Max and Ruby's Midas ISBN: 9780091765545
Wells, Rosemary
Published by Hutchinson, 1995

Max is addicted to sweet things. Caught by sister Ruby snitching cup cakes to take to bed, he must listen to her story about Prince Midas, who turned all food into sweets with his laser-beam eyes. Unfortunately, he also turned mum into a cherry float, dad into a lime jelly and little sister into a piece of birthday cake. Midas is so relieved when his family become themselves again that he laser-beams a hot fudge sundae into broccoli. Ruby leaves Max believing she has taught him a high moral lesson, but we see Max polishing off a cup cake before sleep.
