Have you ever woken up and thought, 'I want something different for breakfast?' That is exactly what happens to Candace Margaux in Chocolate Pudding for Breakfast by Daniel Sassoon. She is grumpy when she wakes up and does not want eggs, porridge, cereal, or toast. Her mummy asks her what she wants, and she says chocolate pudding, so that is what they set out to make. Candace Margaux is excited to help her mummy and eagerly grabs the ingredients out of the refrigerator. Her mummy warns her to be careful but… oops, she spills the milk. They continue with more small accidents along the way. Finally, the chocolate pudding is finished, and Candace Margaux is so excited to eat it that she does not wait for it to cool off! But she does not mind because it is the best chocolate pudding she has ever had.

Daniel Sassoon’s Chocolate Pudding for Breakfast is the first in the Happy Mealtimes Series. Kids will relate to Candace Margaux and her excitement at being able to have chocolate pudding for breakfast. Parents will relate to Candace’s mom as she helps her daughter make the chocolate pudding and deals with all the accidents along the way! A fun addition in the illustrations is a cat and teddy bear who appear often and look for the humorous message spelled out on the fridge. Chocolate Pudding for Breakfast is a tasty story that might encourage kids to help make their own unique breakfasts. Kids will enjoy repeating the refrain, “Oh no, Candace Margaux!” each time she has a mishap. The yummy chocolate pudding recipe is included at the end of the book.
