The Whizz Pop Chocolate Shop is about the Spoffard family. When they receive a letter from a lawyer stating that they had inherited Mr. Spoffard’s great uncle’s chocolate shop and house they jump at the chance, and move in. The next day Pierre’s (one of Mr. Spoffard’s great uncles) immortal, talking cat, Demerara takes the Spoffard twins, Oz and Lily, and their new neighbor, Caydon to the secret ministry of the unexplained (SMU), where they find out that they are witches! Once they sign the official secrets act, they find out about their first mission. Their evil great-great uncle Isadore (who is immortal) is trying to find his brother’s golden molds, so he can sell his immortality chocolate to an evil gang that wants to take over the world! Their mission is with the help of the SMU, to dive for the tram that Isadore crashed to murder his brothers, find Marcel’s mold, and transfer it to a high-security government vault. They get the mold but Isadore kidnaps Oz. They have to rescue him. Will they make it?
The Whizz Pop Chocolate Shop takes place in London, England.
One of the characters, Lily Spoffard, has dyslexia and is constantly being teased about it at her school. To make it worse, everyone thinks her twin brother, Oz is a genius. So it is a big relief to Lily when she finds out that having dyslexia only makes her a better witch.
I liked the The Whizz Pop Chocolate Shop so much I would recommend it to anyone who likes to read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
