This was a present for my 8 year old. My older children heard us reading it and it ended up being a family book experience. It is the type of book that leaves you wanting more. The book is filled with magic and adventure appropriate for the younger kids but holds the attention of older kids and adults.
The basic story: three magical brothers own a Chocolate shop. The fight over girl and one of them turns "bad" and offs the other two. Many decades later their ancestors (two young siblings) are lured back to the chocolate shop. They learn about magic and with the help of an eternal cat and rat, an invisible elephant (ghost), and some other fun friends they must solve a mystery and try and avert a major disaster!
Great book for the whole family to enjoy!

A lot of imagination went into this story. The characters are both believable and delightfully unbelievable at the same time. A fun read.
