Halloween is here and Lexie, Bella and Maddie couldn't be happier. But why does everything feel so different? Fewer houses are decorated and fewer kids are out trick-or-treating. Still, that's not going to stop the three girls from eating as much candy as they can before their parents can stop them, even if that means fighting each other for it.
When they finally discover a haunted house worthy of their favorite holiday, they forget their parents' warnings and go in alone, only to discover that the house really is haunted, and not only that, but they've been transported to a whole different world!
A dying Sugar Fairy in one of the abandoned rooms send them on a quest to find her Sugar Baby and the magic Sugar Flower in order to save her and Halloween. If they fail, Halloween will be gone forever, and they'll never return to their family.
But with Sugar Bug attacks, the Cavity Caves where they must face their deepest fears, and giant gummy bears armed with candy cane swords, the girls aren't sure they'll make it.
Their only chance is to work together, using each of their strengths to help each other. Can they stop fighting over candy long enough? Or will they be trapped in the dying Sugar Land forever?
I love reading children's books, especially if its a book I can read with one of my own daughters :)
This book was a lovely, well written story, with adorable characters and great imagery. I especially enjoyed the portrayal of the Mom and Dad with their hand holding and kissing. It's so refreshing to see lovey-dovey parents :)
I really enjoyed reading this with my daughter, it was light and fun, but encourages kids to make healthy choices too.
The Death of the Sugar Fairy was a very sweet (pun intended!) story indeed, and gets 4 out of 5 stars from me ;]
Here's what my Miss 10 had to say about the book...
This book was really fun to read, I really liked when the girls scoffed the candy in their mouths when their parents weren't looking, thats something I would do! All the sweets and candy make me want to eat it all for myself.
The haunted house that they visited was pretty spooky, and I would be really scared to go there. But Bella, Maddie, and Lexie got pretty cool powers when they went to Sugarland, that part was really cool.
I can't wait to read the rest of this series, I really like them (The Three Lost Kids), I give this book 4 Stars ;]
|First 3 books in series|
1. What are three quirky, interesting, or little known facts you can tell us about yourself?
1: My brother was my best friend growing up, and we used to create elaborate games in our neighborhood, where we were in magical worlds and everything and everyone took on a double meaning. We could play at this for hours, and we even expanded some of these games to continue into adulthood.
2: I had many businesses as a kid. I created a museum of fossilized rocks in my grandparents' backyard and charged annual admission rates, and I even went pro with my writing once I ran out of teeth to sell to the Tooth Fairy. I'd write short stories and poetry and sell it to neighbors door-to-door.
3: I never get writer's block, ever.
3. What books do you have on your ‘to be read’ pile?
4. What have been the biggest challenges and/or surprises you’ve faced as a writer?
*I LOVE TVD, I'm a Damon girl!*
*not a bad choice...personally I'm thinking Gerard Butler!*
