In The Candymakers,
four unique kids are brought together at the Life Is Sweet candy factory to compete in
making a delicious new candy. While the basic premise may sound familiar, this story
is an entirely new experience! Almost nothing about the kids is as it seems at first
glance, and the surprises keep coming as the mystery unfolds.
Written in first person
narrative from each of the four kids' perspectives, each new section in the story demonstrates
how important it is to see things from another person's point of view. The kids learn together
about friendship, overcoming adversity, appreciating differences, and forming community.
The rich description of setting and the amazing candy descriptions will keep your imagination
engaged (and your stomach growling!)
