It's been many years since I've read a kids book from start to finish. I'd purchased "Candy Wars" to read with my 7 year-old granddaughter. Her first visit we took turns reading. She managed her part without much help from this old geezer. By the time of her next visit she was on her own, I'd finished without her.

At its heart this is the story of a fantasy land where tooth fairies live when not slipping a few bucks under your pillow. Yes, fairies, it's too much work for just one. When little brother James disappears his sister Emily manages to follow him into the land of the tooth fairies. The fantasy land R.G. Cordiner has created will spark a kid's imagination while Emily and James encounter a castle made of teeth, chocolate-arrow-shooting snowmen, a toothless dragon, and more. Buried inside the adventure are a few lessons they might not realize they've learned about the evils of war and importance of family.

NOTE: This review was originally published in Red Adept Reviews on May 3, 2011.

Overall: 4 stars

Plot/Storyline: 4 stars

When James and Emily tried following a tooth fairy, they were transported through a portal into a magical world inhabited by tooth fairies, jelly monsters, chocolate archers, marshmallow soldiers, dragons, and other assorted creatures. They also found themselves smack dab in the middle of a war between the Candy King and the Tooth Fairy Queen over control of the teeth being reaped every night by the tooth fairies. With Emily on the tooth fairies' side and James helping to advise the Candy King, the stage was set for a decisive battle.

As with most children's fantasy books, the story was pure nonsense, but it had enough suspense and conflict to make an interesting tale that would keep younger children's attention.

With 189 Kindle pages, the story was novelette-length.

Characters: 4 1/2 stars

James and Emily were the main two human characters. They were brother and sister with a typical love-hate relationship.

The tooth fairies and the Candy King's minions were cute characters. Delinda the Dragon and Simur the Phoenix were on the tooth fairies' side in the war, and even James and Emily's cat "Muffins" got into the act.

Actually, my favorite human character was James and Emily's schoolteacher, Mr. Rotter. His cruel and unusual punishments reminded me a bit of Count Olaf in the Lemony Snicket A Series of Unfortunate Events series. I would like to have seen more of him.

Writing style: 4 stars

Candy Wars is a children's book, and the writing style and vocabulary were appropriate for young children to read, or to have adults read to them.

My 13 and 8 year old loved it. I read it first then handed it over to them for them to share. For a whole week the kids talked about nothing else but Candy Wars. That in itself is enough for me to recommend this book.

I like the book for the theme. Seeing how Emily goes to the fairy world to help find her brother whom everyone else forgets about. I like how the boys picked up that siblings should stick together and take care of each other no matter what.

It was a great book for all of us to read and will save it for my youngers ones for later.

This was a fun book! My son's name is James (a character in the book), BUT it's my 7-year-old daughter who has been reading this with me. When reading this, I heard lots of little girl giggle. She really thought this was funny, and it is quite silly, there's jelly monsters, snowball fights and of course, the chocolate archers (no really!).

It also has a bit of a cautionary slant to it as well. Maybe not caution but perhaps a lesson that you should treat your siblings well or that no matter what, you'll always be brother/sister. I am interested to see if she gets to that once she gets to the end (I've read ahead of her). I'm sure she will though.

I will admit that I thought this book was going to be over her reading level at first, but while it was a challenge for her in some spots, overall she got it and, more importantly, she's asked to read it.

For me, this was a very cute story. I enjoy a good kid's story and this one was really a lot of fun! It does make me wonder though... what else does this author have up there in his head? This was a pretty unique story. It felt kind of like an evil version of the nutcracker (and their sugar plum fairies) crossed with a really ticked off gingerbread man. But let me be clear... it's NOT scary.

This is a great great chapter book story for the 6-13 year old set. Heck, anyone really. I'm a 35-year-old woman and I loved it!

Candy Wars has been circulated through my entire home. So far a 10, 9, 7, and 6 year old have all taken turns reading it. It's very cute and an easy fun read. Definitely a good way to get young readers reading.

A Kid's Review on August 29, 2013
Format: Paperback
Do you like Fantasies, Fairytales, and Adventures? If you do, you will like the book "The Candy Wars" by R.G. Cordiner. After losing a tooth, the main characters, Emily and James travel to the land of Tooth Fairies and Candy Creatures. Emily is sent to a castle made of teeth with tooth fairies and a queen. James is sent to a candy castle with candy creatures and a king. To find out about James and Emily's journey, read this adventures book. I gave this book 4 stars because it was fun, interesting and it had a surprising falling action. I didn't give this book a 5th star because I like realistic books more than fairytales. This book is better for children ages 6 to 9 because the content is for younger readers.
