The Sweet Adventures of Henry P. Twist
An elderly pastry chef rediscovers his youth in a land of faeries, myth, magic and the most scrumptious sweets ever imagined. After forty five years of working at Brackmeyer Sweets, one of the largest factories in all of Germany, master pastry chef – extraordinaire, Henry Peppermint Twist is forced to retire and live out the rest of his days in a retirement home in the countryside. But Unbeknownst, to Henry, and the other elderly people before him, his stay there will be a short one; for he soon comes face to face with a peculiar little man who will lead him on one of the most scrumptious journeys of a lifetime.
This is a captivating story. I read it with my ten year old son. We could not get enough of it and can’t wait for the sequel. The author really brings the characters to life and he adds in some humor as well. –Joseph Nuovo
Totally charming story! The Brackmeyer Sweets factory offers metal cauldrons full of melted chocolate or caramel and people stir these wearing heat-resistant suits. Charles B. Brackmeyer Jr. Is the bad guy who sends Henry P Twist, master chef, off to the old folks’ home in order to replace him with machinery. Oh no! Readers will be delighted at what happens next. Chefs should win, factory owners should lose.
Just love this story –Susan Malm
