Who doesn't love candy? But we should know that eating too many candies or any other sugary treats can get us into trouble. Marci Carrasco offers young readers a

hilarious adventure tale of a sweet-toothed girl in The Secret Candy Drawer. Phoebe has a secret sparkly drawer under her bed, where she keeps all her favorite candies, like fruity lollipops, gummy bears, and milky chocolate bars. Ever since her second birthday, Phoebe has been obsessed with candy. Phoebe is six years old and can't seem to stop eating it. Until her tooth falls out and her mom has to take her to the dentist. Phoebe is nervous with tummy tingles. But maybe Dr. Popper, with his caterpillar mustache, isn't so bad, and she might even learn a valuable lesson.

Hop aboard for a sweet and charming story in The Secret Candy Drawer. This wholesome children's tale is bound to tickle your funny bone with some uproarious storytelling by Marci Carrasco and lively illustrations by Geri Hellman. Phoebe is someone young readers will instantly be able to relate to. Her love for sweets and candies and the way she constantly thinks about them is not only funny but also teaches readers an important lesson in restraint. Sometimes, too much of a good thing can be harmful. I loved the portrayal of the dentist's office, and Hellman's artwork makes it even more immersive for the young reader. If you're looking for a fun tale, this is the perfect picture book. Recommended to kids below the age of ten."
