Candy Wars by Robert Cordiner

James and Emily, brother and sister, both see a small mysterious creature exit from their room into a little space of light. They went in different times so they went to different parts of a strange place. James was closest to the candy king's land while Emily was closer to the tooth fairies. James finds a candy land where all the creatures are made of candy. He soon meets the king and finds out they candy king is at war with the tooth fairies. They are fighting over the lost teeth of children. Each tooth contains some energy. The tooth fairies need it for their magic and the candy monsters need it for making new candy creatures. James attacks the tooth fairies but turns to the fairies side after his sister explained the tooth fairies' reasoning to him. With the help of a dragon, the tooth fairies defeat the candy king and corner him in a cave. They then realize that the candy king is the queen tooth fairies' son.

I thought the book was awesome. I would recommend it to all my friends. I love how the author wrote in both James' and Emily's perspectives on the war so you can see both sides of the story. I think it's really unique how she puts brother and sister on different sides of the war. We all know that brothers and sister fight sometimes but R.G. cordiner made it as if they were fighting on different sides of a war - which they were. They just did not know that the other was on the other side.
