"For a little girl’s seventh birthday, she and her father are baking her favorite cake—chocolate! As they work, her father tells the story of her Grandpa Cacao, a farmer from the Ivory Coast in Africa. In a land where big, graceful elephants roam and the air is hot and damp, Grandpa Cacao worked in his village to harvest cacao, which is what makes chocolate. When the little girl’s cake is done baking, her mother returns home with a special visitor . . . Grandpa Cacao himself!" -- publisher
