Magical candy that gives kids superpowers? Sweet! The possibility of evil overtaking the world? Not so tasty. And so begins The Candy Shop War, a trilogy from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Beyonders and Fablehaven series.

Welcome to the Sweet Tooth Ice Cream & Candy Shoppe, where the confections are a bit on the…unusual side. In this start to the series, four young friends—Nate, Summer, Trevor, and Pigeon—meet the grandmotherly Mrs. White, owner of the Sweet Tooth, and soon learn about the magical side effects of her candies: Rock candy that makes you weightless. Jawbreakers that make you unbreakable. Chocolate balls that make you a master of disguise.

In addition, the ice cream truck driver, Mr. Stott, has arrived with a few enchanted sweets of his own. But what about the mysterious man in the dark overcoat and fedora hat? And why are all these “magicians” trying to recruit Nate and his friends? Who can they trust?

The mystery deepens and the danger unfolds as the four of them discover that the magical strangers have all come to town in search of a legendary, hidden treasure—one that could be used for great evil if it fell into the wrong hands. The kids, now in over their heads, must try to retrieve the treasure first. And so, the war begins…

Customer Reviews of The Candy Shop War


Rated 3 out of 5 by from An enjoyable book. A neat concept and an adequate execution by Brandon Mull
Date published: 2017-08-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Candy Shop War (The Candy Shop War #1) by Brandon Mull I wanted to love this book from the very beginning. I absolutely loved the colorful, glittery cover, and the premise seemed like such fun. And I admit, I really liked the story. However, one thing will keep me from being able to recommend this title to others: the author's use of race. It made me very uncomfortable. From the start he unnecessarily describes non-white characters by their race. In an even worse example, when the main characters take a magic candy that is supposed to temporarily change their ethnicity as a way to disguise them, one girl becomes Chinese. She doesn't have a mirror, so she feels her face and guesses that she is Asian. I just felt the author was thisclose to mentioning that she felt her slanty eyes.Ugh. That major issue aside, I did like the story and the characters.
