Four months have passed since Philip Ransford the Third won the annual candy making contest with the help of his fellow contestants: Logan, Miles, and Daisy. Now, the four friends are about to embark on a nation-wide tour to promote the new chocolate bar, The Harmonicandy. But when the first Harmonicandy comes down the conveyor belt, something's very wrong.
In a race against time, Philip and his friends must find the elusive cocoa beans needed for the recipe, or else they'll have to forfeit their win to the runner up. Can they find what they're looking for in time?
Breathtaking action, hidden treasures, and lots of candy will have readers craving this delightful sequel.

Wendy Mass won the ALA Schneider Family Book Award for her first young readers' novel, A Mango-Shaped Space, about a girl with the fascinating condition synesthesia. In Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life, a boy embarks on a life-changing journey. In Every Soul a Star, three very different kids are brought together by a solar eclipse; and in The Candymakers, four kids enter the contest of a lifetime. The Space Taxi series sends a boy and a talking cat on adventures to distant planets, and the Willow Falls books (beginning with 11 Birthdays) add a dash of magic into a small town. Wendy lives in New Jersey with her family.
