A brilliant mix of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Mysterious Benedict Society and Junior Masterchef! At the Life Is Sweet factory, four 12-year-olds gather to create the tastiest, most inventive and entertaining sweet for the annual Confectionery Association Conference. Logan, the thoughtful Candymaker’s son; Miles, the quiet boy with a plethora of strange allergies; Daisey, incredibly inquisitive and suspiciously strong for a girl her age or Philip, the unfriendly, imperious boy in the three-piece suit? The book is divided into 4 parts with each child getting the opportunity to tell their side of the story. Secrets are kept and conspiracies revealed, making for a thoroughly enjoyable, engrossing and utterly unputdownable read. This is a gripping mystery dipped in sweet candy-making details including conveyor belts, chocolate jungles, and beehives! Delicious!
Action! Adventure! Hilarity! Join Durango and his motley crew of mercenaries as they try to make a living on a futuristic, militarised Mars. This book is absolutely fantastic and had an iron grip on my attention the moment I cracked the spine! Amelia
