When four twelve-year-olds, including Logan, who has grown up never leaving his parents' Life Is Sweet candy factory, compete in the Confectionary Association's annual contest, they unexpectedly become friends and uncover secrets about themselves during the process.
The next day i locked myself in my room until i was done. at noon i unlocked my door and wanted to find more about Wendy Mass. I told everyone how i luved the book and told them to read it. I have read mostly all of her books. I love how she uses real facts but makes them even more intresting. READ IT!!!!!!!!!
the Four contestents are Logan, Miles, Philip, and Daisy. I love Daisy and Miles!!!
Read this book and you won't be able to put it down!
The Candymakers is an engaging story that is one part mystery, and what part sweet and whimsical. Mass has created a cast of strong characters, from the four main children to the adults that surround them. Even though the story is re-told four times, it never gets old because each candymaker fills in the gaps of the previous candymakers’ points of view. Mass’ style allows readers to truly understand what it is like to walk in someone else’s shoes, and the story of friendship that results from the layered stories is all the more moving for knowing the individual perspectives. Each narrator’s section opens with their cartoon silhouette in a frame, which adds to the mystery of the book since you cannot see their faces. This heartwarming mystery is sure to melt the hearts of readers and make them hunger for a piece of chocolate pizza. Recommended for grades 5 and up.
