Peter disobeyed his Papa by stuffing himself with candy from Papa’s candy store. Peter got a bellyache and soon found himself in Maple Town home of the  Candonites. Candonites are giant living candies complete with arms, legs and facial features. Peter is taken to the Mayor’s house where he is taken care of by the Baker family. The next day, Peter goes to a parade for him and he finds out that his Best Friend Lina also got a bellyache and she is in Maple Town too! When it is time for the kids to leave they find out that two  Candonites  have disappeared! They kids then set off on a dangerous quest to find them!

I REALLY liked this book! The plot was very interesting – a kid eats lots of candy and ends up in a fantasy candy world complete with evil candy! I love the description of the Candonites. The story was a fun read. I think this book is good reading for a lot  of age and reading levels. I thought the candy world was described really well. I think it was a funny thing that the Candonites thought of vegetables as dessert! I liked that uniqueness! I recommend it to kids 7+ and young advanced readers!

Five out of five bookworms for Bellyache: A Delicious Tale!

I liked Bellyache: A Delicious Tale so much that I immediately also read  “Headache: The Hair-Raising Sequel” (published by Cat Marcs Publishing March 16, 2012)! I loved that book as much as Bellyache and also recommend it!
