My son (7) and I (Mom) reviewed this book for Mother Daughter Book Reviews. Here are our thoughts:
This book is about using our imagination. I really liked all of the pictures – they were really funny. My favorite picture is of the fireflies that have a body made out of a light bulb. That was really funny. My favorite part of the story was the lollipop soldiers because they were funny. I also really liked the little stars because they were cute. Nothing made any sense and that was good because it doesn’t make any sense for fish to have hair, bumblebees to swim, and for bananas to be round and glow in the dark. I liked how the book was silly. I learned that if chocolate were purple, bananas would glow in the dark and be round. And, lizards would dance and sing and dolphins would fly. That’s what would happen. Overall, I really liked this book and I thought it was very funny. I want to give this book 100 stars but my Mom won’t let me. I think everybody would like this book.
If Chocolate Were Purple is a highly imaginative, whimsical journey exploring what would happen if we let our imaginations run wild. “If chocolate were purple” is just the beginning. Think about what the world would be like if dolphins could fly or if bananas were round and glowed in the dark or if the stars hummed a tune as you kiss your loved one goodnight. But the best part of the story comes at the end when a mother’s love comes shining through leaving the reader filled with delight and warmth.
I think my son and I agree that If Chocolate Were Purple is a fun and imaginative story featuring superb rhyming, beautiful illustrations, and lots of silliness. The author gets very creative in taking the reader on a journey deep into her imagination where all kinds of strange beings do unexpected things. My kids and I all loved the part about the lollipop soldiers providing comfort to a child who may be afraid of the dark. Most kids, at one time or another, will experience fear at nighttime and I think the idea of lollipop soldiers standing guard is brilliant.
The illustrations were all superb in how colorful and detailed they were. There are many details in the pictures that are not mentioned in the text making this book one that children will want to revisit again and again in an attempt to spy something they had not noticed before. My son kept complaining that I was turning the pages too quickly. He was very interested in the illustrations and pointed out many things that I had missed. I also have to comment on the cover – it is absolutely eye-catching. This is a book I would notice right away on a library or bookstore shelf.
My Bottom Line:
If Chocolate Were Purple is a whimsical journey featuring solid rhyming, beautifully detailed illustrations, a great deal of silliness, and a heartwarming ending that will leave children and their caregivers feeling utterly delighted. I highly recommend this book as bedtime book or in the classroom as a jumping off point to get children to open their minds and let their creativity flow. Ages 3+

Read information about the authorI grew up in Pennsylvania and spent most of my life in the East. In 2007 my family and I moved to California. With two cars my husband and I moved two dogs, two guinea pigs, a cornsnake, and our 10-year-old daughter across the country (whew!). The five-day road trip (including a near escape by both dogs on Day 3) was one of my best (and most interesting) experiences ever. In fact, I'm not sure why that isn't a book yet...
A few years later, after an especially boring day in the car (where the kids and I told stories and built characters instead of griping), I found writing again. Fiona Thorn was born on that day, and I’ve been writing ever since. :)
