A heart-warming story of friendship, loyalty and lots of hot chocolate!
Johan’s thinks that most problems can be solved by having a ‘magical’ cup of hot chocolate. He has a happy home, which he shares with Mum, Dad and his little sister Lani.

It is one of three thoughtful, entertaining and beautifully illustrated books that sensitively help development of ‘emotional literacy’ in young children.
