The Candy Shop War (Book 2): Arcade Catastrophe, Brandon Mull
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 met Mrs. White, the owner of the Sweet Tooth Ice Cream & Candy Shoppe, where the treats are magical as well as delicious. 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 race cars. 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 enough kids have won stamps, he’ll be able to retrieve a powerful talisman. And then anything is possible. . . And none of it good!
Nate and his friends are going to need more than candy to fight and win this war!
