The one problem I saw with the book is the intimidating size. My nine year old won't think twice about picking up a 300+ page book on dragons, but I've yet to get her to read The Candymakers nor The Candymakers and the Great Chocolate Chase. Because we read about the adventures from each child's prospective, the book is almost 550 pages. I have to admit, even I thought twice about reading the book when I saw the size. Let's face it, that's a lot to commit to when you're not sure if you'll enjoy it. Despite the size, the book is entertaining. My daughter enjoyed everything I told her about the book and begged me to share more. Perhaps there's hope she'll read it after all.
One thing I really enjoyed about the book was the diversity of the children and the perspectives their differences brought to the book. The kids are white, Asian, rich, poor, handicap, absent parents, helicopter parents, dead parent, and yet friends who work together.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has kids who love to read and they're not afraid to tackle big books. Or perhaps to anyone who just likes to read a good kid centered book.
*This book was initially given to me by NetGalley for an honest review, but the book was archived before I could download it. I pre-ordered the book and read it once it was published.
