Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the Sweet Tooth Ice Cream & Candy Shoppe, where the confections are a bit on the... unusual side. Rock candy that makes you weightless. Jawbreakers that make you unbreakable. Chocolate balls that make you a master of disguise. Four young friends - Nate, Summer, Trevor, and Pigeon - meet the grandmotherly Mrs. White, owner of the Sweet Tooth, and soon learn about the magical side effects of her candies. In addition, the ice cream truck driver, Mr. Stott, has arrived with a few enchanted sweets of his own.
But what about the mysterious man in the dark overcoat and fedora hat? Why are all these "magicians" trying to recruit Nate and his friends? Who should they trust? The mystery deepens and the danger unfolds as the four youngsters discover that the magical strangers have all come to town in search of a legendary, hidden treasure - one that could be used for great evil if it fell into the wrong hands. The kids, now in over their heads, must try to retrieve the treasure first. And so, the war begins....

Another great adventure from this author

Would you consider the audio edition of The Candy Shop War to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print version but this fun and adventurous story certainly lent itself to audio. Enjoyable for children and tweens - and their adults. Would be a great choice for a car trip - very lively.

What about Emily Janice Card’s performance did you like?

One of the good narrators. I'm not as fond of female narrators but my son thought this book was up there as one of the better narrations. Certainly in no way irritating as some children's book narrators can be.

Any additional comments?

Although an entirely different book if you liked Fablehaven you should like this book too.

Entertaining for grade schoolers and their parents

What made the experience of listening to The Candy Shop War the most enjoyable?

The action was quick, engaging, and clear, and the narrator did a very good job. Easy to follow the story and to connect to the characters right away which is good for a younger audience.

Any additional comments?

This was a fun listen for everyone in the family minivan - myself and my 11, 8, and 6 year old kids. Good for both girls or boys, with enough magic (and candy!) to fuel the imagination without getting nonsensical as some stories with magic tend to do. Not a five star classic along the lines of Harry Potter, but a thoroughly enjoyable book and narration.

Enjoyable listen from start to end

At first I was thinking it was going to be a Harry Potter clone and while both set within a magical world Brandon Mull has crafted something very different.

Very enjoyable and extremely well narrated.
