It's a rainy day at home when siblings Kate and Anna are whisked away to the magical land of Candy Country, where chocolate birdies sing and cotton candy clouds dot the bluest sky you've ever seen. But something's gone sour... it's the day before Princess Sweetheart's coronation, and the Candy Crown has been stolen! Journey through Candy Country with Kate and Anna as they race to retrieve crown– and discover a few things about bravery, friendship, and forgiveness along the way.
