Who can take a sunrise
Sprinkle it with dew
Cover it with chocolate and a miracle or two?
– Sammy Davis Jr

Get ready to delve into candy-filled worlds full of lollipop trees and chocolate rivers. Marshmallow marshlands and jellybean paved roads. Bubblegum trees and gingerbread houses. Prepare to battle peppermint witches, cotton candy monsters and sugar-fuelled squirrels.

The charity has been compiled by Raven & Drake to raise money and awareness, with all royalties to go to The Brain Tumour Charity.

Raven & Drake founder Gemma Paul had the following to say about the book:

Candy Capers came about after my cousin was seeking funding for brain tumour treatment in Germany after 3 years of fighting the disease. I wanted to do something to not only help her, but others as well, and the way I saw to do that was to create a book and donate all proceeds to The Brain Tumour Charity. I have a circle of highly talented indie authors who are always looking for something new and fun to write, but also who were passionate about helping to raise money for a cancer that is one of the biggest killers in under 40s, yet only receives 1% of national funding in the UK.

The theme was inspired by my cousin Natalie’s love of baking and the decision was to make the stories family-friendly so that the book could reach a wider audience. The contributing authors really out did themselves, not only with the quality of the writing, but also with the imagination they brought forth to create these sugar-filled candy adventures.”

Candy Capers: In Aid of the Brain Tumour Charity is available to pre-order now on ebook and will be available on paperback on 20th May.
