The Farnsworth's family car breaks down on a road trip through France in a small village amidst the magnificent landscapes of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. Far from home with no friends or family on whom to call, they discover a big, old country manor at the end of a tree-lined street blanketed with olive groves and vineyards. Drawn by the strongest and most delicious aroma known to mankind, Ma, Pa, Avery, and Olive venture into the magical estate to discover a whole new universe of fantasy and fun. Their host, Monsieur Claude Croissant, known to many as Le Chef de la Vie (The Chef of Life), invites them to stay for the night and treats them to the most magnificent meal ever to touch their lips. Whether salty, savory, sweet or sour, his flavors intoxicate all. Later that night, after it appears that all have gone to bed, Olive and Avery discover a world unlike any they've seen. A world filled with dancing animals, delectable desserts, and adventures beyond their wildest dreams. Was it a dream? The answers are all in The Story of Au Fudge, where anything is possible...

Born in Washington, D.C., Kimberly Jacobs Muller was inspired by her three daughters to write her first book, The Adventures of Fifi & Noni. Her second book, Last Night I Swam with a Mermaid, took on an environmentally-conscious tone and won the award for Best Children's Book in 2013 at the Los Angeles Book Festival and has inspired a campaign to help save our oceans. Kimberly is excited that her most recent passion project, The Story of Au Fudge, reveals an enchanted world which can even be experienced in person at Au Fudge restaurants. Her mission is to reach children through as many touch points and learning moments as possible, and help them to continue to believe in magic.Review:
Au Fudge is one of those classic magical tales that you don't come by often nowadays. The characters and images are so memorable and the story leaves you only wanting more. I hope this leads to a long series of books! --Joseph
There are children's books, and then there are children's books that from the first page somehow manage to transport you back to your own childhood, and the exquisite memory of cherished books read over and over. Au Fudge is one of these elusive books. A timeless tale of goodwill and fantasy, with characters literally good enough to eat, every page is as rich in story as it is illustration, and sure to appeal to the child in all of us. Just be prepared to want a snack after... --Devin Murphy
