This is a charming and clever tale of a little monster who loves chocolate. Grendel loves his mum and Grendel loves his dog, but most of all Grendel loves CHOCOLATE! When he is magically granted three wishes, what does he wish for? More chocolate of course! He gets rather more than he asks for when his whole world turns to chocolate and starts to melt...Whatever can he do? This fresh and fun re-telling of the Midas story has a message for us all - be careful what you wish for!
