candy man?

even the internet, with its vast resources, couldn't show me the way. at least, not easily.

i've been so frustrated over finding a rather eerie children's book about a candy man who had a friendly, peppermint-smelling mask to hide the fact that he was decaying underneath. i think he attempted to lure away a boy, but the boy's sister eventually figured out that the candy man was not to be trusted.

the illustrations in the book were fantastic and tim-burton/lane-smith-esque, if that helps in any way.

i would be greatly indebted to anyone who knows the title of this story. thank you!
