Candy Shop


Product Description:

K-Gr. 3. Daniel, a young African American boy, loves being a cowboy and wears the gear even when he goes shopping with Aunt Thelma. The mixed urban neighbourhood where they live is full of small shops; in one, Daniel gets a haircut, though he protests cowboys don't do that. When they get to Daniel's destination of choice, the Candy Shop, a big crowd has gathered to read the ugly words written on the sidewalk (not shown) in front of Miz Chu's store. A cowboy, Daniel figures, would do something, so he gets a bucket and a brush and washes the words away. Aunt Thelma sends the crowd home and invites Miz Chu over for some sweet potato pie. The bright colours of the candy in the store reflect the many colours of the neighbourhood population, and the clean hues and supple lines of the pictures support Wahl's gentle message of comfort and tolerance.

About the Author

Daniel can't wait to get to the candy shop. But Angry words are scrawled on the sidewalk in front of the store and Miz Chu, the owner, is scared. Daniel wants to help--but how?


"An act of intolerance jolts a child's world in this affecting collaboration between Wahl and Wong. ... The team doesn't offer any easy, uplifting answers to bigotry, but the modest acts of kindness (Miz Chu refuses payment for Daniel's candy, Aunt Thelma invites the storekeeper home for sweet potato pie) feel both authentic and heartening."
