"The Worldwide Dessert Contest!" A children's book and musical CD all in one (what a deal)!




"Publishers Weekly" raves: A little bit of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with a dash of Homer Price's donut maker, this novel pays homage to the longstanding rapport between children and sweets. John Apple longs to win the Worldwide Dessert Contest, but all his delicious desserts have a penchant for changing into something else at the last minute. The way he overcomes this difficulty and takes first place involves a search for the greatest chef in the world, the defeat of the thieving title-holder of the contest and a run-in with a judge who has, thanks to John, a caramel apple bonded to his cheek from their last encounter. Elish writes with a sure hand of this sugary world, his tongue squarely in the area of his sweet tooth. For his ability to praise desserts in an endlessly original fashion, he deserves a blue ribbon. Ages 9-11.

First published in 1998, "The Worldwide Dessert Contest" by Dan Elish is now an enhanced e-book with an original musical score by a theater veteran included as part of the story!

White House Pastry Chef Ann Amernick adds, "The Worldwide Dessert Contest by Dan Elish is a "dElish" ride on apple everything’s!.....an apple pancake trampoline, an apple soufflĂ© balloon, and flying and skating apple pies, to name a few. The wild adventures of Johnny Applefeller and his friends is a delectable journey filled mouthwatering desserts and seasoned with his Aunt Harriet’s simple and wise sayings. But even more fun is clicking on the interactive links to YouTube videos of the musical the author wrote several years after the book was written. As Aunt Harriet says, “The importance of desserts must never be underestimated.” Glorious!
