A pivotal event for the United States of America was its Civil War in the 19th century, but understanding its complexities is daunting to both adults and children. Cocoa and Company offers a simple version of events in a story even beginning readers can understand. It is told in a way that will captivate older elementary school readers, as well as parents who read the book aloud for younger children.


Pairing whimsy with historical fact, as well as fun with a social conscience, Borges has dared to take on the entire timeframe of a bloody, costly war. Here is a story parents and teachers will embrace as a teaching tool, especially because it is an engaging tale. Children will enjoy the antics and bravery of a boxer dog, a Chihuahua, a Labrador retriever and a border collie. These lovable characters are certain to live in the minds of readers for a very long time.

Antonion Borges’ far-ranging curiosity and inventiveness belie his formal training. Having graduated from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary Department of Harvard Medical School as well as the Sawyer School in Radio and Television Broadcasting, he works in the field of ophthalmology and pathology. His research into the history of the American Civil war is paired in this work with his ability to present an imaginative history that will engage young readers. This and his previous books that look far into the future testify to the truth that he is a modern version of the Renaissance Man.
