The third quirky, original and deliciously dark comic adventure from the phenomenon that is Pseudonymous Bosch, author of the hilarious bestseller The Name of This Book is Secret . Synopsis - Cass, Max-Ernest and Yo-Yoji, the youngest members of the top-secret Terces Society, have been given a crucial mission: to track down a cursed Aztec tuning fork that has the power to recreate any flavour the user has ever tasted. But no sooner have they succeeded than Cass' mother is kidnapped by evil chef Senor Hugo, who demands that they hand the fork over so he can use it to create a deadly chocolate recipe for the Terces Society's sworn enemy, the Midnight Sun. Determined to rescue Cass' mum, the kids track the Midnight Sun to their sinister cocoa plantation in the jungle. But when Cass and Yo-Yoji are tricked into eating Hugo's chocolate, it is up to Max-Ernest alone to get the rescue mission back on track - and free the Midnight Sun's enslaved workforce of children...and monkeys. Bursting with inventive characters and laugh-out-loud moments, readers will be instantly hooked once more by the stylish, tongue-in-cheek story-telling of Pseudonymous Bosch.

Pseudonymous Bosch is a pseudonym, or as he would prefer to call it (because he is very pretentious), a nom de plume. Unfortunately, for reasons he cannot disclose, but which should be obvious to anyone foolhardy enough to read his book, he cannot tell you his real name. But he admits he has a deep-seated fear of mayonnaise.
