If you want to know if your child is paying attention, quietly open a chocolate bar in the next room.

It's the tale as old as time: hiding to eat treats we don't want to share with our kids, and getting sniffed-out and outsmarted at every try.

Cheeky, heartwarming and based on a true story, a daring mom's attempt to devour a chocolate bar by herself is thwarted by the supersonic, treat-sensing prowess of her son. This charming and oh-so-familiar story celebrates the awesome, sweet-detecting abilities of children and the persistence of all who plot to bamboozle them.

Your Breath Smells Like Chocolate is the debut collaboration by writer/illustrator mom and son team, Carmen and Karlo Barnett. Curated from personal family moments, the 'fresh take on everyday life' of their stories has widespread appeal while preserving the unique perspective of the one-parent home experience. Their shared talents combine to capture the humour and authenticity of their relationship.


If you hear a package crinkling

There's no need to come and see

Never-you-mind what mommy's up to

All alone in the pantry.

"What you doing in here, momma?"

"Hey, what's that in your mouth?"

"It smells like someone's eating cookies "

"What are these wrappers all about?"

"How come your breath smells like chocolate?"

Your little eyes full of suspicion.

Why so many questions, darling?

Why the inquisition?


Your Breath Smells Like Chocolate is sure to charm readers young and old.

Great for ages 3 and up (or any age that can make doe-eyes at you while you eat a treat)
