Had this not been a very short book, it would have ended up being a bit of a slog. That's not to say that this sophomore effort from Joyce is no good- it is still richly imagined with vibrant characters within a beautiful alternative magical Earthen past. The Guardians are slowly meeting and making their way to one another to provide a unified front against Pitch, the Nightmare King. This second novel highlights E. Aster Bunnymund, the owner of the second moon relic. I say it was a bit of a slog, because we really don't meet Bunnymund until halfway through a 250 page book. Pitch captures the children again, and it's up to Katherine, North, Ombric, Bunnymund, and Nightlight to set them free. We're introduced to new characters, including Katherine's goose, the egg armies, and Qwerty the caterpillar. We even get a glimpse into Ombric's childhood. This novel fleshes out the Guardians world we already know, but at the same time, indicates we still have a long way to go to finish the larger story. I will certainly continue with the next, and hopefully, it flows better than this one did.

This is shaping up to be a really good series. I'm enjoying the "alternate origin stories" for some of my childhood's heroes - Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Mother Goose, etc.

A unique interpretation of the Easter bunny. I can see how children that are entrenched in the characters associated with holidays would find these a great adventure, although the origin stories are definitely fantastical (if it were my child, I might introduce them to the true origins first, to be honest).
