Description-

  • ALA Schneider Family Book Award-winning author Wendy Mass offers this tasty treat of a tale sure to appeal to any listener's sweet tooth. The Candymakers follows 12-year-olds Logan, Philip, Daisy, and Miles as each tries to invent a candy even better than the Oozing Crunchorama. But with these contestants—who can detect chocolate by touch and lift 50 lbs. of taffy as if it weighed no more than a loaf of bread—it's going to be a close race.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Move over, Willy Wonka fans, and make way for four 12-year-olds, each bent on winning the candy-making contest at the annual Confectionary Association Conference. Initially wrapped up in their own lives and motives, the four surprise themselves and the judges with the results of their creative endeavors. Mark Turetsky keeps the lengthy story moving along with brisk pacing. He uses extended pauses to depict the developing relationships of the children and the intricacies of the Life is Sweet candy factory. He gives individual voices to quirky Daisy, tentative Miles, determined Philip, and reticent Logan. His supporting characters are also distinct and add spice to a sweet mystery. A.R.

    Gr 4–7—-Imagine living in a world full of sweet, rich, delectable candy. That's what 12-year-old Logan does every day in this novel (Little Brown, 2010) by Wendy Maas. His family owns and lives at the Life Is Sweet factory. But being the descendant of a famous candy-making family has its disadvantages. Logan feels he must win the annual Confectionary Association's Best New Candy contest. He dreams of perfecting his idea for a Bubbletastic Choc-Rocket. In preparation for the contest, three competitors show up for practice at the candy factory. Miles, a boy obsessed with something from his past, likes to speak backwards. Daisy, a kind girl who likes romance novels, shows athletic prowess, and arrives at the candy factory on a horse. Philip isn't afraid to be abrasive or secretive. It's not long before strange things start happening, and it becomes apparent that there is a spy among them. This delicious story unfolds through the four different points of view of the contestants. Clever and fun, each character contributes to the adventure with a flawed but likeable uniqueness that is full of surprises. Mark Turetsky does a flawless job of creating different voices for each character. Fans of Roald Dahl's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" (1964) and mysteries will be charmed by this delectable treat.—"Robyn Gioia, Bolles School, Ponte Vedra, FL"
