The "Secret" Series: Book 3
This Book is Not Good for You
by Pseudonymous Bosch
“Like Lemony Snicket with a little Monty Python.”
“A deliciously dark and chocolatey book full of big chunks of crazy humour and a cast of mouth-watering characters.”
The Lancashire Evening Post
Pseudonymous Bosch is a pseudonym, or as he would prefer to call it (because he is very pretentious), a nom de plume. Unfortunately, for reasons he cannot disclose, but which should be obvious to anyone foolhardy enough to read this book, he cannot tell you his real name. But he admits to a deep-seated fear of mayonnaise.

What child could resist it? A deliciously dark and chocolatey book full of big chunks of crazy humour 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 instalment.
Lancashire Evening Post
With an evil dessert chef, a secret jungle lair inhabited by cocoa-crazed monkeys, and the most dangerous chocolate ever created, one thing’s for sure – they’ve certainly got their work cut out for them!
National Geographic Kids
There is no doubting the educational interest of much of this material, while the context should engage the reader with its air of complicity in eating chocolate as much as in unravelling The Secret. In character terms, the children’s backgrounds are described in a graphic, even hyperbolic, way, yet still demonstrate real problems faced by young people… overall this is an entertaining, enlightening and enhancing read which should appeal to a wide age-range.

the name of this book is secret
As soon as I had read the first page I was hooked, I couldn't put it down. It is a real mystery. Exciting and somehow scary. I loved it. I definitely recommend this book.
