This is a great sequel to the first book, The Candymakers. It depicts the same for loving characters (plus AJ:) on a road trip to help promote the Harmonicandy......but things get complicated with the original Harmonicandy's ingredients and a whole hunt to uncover the mystery. Along the way, new friends are made, old relationships mended, and a great adventure. I love how other worlds such as the Chronicles of Narnia and Wendy Mass's other pieces were added to this book, but it really wasn't necessary. I liked how new secrets are uncovered and more past events are brought up to the present. The characters (I think) matured more; but Daisy's fun character got kind of lost and Philip's musical ability did not shine as mush as it did in the first book. Also, I regret to say that this book dragged a little too slow to get to the climax and main point. But it was a great continuation that I was glad to finally have after waiting so many years:) Thanks Wendy!!! ( )

Longer and lots more going on than the original Candymakers book, the sequel brings Logan, Miles, Philip, and Daisy back together for a road trip during which they hope to solve several different mysteries.

It begins with a box that arrives for Logan, full of his grandfather's old papers. Logan gives the box to Miles, who loves that sort of thing, and Miles finds a "Map of AWE" - and maybe also proof that Samuel Sweet obtained the special cocoa beans for the Magic Bar in a not-completely-aboveboard way.

The road trip's original purpose was to promote the Harmonicandy, but now the Harmonicandy might never be made at all, and the kids have new questions to answer: Does Daisy have a brother (and is it AJ?)? Does Philip have a grandmother? Does Miles have secret relatives as well? Where did the special blue beans come from? With AJ as chaperone in the technologically tricked-out spy RV, they are going to find out.

"Not all maps are treasure maps," Miles said as patiently as possible. "Most just show you where you are, or how to get there."
Philip shrugged. "This one doesn't seem to do either of those things." (343) ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316089192, Hardcover)

It has been a few months since the Harmonicandy was chosen as the winner of the nationwide candymaking contest. Forever changed by the experience, Logan, Miles, Philip, and Daisy have returned to their regular lives. But when presented with the chance to go on tour to promote the new candy, they each have very different reasons for hitting the road.

The stakes are a lot higher than they thought, however, and a decades-old secret is revealed. In this action-packed adventure, the four friends embark on a journey full of hidden treasures, imaginary worlds, rivers of light, a map of awe, a sky of many colors, and one very small cat who thinks he's a dog.

And candy.
LOTS and LOTS of candy.

They've already learned to trust one another. Now they'll have to trust themselves in order to face what lies ahead and save what really matters.
