For a little girl’s seventh birthday, she and her father are baking her favorite cake—chocolate! As they work, her father tells the story of her Grandpa Cacao, a farmer from the Ivory Coast in Africa. In a land where big, graceful elephants roam and the air is hot and damp, Grandpa Cacao worked in his village to harvest cacao, which is what makes chocolate.<br>

When the little girl’s cake is done baking, her mother returns home with a special visitor . . . Grandpa Cacao himself!<br>

Including a chocolate cake recipe and information about harvesting cacao in the backmatter, acclaimed illustrator Elizabeth Zunon captures a gorgeous intergenerational experience with stunning illustrations, a heart-warming story, and lots of chocolate.
