My son told me about this book being read in his first grade class, and he was excited about it since he loves candy corn so much, so I bought it to read at home too. Ugh. This story has not stood the test of time. It is less about a candy corn contest than about one boy trying to come to terms with the fact that one of his friends smells badly because he is a bed wetter. In the end, the book tries to teach some positive social lessons, but all throughout the story until that point, the kids are just behaving meanly towards this one character. As I was reading it with my son, I felt compelled to repeatedly stop and discuss how none of what they were saying or doing was ok, and it ruined the enjoyment of the story. I would not recommend this book at all, and I'm pretty disappointed that it was teacher-enforced reading in my son's class.

I related to the character's feelings and experiences, because Mrs. Giff is so good at getting into their hearts. Her books are very validating to children, while teaching important lessons. This story teaches about cheating, doing the right thing, and how to handle it after you've hurt a friend's feelings.

Part of what makes this such a nice and engaging story for young kids is the fact that the characters are so real and easy to relate to. My kids tried their darndest to like Jack and Annie, but those two are boring as heck -- even with dinosaurs, mummies, and pirates. Meanwhile, Giff's characters make walking down the hall seem like an adventure.

Some people have expressed concern about how mean-spirited some of the characters are. They are kids, and that's how kids are. They are not old enough in the story to understand empathy. We had a child in my son's class who was bullied and we read this book to gain some insight into how hurtful bullying can be. This book does NOT encourage bad behavior. My son came away from it admiring the kindness of one of the teachers and felt like he learned a lot

I gave this as a gift to some of my grandchildren, so I haven't read it. They wanted to guess how many candy corns were in a jar just as they did in the book and had fun doing this. Their mother let them put in a guess for reading so many pages. They told their mother this was their favorite book they had read. So for that reason I give it 5 stars.

This book was very entertaining and kept you guessing two thirds through the book how many candy corn there were. Alot is going on in the classroom and tends to jump from classwork to a sleepover - but interestingly my daughter was able to follow right along. This book is about friendship and typical child thoughts. I enjoyed this book as well as my daughter. Good read.
Got for my nine year old daughter who's in the fourth grade and I felt reading this was too young for her, but since she is struggling with reading she liked it and worked well for her.

It's about a boy, Richard, who's in the third grade and the teacher is having a Candy Corn Contest the last week of school before Thanksgiving. For every page the read from a book they get one guess at how many candy corns are in the jar. Richard, while in the classroom alone, stole three candy corns from the jar on the teachers desk and ate them. The teacher plans on the last day as a class to count how many candy corns are in the jar, but she already has the total of candy corns written on the bottom of the jar. Richard decided that he was going to change the number. Matthew his friend catches him and tells him that he can't cause the writing won't be the same, he doesn't do it. On the last day of the contest and everyone took their guesses, Emily won. Just as they were about to count the candy corn Richard tells the teacher the truth. But just before he does Matthew comes to his rescue with three candy corn to replace the ones he ate. He's teacher felt he was brave to tell her the truth.

A very cute story for your youngster, boy or girl. Easy reading with no real hard words.
