Do you like chocolate cake? In this story it is dangerous to eat it. Zynock and Hobdob wanted the people to eat chocolate cake so they would have power over them. Zynock and Hobdob make the people crave chocolate by giving them free chocolate chip cookies. This story tought me that being a good example is very important. All the people of Rayad thought that whatever the princess did was OK for them to do also. I think you should read this book because it's interesting.
