Candy Kingdom - The Bored Game (book 1)

by Jenny Griffith

Illustrated by Elysse Hopkins

When Ellie and her brother Zeb get dropped off for vacation at Grandma's house, they know they are in for a rough summer. No TV, raisin cookies, a very grumpy cat, and everything fun is off limits! And what's up with the secret, locked room and its closet full of forbidden games?

A board game with bright colors and sugary-looking pieces keeps calling to Ellie. When Grandma sort of gives them permission to try it, they jump at the chance. With one flick of the spinner, things get sticky. Ellie and Zeb are swept into an adventure, both sweet and scary in the Candy Kingdom!
