Don't miss The Rise of the Guardians, soon to be a major motion picture in theaters November 2012.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 he’s 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 Earth’s core, he’s their Pooka. He’s 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!

As good as the first one, and a nice spin on the Easter Bunny. I liked the fleshing out of Pitch's character; it gave the story a much needed depth. I would have been all over these books when I was younger, and I still really like them now.
2.5 starsThe second book in the Rise of the Guardians series, very enjoyable and continues on right from where we left off. Everyone gets some little moments. We learn a bit more about Pitch, significantly about his daughter. Who else suspects that Katherine is going to have a pivotal role there? I...
This is the second book in the "Guardians" series - the next ones are due out this fall, just before the movie version of the series comes out. I DO like these books - they were written in response to a question from the author's child. "Do all the fairy tale characters know each other?" So Willia...
