I should've read each description before buying the wholeaeries of William Joyce's books but I thought this was going to be like the sandman, jack frost, and man in the moon. Its not as much pictures and the few that are there are grayscale. Also too many works for a 5 year old. Maybe shell be more interested when she gets a little older.
I watched the movie Rise of the Guardians and how can you not love an Aussie 6'1" Bunny with boomerangs who can take on the bad guys. The bunny in this book is a bit more serious and intellectual and while I enjoyed Hugh Jackman as the Easter Bunny in the movie, I do like the more serious and wise E Aster Bunnymund character in this book. He's truly a unique Easter Bunny and I love his obsession with Egg shapes - what a way to bring humor into an otherwise ancient/wise Bunny. Oh and the whole chocolate thing is awesome - don't want to spoil it for when you read it.
When I got it in it was trashed with some type of liquid or food. I was expecting to it at least be good if not brand new. Not even the cover or the front of the book can be cleaned off by it. This was not worth this much money if it wasn't at least good or brand new.
This is the 2nd in the Guardians of Childhood book and it's where we are introduced to the Pooka that will some day become the Easter Bunny. It's a great follow up to the first chapter book which features a swashbuckling santa claus (pre-santa claus). This is such an enjoyable and quick read, a great choice to read to your kid at bedtime and you will probably enjoy it just as much as they do! I highly recommend purchasing this and saving a spot on your shelves for it.
My children hang on every word and beg for more. We just finished Bunnymund last night and immediately started on Toothiana. I'm equally enthralled and enjoying the story. I even read ahead one night after they went to bed because I count wait to know what happened. These are fantastic books!!
