Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forget the bunny trail. E. Aster Bunnymund is on a warpath. In this second chapter book in William Joyce’s The Guardians series, sometimes you have to crack a few eggs.

Pitch, the Nightmare King, and his Fearlings had been soundly driven back by Nicholas St. North and company in the first Guardians adventure. But now Pitch has disappeared completely — and out of sight does NOT make for out of mind. It seems certain that hes plotting a particularly nefarious revenge, and the Guardians suspect he might have gone underground. But how can they find him there?

Enter E. Aster Bunnymund, the only emissary of the fabled brotherhood of the Pookas — the league of philosophical warrior rabbits of imposing intellect and size. Highly skilled in martial arts (many of which he invented himself), Bunnymund is brilliant, logical, and a tunnel-digger extraordinaire. If the Guardians need paths near the Earths core, hes their Pooka. Hes also armed with magnificent weapons of an oval-sort, and might just be able to help in the quest for the second piece of the Moonclipper.

This second book in The Guardians series is about much more than fixing a few rotten eggs — it brings the Guardians one step closer to defeating Pitch!

Review:

"Children will read and reread the story to enjoy all the nuances of this plot-driven fantasy with strong visual imagery. Joyce’s fans are sure to welcome his newest offering." SLJ

Review:

"Clever and packed with quirky, imaginative creations, lovingly illustrated by Joyce." Booklist

Synopsis:

Average bunnies may hippity hop, but E. Astor Bunnymund (aka The Easter Bunny) is more the “hi-ya” type. Highly skilled in various martial arts — many of which he invented himself — and one of the oldest magical beings on earth, Bunnymund is the architect behind an unrivaled network of tunnels, which, combined with his supernatural speed, gives him secret access to almost anyplace on the planet. And though his tunnels come in handy when it’s time to deliver mountains of candy and chocolate each year, E. Astor’s favorite place to be is an underground metropolis on Easter Island where eggs are worshiped and Bunnymund is king.

Except something is rotten in the state of Eggonooloo. Pitch, the Nightmare King, is on the attack, and if Bunnymund is going to successfully defend his royal guard of warrior eggs, he’s going to need some help. Enter Nicholas St. North (from the first Guardians chapter book adventure) and his companions MiM and Sand Mansnoozy, and the stage is set for a battle of epic proportions.

Synopsis:

Don't miss The Rise of the Guardians, soon to be a major motion picture in theaters November 2012.
