The Candymakers by Wendy Mass

I love those cooking contests on television! Beautiful cakes, scrumptious desserts, and those towering sugar sculptures! If you love watching those shows or cooking, this is the book for you!

The four main characters - Logan, Miles, Daisy, and Phillip - have all been selected to compete in a national candy making contest. The winning candymaker will earn $1000, but best of all - their recipe will be produced and sold around the world! Each of our competitors is very different from each other but they soon find themselves in the middle of some sticky surprises and some gooey suspense. And everything sounds delicious - Oozing Crunchorama or Neon Yellow Lightning Chew.

Wendy Mass is certainly one of our favorite authors. She also wrote 11 Birthdays, 12 Finally, and Every Soul a Star. Click here to watch Wendy Mass explain how she came to write a book all about candy! Yum!
