One rainy night, a man rode his horse up to the door of an empty store. He stopped his horse and smiled. "This will do just fine," he said.
The man worked hard to fix up the old store, "Pam! Pam! Pam!" went his hammer. "Snish! Snish! Snish!" went his saw.
The people in town did not know who the man was. Nobody knew what he was building. The grown-ups just watched ... and waited. The children just wondered ... and wished!
One day a little girl named Lucy knocked on the door of the mysterious store.
"Hello," she said. "My name is Lucy. Do you need some help?"
"Can you unpack boxes?" the man asked.
"Yes, I can do that," answered Lucy.
She came in and saw dozens of boxes, barrels, and crates.
Lucy opened the first box. She picked up something wrapped in paper. It was round and heavy. She almost dropped it!
When she unwrapped the paper, she saw a glass jar.
Lucy unpacked another glass jar. Then another ... and another. Fat jars, tall jars, thin jars, round jars.
"Now what shall we put inside the jars?" the man finally asked.
Lucy wished a secret wish! She did not tell what it was. She waited to see what the man would say.
Then he took the top off a big box. Inside it, Lucy saw lollipops, chewing gum balls, peppermint sticks, taffy and her favorite candy-gumdrops!
Lucy'ssecret wish had come true.
The man laughed when he saw Lucy's eyes light up.
"Welcome to John Sonneman's Candy Store," he said. "And now, Miss Lucy, we must fill all these jars with treats."
So they worked and worked until all the jars were full of colorful candy.
In the very last crate, Lucy saw a candy she had never seen before.
