Sandi was not allowed to go through the forest alone. It could be dangerous because of the steel traps. But the path through the forest could be a shortcut from her home to school.
One evening after school, Sandi was going to be late getting home. Convinced that no one was looking, Sandi climbed the locked gate and headed through the darkened forest alone. Because of the darkness she strayed from the path and feel into a large hole. To her frightening surprise, Sandi had fallen into a well with walls made of candy. The hole turned out to be the home of a small candystick man. The well was one of the many in the forest.
Sandi was rescued from the hole by the most unusual character that was able to light himself up in darkness.
The candystick man gave Sandi a very magical candy bar to remember him by.
Sandi made a promise never to tell anyone about the candywell and about the candystick man. Sadly, the promise was broken.
The magic candy bar opened many new adventures for Sandi and others.
