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.

"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.
