Beverly B, April 30, 2013 (view all comments by Beverly B)
The Candy Shop War is a fun imaginative romp with lots of action packed events, a puzzling mystery, and a sinister tone that will appeal to all middle grade readers. It almost seems to be a cross between Grimm's Fairy Tales and Alice In Wonderland. When a new candy store opens in town, Nate and his buddies jump at the chance to help out at the store in exchange for candy. Turns out candymaker, Mrs. White makes candy that gives the kids magical powers, so she can send them out on covert missions. One of the interesting twists in The Candy Shop War is the reader does not know if Mrs. White is a good guy using the kids to fight evil criminals or a bad guy using the kids to help her build her evil criminal empire. The missions become more and more blatantly illegal, but the kids decide to stay involved and solve the mystery of the candy shop lady and the people who want to stop her. Readers will be as befuddled as Nate and his friends as they try to figure out what is really going on and who Mrs. White really is. The Candy Shop War is the first in a series by the author of the wonderfully fascinating classic Fablehaven series. The Candy Shop War is well written and original, but very different from Fablehaven.

The Candy Shop War is a fantastic kids' book to be enjoyed by adults as well as children. It is full of adventure and unique, well-written characters. The great villains, plot twists and fast-paced adventure make this 400-page book a thrilling and thoroughly entertaining read.
