Overview

Arcadeland is full of magical secrets as well as fun and games in the second book in the Candy Shop War series, from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Beyonders and Fablehaven series.

Nate and his friends already know Mrs. White, the owner of the Sweet Tooth Ice Cream & Candy Shoppe, where the treats are magical in addition to delicious. And now they’re introduced to Mrs. White’s brother, Mr. White, who owns a local amusement center called Arcadeland. At Arcadeland, kids can play games and earn thousands of tickets that are redeemable for one of four kinds of stamps: jets, tanks, subs, and racecars. Could it be true that these stamps allow kids to fly through the air? Or breathe underwater? Or run faster than a car?

But Mr. White is hiding a secret: when all four stamp clubs are filled, he will be able to retrieve perhaps the most powerful talisman ever. For Nate and his friends, it will take more than candy to fight and win this war!

Read an Excerpt

Roman shook his head. “I’m not supposed to go to Arcadeland again.”

“That’s why I came,” Marisa said. “I knew you’d think twice before coming back. I get that you’re not supposed to, but you have to do it. Trust me. It’s worth the risk.”

Roman heard the floor creak out in the hall. Chills raced through him. Marisa shot him a worried look. “Go,” he whispered urgently.

“Come to the arcade Saturday morning,” she whispered back, lunging toward the window. “Use any excuse. Just come.”

Second book in the Candy Shop War series the Arcade Catastrophe is like Candy Shop War on steroids. More kids gain fantastic magical powers to save the world from an even worse evil magician who has all types of freaky sidekicks. Mozag and John Dart disappear which is bad news for the magical community. A new threat appears in the form of Arcadeland. Kids and teens are spending all their time and savings to earn one of four stamps: a submarine, a jet, a racecar, or a tank. Nate and his friends use magical gum to enhance their skills and earn the stamps in record time. After earning spots in each stamp group the kids learn that the group must compete against each other in quests to the final goal—one super powerful group of four kids who will retrieve an object with undreamed of power.
