Today's book is The Candy Shop War by Brandon Mull.
Disclaimer: No Disclaimer. I actually bought this book.
I read and thoroughly enjoyed all of the Fablehaven books. So, while waiting for the fifth one to come out (which I hear is in a few weeks), I decided to invest in Mull's other book.
The story revolves around four children who become secret agents for a candy-maker. This candy gives them magical powers while they are eating it, and it's also delicious. Yum. But then they realize they might be helping the wrong side. A bunch of chaos and mild, magical violence ensues while the children try to set things straight.
Mull is an excellent writer. There are no plot holes and the story is fun. Not quite as gripping as Fablehaven, but still very enjoyable. I highly recommend for the younger readers.
I'm going to have to give it a B.
A = Buy this book NOW
B = Buy this when you can
C = Check it out from the library
D = Don't bother reading it
F = Burn it
