    "Great story"
    If you could sum up The Candymakers in three words, what would they be?

    My daughter loved this story and the idea of listening to it while she followed along in the book. She really liked the reader's voice and pace.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene when the boys are spending the night in the candy factory.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending when the main character did not win the contest and the boys all become friends.

    Story
    "Fun and Fantasy"

    Another excellent book on the Sunshine State list that I enjoyed listening to with my 11-year-old daughter and she read along with the print version. It was challenging for her because, at 450 pages, it was the longest book she had ever read. But the story was a pure delight as it was told from the perspectives of the four main young characters. This provided some repetition, which was helpful in terms of comprehension. The author's imagination as she described the candy factory infrastructure made the reader/listener want to jump into the book and join in the fun. A fun book that teaches a lesson.
