What to expect: Candy Fairies
Meet the Candy Fairies! This sweet new series is aimed at 6- 9 year olds (second grade being the sweet spot, but it does make a great read aloud to the 4-5 year old set.) The fairies live in Sugar Valley where jelly beans grow on vines, candy corn sprout on stalks, and chocolate eggs ripen in nests. With a touch of magic, the fairies create candy and live in Candy Kingdom under the kind and sweet ruler, Princess Lolli. The five fairies – Cocoa (chocolate), Melli (caramel), Raina (gummy), Berry (fruit) and Dash (mint) have delicious adventures (sometimes involving a salty troll who lives under the black licorice bridge.) The stories are about friendship, adventure, magic, and of course – candy!
Melli the Caramel Fairy is the star of book three. She can’t wait for the Caramel Moon Festival. The candy corn crops are all picked in the moonlight and there’s a big celebration. When Melli notices that there is something wrong in the fields, she needs her friends to help figure out who – or what – is trying to ruin the sweet treats. She will need to be clever as well as brave to save the candy corn.
