‘We’re lucky we can eat chocolate,’ said Uncle Leo. ‘There are places where it’s dangerous to eat chocolate.’
‘Dangerous to eat chocolate?’ I said. ‘Where?’
‘I’ll tell you about it,’ said Uncle Leo.

Uncle Leo is no ordinary uncle, he’s one-of-a-kind—he’s an adventurer, a traveller, a magician, all rolled into one. Join him as he tells Andy and his brother Graham all about his adventures in the Swiss desert—from being a
superstar in Nullistan to finding a miraculous medicine that can cure all illness; from a thrilling encounter with the people of Chocolateland, who worship all things sweet, to being turned into a living doll in the land of monsters!

Funny and endearing, the third book in the Uncle Leo series brings to life the magic of storytelling, accompanied by lively and colourful illustrations.
