No Monkeys, No Chocolate
No Monkeys, No Chocolate is a new nonfiction title by Massachusetts writer, Melissa Stewart [J 633.74 STE]. It tells of the interdependence of species in South America, in this case, monkeys, cocao (the seeds, called beans, of which go into making chocolate), and a whole host of other insects and plants.
Ms. Stewart has developed a marvelous online page explaining the path No Monkeys, No Chocolate took from idea to physical book. You can view the multi-leveled timeline here.
To learn how we get chocolate from cocoa beans, here's a short video on the process of making chocolate.
