Have you ever dreamed of working in a candy factory?  The dream comes true for four twelve-year-old kids who are chosen to participate in a national contest at the Life Is Sweet Factory, where they are each supposed to come up with a brand-new candy.  Logan, the Candymakerís son, yearns to make friends and win his parents' respect.  Miles's parents want him to compete to forget a tragic accident in his past. Daisy, who is a spy, is in the contest as part of a special mission.  Philip scribbles in his notebook every day and wants to win the contest at all costs.  Each contestant narrates his or her own story in his or her own section of the book.  When the secret ingredient at the factory goes missing, these four become involved in a mystery that will keep you turning the pages, all the while laughing out loud at the zany humor.  Read The Candymakers by Wendy Mass if you are interested in sweet and mysterious treats!  (Pennsylvania Young Readerís Choice Awards Program Booktalks 2012-2013)
