This book is the rhyming tale of Harley – an adorable cockapoo, and a darling little girl who is his best friend. The beautifully illustrated book details their adventure on a candy crusade in a colorful, dessert- inspired land. They set out on an adventure and end up saving the day- even winning a medal at the end!
As a mom, my favorite part of reading this to my three little ones is the rhyming pages. It’s like reading a song out loud and it keeps them listening. With lines like: “They stop in sugar heaven just as the clock strikes seven…” you just want to keep reading. When the characters have to go to sleep, I have to admit, even I was a little disappointed that the candy land adventure was over!
Lindsey Dempsey is an inspiring mom. She always dreamed of writing a creative children’s book and she set out to make her dream happen! After a successful career in marketing, she took the plunge into writing. Her goal as an author is to remind little ones to use their imaginations and get away from technology- something she agrees we all struggle with as parents these days. She rescued the real Harley from a shelter and says that he was another major inspiration for the book. Follow Lindsey here to keep up with all of the upcoming book news!
My kids were enchanted by the pictures and I have to admit I loved the creativity and play on words with all the candy fun. They wear candy cane capes (so cute!) and gumdrop hats and set out on the trail which features lollipop trees and a cupcake on every page. There are so many moments for kids to point things out and really get into the reading of this book. Sweet? Absolutely! Fun for kids? Yes!
If you are doing the “Elf on a Shelf” tradition, this would be a great book for the elf to surprise the kids one chilly morning and it would make the perfect Christmas surprise as a gift. Books and hot cocoa? Sounds perfect! Order your copy from Amazon here!
