Meet Candy, the cute girl who loves chocolate so much she dreams about it at night. Grab some sweets and follow Candy though a Magical Chocolate Kingdom that fills her belly and teaches her an important lesson about limits, after something very unexpected happens in the delicious empire. 

Though the vivid illustrations are sure to make your mouth water, Candy’s new understanding is the real treat even you can munch on! 

Excellent for beginner's readers and children ages 3-6. Book 1 in the Kingdom Fantasy series.

There isn't too much to say about this book except I thought it was adorable and the illustrations were super cute. My rating is purely based on the fact that I am not the target audience for this book, but for a child the rating would be more like four stars. I'm sure many kids (and adults) can relate to having candy fantasies, lol. I know me and Skittles have a thing going on, so I totally understand Candy's chocolate addiction (A castle made of skittles would be a dream come true for me too!). I also love M&M's so during a recent visit to New York City I made THREE visits to M&M World. I bet Candy would have LOVED that place, lol.

Overall, a cute book that I think kids will enjoy. I like how there is a lesson to be learned at the end and I surely felt poor Candy's pain with that belly ache. She almost made me sick with all the chocolate she consumed, lol. So if you're maybe looking for a gift for a small child who likes books, I could recommend this one. 

Nirit Littaney is a fresh, imaginative author who weaves vivid images and important life lessons into endearing stories for children. After being confined to her bed for years by an incurable illness, Nirit experienced the same triumph of spirit that many of her characters undergo in their journeys through lands near and far.

Nirit’s commitment to personal and physical healing, along with her story-like travels around the world, have inspired her to pen inventive tales for families in search of humorous, insightful bedtime stories. She writes for children in hopes of making them giggle while they also learn a lesson or two.

Today, Nirit lives in Israel with her angel of a husband, who champions each of her new books as if he were the wide-eyed child she wrote them for. When Nirit isn’t dreaming up new characters, she works as a nutritionist, medical coach, and spiritual leader. She is eager to inspire and help others with the lessons her own challenges have taught her—and what better way is there than through books?
