A true treasure for all adults smart enough to keep their inner child! Full of zany characters and candy just waiting for the picking, straight from the trees and fields. Accept no substitute! Insist on Gum Drop Island Candy! (Because bad things happen when imitation chocolate is smuggled in. Just Ask I. B. Nosey.)

What would the world be without chocolate? Don’t think I want to know. This was such a cute story. Loved the name of the characters. The main character is never given a name. Must have been writers block. (LOL) What a imagination! I found the story very enjoyable. Gum Drop Island ( what’s that music where is it coming from). Wonder where it comes from read the story you will be giggling. All kinds of things going on here. You even will get to meet I.B. Nosey. He is one awesome character. Kids will love this book.

A cast of quirky characters leave Gum Drop Island to solve a mystery. They set sail for Moldy Corners on the Good Ship Sugar Daddy, having no idea what they will find when they arrive.

Mort The Mothball Millionaire charges exorbitant fees for his mothballs. It takes groves of them to protect the mouthwatering goodies that grow on Gum Drop Island--those delectable confectioneries found on bushes and trees. Licorice twists, lollipops, candy canes and chocolate bars, to name a few, thrive on mothballs.

Mort the Mothball Millionaire claims he is forced to raise prices due to a mothball shortage. But what...or who...has caused the shortage?

Raucous music assaults the crews' eardrums each time someone says, "Gum Drop Island." Who is responsible for this clanging noise that seems to emanate from who knows where? And is there a connection between the ear-splitting music and the mothball shortage?

Slimy mold drips from trees as the crew steps from the ship onto the shores of Moldy Corners. A bevy of buzzards greet them on their trek toward Mort's Mansion. When the spooky buzzards swoop toward the crew, they scream and scatter. But this does not deter them from their quest.

Yuri O' Wise-guy-eh? leads the gang of unusual characters on their mission. You will meet Cuddles, who protects her little winged creatures; Moose, who seems to have a constant chocolate ring around his mouth; Taz, the woman from "down under" who still walks on her hands; and Heathcliff The Opossum,(who only speaks Possumese) but is the detective hired to crack "The Case of the Mothball Shortage."

M.M's. story is filled with adventure, mishaps, and loveable characters whose witty dialogue and misadventures kept me chucking and turning the pages. One minute I laughed, the next minute shivers raced up my spine.

I highly recommend this book to everyone aged nine to ninety. You won't be disappointed.

This author knows how to carry a plot and build it. I look forward to reading more stories by M.M.
