The Guardians: Nicholas St. North and the Battle of the Nightmare King; E. Aster Bunnymund and the Warrior Eggs at the Earth's Core!; Toothiana, Queen of the Tooth Fairy Armies by William Joyce (Hardback, 2012)
Of course you kw the Guardians. You've kwn them since before you can remember: Santa, the Tooth Fairy, The Sandman, The Easter Bunny and the others. But ...where did they come from? How did they become beloved, and worthy of holidays? And what nefarious evil doer was so awful that they were forced to band together to protect the children of the world? Answers are revealed and imaginations unfurl in this treasure trove of a boxed set. Both a standalone collectible and the ideal complement to the mesmerizing Dreamworks Animation film Rise of the Guardians, this set includes the first three titles in the Guardians chapter book series: Nicholas St. North and the Battle of the Nightmare King, E. Aster Bunnymund and the Warrior Eggs at the Earth's Core!, and the story of everyone's favourite night-time sprite, the Tooth Fairy.
William Joyce does a lot of stuff-films, apps, Olympic curling-but children's books are his true bailiwick (The Man in the Moon; Nicholas St. North and the #1 New York Times bestselling The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, which is also an Academy Award-winning short film, to name a few).
Very quick delivery. And my 12 year old daughter loved them. Finished reading all three books in three days. She wishes they had more as she wanted to keep reading. Very nicely presented., with a nice box casing around books.
