Thank you Sally Cronin from Smorgasbord for inviting Michael and I over for a visit and to share a story about Sir Chocolate.

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

To delight us this morning, Robbie and her son, MichaelCheadle share their delightful fondant characters in another adventure. This is followed by Michael’s original story that inspired the poem.

Sir Chocolate and the stolen moon and stars

By Robbie and Michael Cheadle

It was an unusually clear and frigid night;
When instantly, out went all the light;
The moon and stars that usually shone;
Where suddenly, and most extraordinarily, gone.

Villagers thronged the street, gazing in shock;
Others hid inside and their doors did lock;
We need some help, they did declare;
To help us resolve this dark nightmare.

Sir Chocolate, our hero, quickly came to the fore;
Little knowing what this adventure held in store;
The stars and moon were very far away;
He prepared to set off the very next day.

  1. Congratulations, Robbie! I love how you and Michael share the passion of writing and creating, together.

    BTW, I nominated you for the Liebster Award. The info is on my blog if you’d like to run with it. If not, no worries. Have a “sweet” day 🙂

    1. Thank you, Jacqui. It wasn’t planned at all. Michael and I just discuss ideas from time to time and sometimes he asks to write them down. From there we then work on a rhyming verse story and the fondant illustrations. Sometimes the artwork comes first and we think of a story to go with the creation.

      1. You both sound exceptional. And I’ll say, I teach a lot of kids K-8. By the time they get old enough to do what Michael does, they have lost interest in collaborating with parents. Kudos to both of you!
