Alice in Wonderland meets Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in this delicious, whimsical book.

I picked this book up on New Year's Eve because I had a "Bellyache" after eating too much food. I could so relate to Peter who was helping in his grandfather's sweet shop and kept sneaking treats. Before long Peter is not feeling so well and is transported to the whimsical land of the Candonites. A place where the people look and smell good enough to eat.

I'm sure children ages 6 to 10 will enjoy this book. It would make a fun read aloud for younger kids and a good read alone for those who are a little older. It wrapped up a little too quickly for me and I never fully understood why a couple of characters acted like they did but otherwise an enjoyable, tasty read.
