In the town of Spring Haven, four children have been selected to compete in the national candymaking contest of a lifetime. Who will make a candy more delicious than the Oozing Crunchorama or the Neon Yellow Lightning Chew?

 

Logan, the candymaker’s son, who can detect the color of chocolate by feel alone?

 

Miles, the boy allergic to rowboats and the color pink?

 

Daisy, the cheerful girl who can lift a fifty-pound lump of taffy as if it were a feather?

 

Philip, the suit-and-tie-wearing boy who’s always scribbling in a secret notebook?

 

This sweet, charming, and cleverly crafted story, told from each contestant’s perspective, is filled with mystery, friendship, and juicy revelations.

The Candymakers and the Great Chocolate Chase

By Wendy Mass

Genre: Juvenile Fiction

Curriculum Subject: Adventure: Mysteries, Science: Inventions, Personal Development: Friendship

Grades: 3-7

 

It has been a few months since the Harmonicandy was chosen as the winner of the nationwide candymaking contest. Forever changed by the experience, Logan, Miles, Philip, and Daisy have returned to their regular lives. But when presented with the chance to go on tour to promote the new candy, they each have very different reasons for hitting the road.

 

The stakes are a lot higher than they thought, however, and a decades-old secret is revealed. In this action-packed adventure, the four friends embark on a journey full of hidden treasures, imaginary worlds, rivers of light, a map of awe, a sky of many colors, and one very small cat who thinks he’s a dog.

 

And candy.

 

LOTS and LOTS of candy.

 

They’ve already learned to trust one another. Now they’ll have to trust themselves in order to face what lies ahead and save what really matters.
