  • REVIEWDo not read this book if you are hungry Don t say I didn t warn you The Candymakers is a clever middle grade book about four children in a national candy making contest Yummy The book begins from Logan s perspective He actually lives in the candy factory, and his account of things is pretty nuts and bolts Ah, but then the point of view changes to the other kids Miles, Daisy, and Philip That s when things really get interesting With each perspective, I learned something new I also realized [...]


  • This book reminds me why I always tell fellow readers to give young adult books a chance The only complaint I have about The Candymakers is due to the fact that these books are unfortunately targeted towards young adult readers rather than adults that are young at heart Guess which category I fall into On that note, the only real problems I had were the same reasons this was not targeted to me Again, unfortunately The sentences were concise and simple then I believe necessary for teens there wa [...]


  • It s time for the annual candy making competition At the Life is Sweet candy factory, things are definitely much exciting Four 12 year olds with their own stories to tell Logan the Candymaker s son, Daisy a girl with a huge secret, Miles an innocent thoughtful boy with a hidden past, and Phillip a young contestant seeking revenge As the Confectionary s Association s Annual Convention goes nearer, the contestants find themselves all facing an unlikely turn of events A book of unlikely friendship [...]


  • Important note I got a copy of this at ALA in June, passed it to my 11 year old, and she really enjoyed it That s a far better recommendation than mine or any other grownupsThis is being compared to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, in which 5 kids win a contest to tour a magical candy factory But here 4 kids are at a wonderful but very non magical candy factory to COMPETE in a contest, and we see the 2 days they spend together in turn from each child s point of view and each child s voice is c [...]


  • The Candymakers is a well written book by Wendy Mass.The beginning of this book is retold 4 different times, each for one of the characters perspectives Logan, Miles, Daisy and Phillip are finally 12, old enough to enter the Candy making competition, something they ve been waiting to enter for a long time This book is fun, and great for readers with a sweet tooth



  • I picked this up at ALA with much excitement It was described to me as Willy Wonka meets Mysterious Benedict Society and I liked at least one of Wendy Mass s previous books As I started in on it, I was pleased to find decent jokes, a quick ish pace, and lots of mouth watering candy descriptions The structure of the book is interesting too Each of the four main characters Logan, Miles, Daisy, and Philip narrate separate sections of the book So after we ve read Logan s POV, we go back in time and [...]


  • I absolutely loved this book I was worried that it would be too close to Charlie and Chocolate Factory but it s very different The story is fun and unexpected and the characters are totally loveable.


  • Actual rating 4.5Too many feels Phillip is my favorite character Eat candy while you read this book ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS EVER I know I m being incoherent, but I can t even with this book.


  • This book is about 4 kids, Logan, Miles, Daisy, and Philip They all enter a candy contest and the winner s candy will be made in a factory and sold This book makes my mouth water and is just a must read for candy lovers Great book by Wendy Mass.


  • This book was clever and fun but slow I forced myself through most of it I might have liked it if I were younger It was imaginative and creative, especially with the 4 different POVs, but the pacing drove me crazy I liked Daisy and Philip s POVs the best, though it took me several pages to realize Daisy wasn t just recounting a dream, but reality I really wanted to like this one, but I couldn t get into it Logan was a little too perfect It didn t get interesting until it got crazybut perhaps th [...]


  • Haven had been asking me to read this book for many months She loved it and was sure that I would I finally got a kindle and it was the first full book I read on it, since it was already on our account The first section was not what I wanted to read Think Charlie and the Chocolate Factory meets Mary Poppins very heavy on the candy and the adjectives, low on plot content I threatened to Haven to stop reading numerous times Heck, I don t even like candy for real I don t She begged me to hang on to [...]


  • This is a witty book abut the most famous candy factory in a fictional world Many children are competing to make the best new candy invention This is a ritual which has been used before to find the next owner of the candy factory Nate, the previous owners son, is determined to make the best candy But will he This is a great book, I personally loved it If you enjoyed this book, I would recommend the book Escape from Mr Lemoncello s Library or The Candy Shop War



  • There is a huge competition that kids can enter, in this competition the kids have to create a new kind of candy, if they win they then their candy distributed around the world 4 of the kids that are in this competition are Logan, the candy makers son, Phillip, who is very rude, miles, who always has a back back with mystery contents, and daisy, who seems hugely happy and bouncy They meet up at the factory and all of them ,except Logan, despise Phillip immediately One night they all secretly go [...]




