★★★★★ So Fun!

When I read, “If Chocolate Were Purple”, I immediately had two time-travel wishes: I wished I could send the book back in time to my Momma, so she could read it with my sister and me…And I wished I could send “If Chocolate Were Purple” back in time to me, so I could read it with our daughter. I imagined turning each page, slowly reading and re-reading the words with her, exploring each stunning and fun visual element of each page, returning to previous pages again for the words and illustrations, then moving slowly forward again through the words and pictures until we finished the book for the night – returning to it again and again as a favorite. —by Amazon reviewer, dazed
