Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Young
It’s the most extravagant and exciting occasion in all of Sugar Valley—princess Lolli and Prince Scoop are getting married! The entire population of Candy Kingdom is in royal wedding mode, as preparations are being made for the sweetest day ever. Our five favorite Candy Fairies are all a-flutter as each has been asked to take part in the festivities and be Princess Lolli’s royal gumdrops. Being a royal gumdrop is important as it means leading the wedding procession down the aisle, flying and strewing gumdrops along the way. Of course, as in weddings beyond these book covers, there are a few snafus along the way. Raina and Berry were quarreling over the bridal bouquet of rainbow swirled lollipops. Each had different ideas of when and how the lollipops should be harvested to ensure the freshest bouquets. Melli, the caramel fairy, was sure the Caramel Festival would be cancelled this year. Dash, the mint fairy, felt she ruined the rehearsal by not knowing which way to fly at the end of the aisle—and she just wanted to give up! But, as with all weddings, things work out just fine and everyone gets along eventually. Readers of this book in the “Candy Fairies” series will learn that even the best of friends run into bumps in their relationships, and it takes time and effort to repair and refresh friendships. A terrific story for leisure reading or for a girl’s book club to share with mothers and daughters or among friends. Reviewer: Elizabeth Young; Ages 7 to 10.

Read an Excerpt

A Royal Wedding


  • Melli the Caramel Fairy swooped down to the sugar sand beach at Red Licorice Lake. The sun was slightly above the top of the Frosted Mountains. She knew she was early for Sun Dip and her friends wouldn’t be there for a while. Sun Dip didn’t officially start until the sun started to sink behind the Frosted Mountains. Melli fluttered her wings. She couldn’t wait to share her news!

    Spreading her blanket, Melli smiled to herself. She had made fresh caramel hearts for a Sun Dip snack and displayed them on a plate. Sun Dip was her favorite time of day. The colorful sunset in Sugar Valley was the perfect time to be with friends. And Melli had the best four friends in the world.

    She didn’t have to wait too long for her Chocolate Fairy friend Cocoa to arrive. Cocoa’s golden wings were easy to spot in the late afternoon light.

    “Hi, Cocoa!” Melli called.

    “I thought I was going to be first today,” Cocoa said. She looked at her friend. “You look like you are bursting with some sweet news.”

    Melli giggled. “I am!” she squealed. “The most delicious news!”

    “Hold on!” Raina the Gummy Fairy cried from above. “I have the most scrumptious news of all!”

    Dash the Mint Fairy whizzed past Raina and landed next to Melli. “Gee, everyone is extra-early today,” she said. “What’s the great occasion?”

    “They have news to share,” Cocoa said, nodding to Melli and Raina.

    “Well, spill!” Dash said as she settled down on Melli’s blanket. “Please don’t tell me we have to wait for Berry.”

    Berry the Fruit Fairy was almost always late to events. Her friends knew this about her and always expected her to be the last one to arrive.

    “She’s probably trying on some new outfit,” Dash said. Dash was more interested in sledding and speed racing than in all the fashions that Berry liked to talk about.

    “Maybe,” Cocoa said. She looked over at Melli. “I don’t think Melli and Raina are going to be able to wait. Go ahead, Melli.”

    “Hey!” Raina shouted. “I have huge, huge news!”

    Dash pointed her wings at Melli. “But Melli was here before you. She should share first.”

    Sitting up straight, Melli grinned. “Well . . . ,” she said slowly. She wanted to savor the moment. “Princess Lolli wanted to work on a new caramel-apple dipping technique for the Caramel Moon Festival,” she said. “And she chose me to help!” Melli’s wings flapped and she lifted off the blanket. “I am going to Candy Castle in a couple of weeks so I can meet with her. Today I have been trying different kinds of caramel for the dip.”

    Cocoa flew over to her friend and gave her a tight squeeze. “I am so proud of you!” she said. She knew Melli loved the fall festival, which happened during the full moon in the tenth month of the year. One night of the year, the candy corn crop was picked under the full Caramel Moon and there was a big festival celebration.

    “You are so lucky,” Dash told her. “It’s not often that anyone gets alone time with Princess Lolli.”

    “I know.” Melli giggled. “I can’t wait.”

    Raina smiled. “That’s great, Melli.”

    Dash looked down at the plate in front of Melli. “Are these fresh caramels?” she asked.

    Melli laughed. Dash might be the smallest fairy, but she had the largest appetite. “Yes,” she replied. “I couldn’t use this batch for the dipping because the caramel was too hard, but it was perfect for shaping hearts.”

    “Yum!” Dash said. “I think I am going to love this special project of yours,” she added.

    “I will be making lots of caramel,” Melli said proudly.

    Raina stood up. “Now it is time for my news!” she exclaimed. “I’m sorry Berry still isn’t here, but you are not going to believe this announcement.”

    “Announcement?” Cocoa asked. “What are you talking about?”

    Raina took a deep breath. “I was at Candy Castle this morning,” she said. “And I saw this!” She took out a copy of the Daily Scoop. “It’s a special edition because this news is so delicious!”

    Dash, Melli, and Cocoa crowded around the newspaper that Raina laid on the ground before them.

    “Holy peppermint!” Dash cried.

    “Hot chocolate!” Cocoa exclaimed.

    Melli’s mouth just hung open. She couldn’t speak.

    On the front page of the newspaper was a large photo of Princess Lolli and Prince Scoop. The headline across the top of the paper read A ROYAL ENGAGEMENT!!

    “Can you believe Princess Lolli is engaged to be married?” Raina cooed. “Isn’t that the dreamiest thing ever?”

    “ ‘The fairy princess is going to marry the fairy prince of Ice Cream Isles,’ ” Cocoa read aloud. “ ‘Prince Scoop is the son of Queen Swirl and King Cone. There has not been a royal wedding in Sugar Valley since Princess Lolli’s parents, Queen Sweetie and King Crunch, were married. This is going to be a supersweet celebration.’ ”

    Berry had landed next to Raina, her large pink wings fluttering to a stop, just as Cocoa read the headline. Now her smile disappeared from her face. Cocoa turned to her. For someone who had just heard about Princess Lolli getting married, Berry didn’t look as happy as she’d expected.

    “Berry, did you hear Raina’s news?” she asked.

    Berry grimaced. “It’s not Raina’s news,” she said. “It’s Princess Lolli’s news!” She turned to look at Raina. “When did you hear? The engagement was announced just today.”

    Raina pointed to the newspaper. “I was at Candy Castle this afternoon and I got the latest issue. Hot off the presses!”

    Berry reached into her bag and pulled out her copy of the special-edition Daily Scoop. “I got the same news,” she said. “Only, you got to tell everyone first,” she added quietly.

    “Raina really scooped you with the news about Scoop,” Dash teased.

    Everyone laughed but Berry. She didn’t think that was so funny. She had wanted to spread the news of Princess Lolli’s wedding. A royal wedding was a very big occasion. Her head was spinning with fashion details and all that sugary royal glamour!
