Maggie has been saving her delivery job money for weeks to buy her best friend, Jo, a chocolate bar for her birthday. It's 1947, and while the war is over and ration tickets are gone, food prices are going up. Then it is announced that the price of chocolate is going up too—now Maggie can never afford to buy a chocolate bar! And neither can the other kids. Maggie and her friends leap into action and wage a strike against the price hike. But what can a bunch of kids do? More than you think! Based on real events, Maggie and the Chocolate War is filled with photographs and newspaper documents covering an amazing historical moment.

Michelle Mulder is passionate about books, bicycles, children and chocolate. This is her third book for children. She lives in Victoria, British Columbia.
