Synopsis

The Sandman Guardians of Childhood by William Joyce

Of course you know the Guardians of Childhood. You've known them since before you can remember and you'll know them 'til your memories are like twilight: Santa, The Tooth Fairy, The Sandman, The Easter Bunny and the others. But...where did they come from? How did they became beloved, and worthy of holidays? Wonder no more, because William Joyce is here to answer your questions. This, the second book in the Guardians picture book series, will provide the background, the history, the life of Sanderson Man Snoozy. You may be more familiar with his nickname-the Sandman-but you are certainly privy to his legend, to his ability to control and manipulate sweet dreams...for those who deserve them.

Reviews

A pleasant nighttime read, and the illustrations of tattooed mermaids, heroic constellations, and the golden Sandy himself are worth poring over time and again. Grown-ups and children alike will savor this book's rich, old-fashioned charms.

About the Author

William Joyce does a lot of stuff-films, apps, Olympic curling-but children's books are his true bailiwick (The Man in the Moon; Nicholas St. North and the #1 New York Times bestselling The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, which is also an Academy Award-winning short film, to name a few).