  • 4.3 5Saya butuh waktu cukup lama untuk melewati bagian bagian awalnya, yang bagi saya agak membosankan dan terlalu Charlie merujuk pada Charlie and the Chocolate Factory karya Roald Dahl Tapi setelah berhasil melewati bagian pertama itu, saya mulai tenggelam dalam ceritanya The Candy Makers ini layaknya sebuah puzzle karena dikupas dari berbagai sudut pandang tapi pada akhirnya semua merujuk pada satu kesimpulan yang sama, membentuk satu cerita utuh ketika setiap keping telah diletakkan di tempa [...]


  • Four children have been chosen to compete in a national competition to find the tastiest confection in the country Who will invent a candy delicious than the Oozing Crunchorama or the Neon Lightning Chew Logan, the Candymaker s son, who can detect the color of chocolate by touch alone Miles, the boy who is allergic to merry go rounds and the color pink Daisy, the cheerful girl who can lift a fifty pound lump of taffy like it s a feather Or Philip, the suit and tie wearing boy who s always scrib [...]


  • OH MY GOSH I LOVED THIS BOOK LOVED IT Wendy Mass is definitely one of my favorite authors, and this book blew me away It s really creative because you get to read the story from each of the characters perspectives, just like her book Every Soul A Star And I will admit, at the very beginning I was a bit bored, but everything changed after I started reading from the other characters points of views I just grew to love each character, and my views of them changed so much I ended up thinking of the [...]


  • Enjoyable Candy factory, food galore, sweetness overload, quirky friendship and some juicy puzzles Really my kind of middle grade book The unique part of this book is the way Wendy Mass wrote the story We were given the opportunity to see the meaningful two days of candy making competition from different of views of the four main characters Logan, the son of the Candy Maker Miles, the depressed kid who likes to talk about the afterlife April, the mysterious girl who has the most wonderful occupa [...]


  • Kisah yang sangat manis Lebih manis daripada permen manapun di dunia Awalnya, saya mengira ini adalah novel fantasi Ternyata saya salah Novel ini lebih mengarah ke fiksi ilmiah Tepatnya literatur anak dengan tambahan sedikit fiksi ilmiah Cerita dalam novel ini tentang empat anak yang mengikuti kontes membuat permen tahunan saat usia dua belas tahun Novel ini menceritakan kisah empat orang anak dari sudut pandang masing masing dan tentunya tiap tokoh saling berhubungan Dari bagian awal hingga per [...]


  • This book was so much fun Beware, it gets you craving chocolate This book is about 4 kids that want to win a confectionery contest for the most craveable candy the nation has seen The book switches from the perspective of Logan to Daisy to Miles and finally to the perspective of Phillip A mystery slowly unfolds to anyone s surprise All of the characters have different personalities and talents, making the culprit of the crime hard to fathom I would recommend this book to anybody from 10 to 14, b [...]


  • The name made me assume this book would be a light, simple confection My 10, 8, and 5 year old boys listened to it with me, and we were all pleasantly surprised by it not only the plot surprises, but it s depth For a book I ve never heard of elsewhere, it is remarkably good Dare I say better than Willy Wonka The Chocolate Factory Yes, I think so We finished it a few months ago, and my boys are already asking to hear it again.


  • So much than I thought it was going to be a lot of fun Lots of twists, red herrings, great characters, and a candy factoryof course it s a fun read The plot and details are fantastic in the sense that they are scarcely believable , but the fun makes up for it Points too for the structure each character telling their experience of the story allows for layers that are fun to peel back as you read it over again Fun, fun, fun Sweet Fun.


  • gosh, this book i loved when i was younger looking back though it is so so cringey it s full of steryotypes and such



  • The Candy Makers was a fun book full of sweet surprises at every corner In this novel, 4 kids compete in a contest at a candy factory One of the contestant s Logan father owns the candy factory and won the contest when he was kid and so did Logan s grandfather Logan feels obligated to win it since he will be the next Candy maker The book shows the perspective of all 4 of the kids and their motives of being at the factory Each point of view of the children shows their thoughts and feelings for th [...]


  • I saw this book sitting on the shelf at a book fair and texted the title to myself so I could check it out later I did and I liked it We have read several Wendy Mass books, and most of them I have really enjoyed She kept it real on this one, and I really appreciated it Fun little mystery, lovable kids, happy little camaraderie and yet some of the parents DO even make an appearance and add in on a bit of the mystery Sometimes there are NO parents in these books, like, they just don t ever appear, [...]
