Born in Brooklyn, New York, Robert Kimmel Smith was 8 years old when he read his first book--a book that moved him enough to make him cry. It turned out to be a life-defining event, because after that experience he decided not only that he loved reading, but also, luckily for us and for his millions of fans, that he wanted to become a ...

Read from the Book

An Excerpt from Chocolate Fever            Can you imagine a boy having a chocolate-bar sandwich as an after-school       snack? Well, Henry did, just about every day. And when he ate mashed potatoes,       just a few drops of chocolate syrup swished through seemed to make them       taste a lot better. Chocolate sprinkles sprinkled on top of plain buttered       noodles were tasty, too. Not to mention a light dusting of cocoa on things       like canned peaches, pears, and applesauce.      In the Greens' kitchen pantry there was always a giant supply of chocolate       cookies, chocolate cakes, chocolate pies, and chocolate candies of every       kind. There was ice cream, too. Chocolate, of course, and chocolate nut,       chocolate fudge, chocolate marshmallow, chocolate swirl, and especially       chocolate almond crunch. And all of it was just for Henry.      If there was one thing you could say about Henry it was that he surely did       love chocolate. "Probably more than any boy in the history of the world,"       his mother said.      "How does Henry like his chocolate?" Daddy Green would sometimes joke.      "Why, he likes it bitter, sweet, light, dark, and daily."      And it was true. Up until the day we're talking about right now.
