In How Sugaropolis Got Dessert Back, Kevin D. Janison brings young readers to Sugaropolis, a town in Sweetzerland, a dessert lover’s paradise. In Sugaropolis, there is sugar everywhere! Sugar cane grows in fields around the town. Bakeries and donut and ice cream shops overwhelm children with the tantalizing aroma of sweet treats. From Candy Cane Lane to Rocky Road, the children continually indulge in sweet treats. But, suddenly, strange things start to happen. A Little League player drops in his tracks, too tired to continue to the next base. Children's teeth mysteriously fall out. Imagine a 100-yard dash turning into a 30-minute stroll! It is not until parents report that their children don’t even have enough energy to play video games that people really worry.
Enter Deputy Dorkface who knows something must be done. Specifically, there must be a ban placed on all things sweet. Upset about the changes, children try to steal sweet things, then get together in their secret clubhouse to put together a plan on how to seize back their desserts. No one could have anticipated the food fight that results. When Deputy Dorkface responds by carrying the children off to jail, negotiations begin. Will the children and the townspeople be able to come up with a plan that will provide for the children to eat well and still enjoy their sugary desserts?
Kevin D. Janison’s How Sugaropolis Got Dessert Back has wonderful, fun and detailed illustrations by Eldon Doty. Parents will appreciate having this story to share with their children. Teachers can use the story in connection with class discussions about healthy eating. But best of all, children will enjoy the journey through Sugaropolis, all the while learning some important things about the harm of a diet of nothing but sweets.
