Candy starts by introducing the reader to a world where candy is banned – imagine a world like that! With candy hidden and smuggled in so that the children are still able to enjoy a piece of their favourite chocolate or sweets. Although the book is aimed at tweens who are chapter reading the book does still offer some illustrations. Carefully positioned throughout the book to add that extra interest and help the reader relate to the character and the situation they are currently facing.
