The Most Amazing Thing

The fun and playful story about Ninon, who outshines primadonna chefs.

When her best friend Choco moves away, Ninon feels so sad that she’ll never be happy again. But one day the best chefs in the world come to the village to compete, and Ninon receives a mysterious envelope in the mail…

The Most Amazing Thing is an extraordinary tale about grumpy master chefs, a stubborn cat, five cocoa beans and last, but not least, a very imaginative girl.

The picture book is beautifully illustrated by Hans Jørgen Sandnes, and all the images are painted with real chocolate!
