Academy Award winner William Joyce’s Guardians recruit Sanderson ManSnoozy, the sleepy legend also known as the Sandman, to their cause in this fourth chapter book adventure. When the Man in the Moon brought together the Guardians, he warned them that they would face some terrible evils as they strove to protect the children of earth. But nothing could have prepared them for this: Pitch has disappeared and taken Katherine with him. And now the Guardians are not only down one member, but a young girl is missing. Fortunately, MiM knows just the man to join the team. Sanderson ManSnoozy—known in most circles as the Sandman—may be sleepy, but he’s also stalwart and clever and has a precocious ability to utilize sand in myriad ways. If the other Guardians can just convince Sandy that good can triumph evil, that good dreams can banish nightmares, they’ll have themselves quite a squad. But if they can’t…they might never see Katherine again.

Release Date: 2010-09-15
Genre: Fiction

A dream-filled nightscape like no other, Dream Weaver's Quest: The Labyrinth War by B. Lindstrom is a shockingly sublime, altogether engaging and compelling fantasy novel for young adults. First in a dynamic trilogy, this imaginative epic offers a new twist as to the fine line between what any of us are willing to accept and what we are willing to conquer. For one teen, the realm of slumber is a playground. As a brave Dream Weaver, she is a big part of what the world dreams and what it endures in the way of nightmares, but who we are in our dreams is often vastly different from who we are in real life. While fourteen-year-old Alexandra is asleep, she's a Dream Weaver with special abilities, but when she's awake she's something else entirely. Alex's grandfather warns her that a war is coming in the sleeping realm and that she's destined to become a great leader. Her spirit guide, Randall, further explains that it's up to her to travel to the Botanical Labyrinth to find what's needed to repair the fabric of the dream cloak that protects Lysandra, the guardian of dreams, after Lilith, Empress of Nightmares, damages it. With the help of Sandman, Alex maneuvers the mysterious landscapes of the darkening realm even though Lilith kidnaps her grandfather's waking spirit and holds him suspended between the living and the dead. As the nights grow longer and wearier, Alex will enlist the help of new friends and prove that in any realm-awake or asleep-the greater strength always lies in sharing.

Genre: Juvenile Fiction

The Guardians’ powers are put to the ultimate test in their final battle in this conclusion to the epic chapter book series from William Joyce. When we last saw the Guardians, they were celebrating their victory during Bright Night, the final great Battle of the Moon, where they defeated Pitch once and for all. Or so they thought. Now, many years later, the Guardians have settled into their final selves, embracing their public images and the Earth Holidays. But the world has not been without evil since Pitch’s imprisonment. First there was the World War, then The Crash which has led to what the humans call a Great Depression. All the Guardians feel the weight of these events, but Jack Frost—now half human, half of his former self Nightlight—feels it the most. Jack’s transition from Nightlight to Guardian was not an easy one. Always inclined to keep to himself, Jack has become especially isolated from the other Guardians since his transformation. Yet it is Jack who Ombric Shalazar (once a great wizard, now known as Father Time) trusts with a tremendous secret. But for Jack to fully understand this secret, he must revisit his past—and finally tell his story. Jack’s story, however, isn’t the only one to be reopened; an old enemy whose chapter we thought closed will reappear and with him bring a darkness and destruction that will test the Guardians like never before. It’s a battle of superlatives—the worse fighting the greatest, but where, oh where, is Jack?
