UNCLE LEO'S ADVENTURES IN THE SWISS DESERT
Middle Grade, 2010
“We're lucky we can eat chocolate,” said Uncle Leo. “There are places where it's dangerous to eat chocolate.”
“Dangerous to eat chocolate?” I said. “Where?”
“I'll tell you about it,” said Uncle Leo.
Uncle Leo is no ordinary uncle, he is one-of-a-kind: an adventurer, a traveller and a magician all rolled into one. Join him as he tells Andy and his brother Graham all about his adventures in the Swiss desert: from being a superstar in Nullistan to finding a miraculous medicine that can cure all illness; from a thrilling encounter with the people of Chocolateland, who worship all things sweet, to being turned into a living doll in the land of monsters.
Funny, endearing and accompanied by lively and colourful illustrations, this third book in the Uncle Leo's Adventures series – that sold more than a million copies in Israel – brings to life the magic of storytelling.
