Ein Märchen über die Magie der wahren Freundschaft Als sein bester Freund spurlos verschwindet, ist der sechsjährige Billy untröstlich. Er spürt, dass sein Lieblingskuscheltier Ollie in großer Gefahr sein muss. Obwohl es Nacht ist und gegen alle Regeln verstößt, macht er sich auf den Weg, um Ollie zu retten. Und es ist höchste Zeit, denn im gleichen Moment, nur zwei Kilometer entfernt, kämpft Ollie gegen eine ganze Armee von verbitterten, vergessenen Kuscheltieren, die niemand lieb hat. Viele Kinder (und ihre Eltern) kennen Robert Missler als die Stimme von Grobi aus der 'Sesamstraße'. Dass er aber ganze Scharen von Puppen tanzen lassen kann, beweist er in diesem plüschigen Spielzeug-Abenteuer. Der Komponist Henrik Albrecht lässt diese Zauberwelt musikalisch erklingen.Show more
Beware a tooth fairy queen scorned in this, the third volume of Academy-Award winner William Joyce's The Guardians series. There's a lot more to this tooth-swiping sprite than meets the eye!Now that the back story of Nicholas St. North has been told, and the mysteries of E. Aster Bunnymund have been revealed, we can permit you to meet one of the most riveting, mysterious Guardians of all time: the Tooth Fairy. Do you want in on a few of her secrets? Well-she can spin herself into a multitude of selves, all depending on nightly teeth-placed-under-pillows rates. And her diminutive size is not at all indicative of how fierce a warrior she can be-Pitch, the Nightmare King, that nefarious villain and the Guardians' nemesis, who loathes all things good, has no idea what he's up against. And be forewarned: If you try to stay up to spy on her nocturnal pursuits, there'll be Spell to pay. We present to you Her Serene Royal Highness, Toothiana, Queen of the Tooth Fairies, The third Guardian.Show more
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 installement in The Guardians series is about much more than fixing a few rotten eggs-it brings the Guardians one step closer to defeating Pitch!Show more
Before SANTA was SANTA, he was North, Nicholas St. North'a daredevil swordsman whose prowess with double scimitars was legendary. Like any swashbuckling young warrior, North seeks treasure and adventure, leading him to the fiercely guarded village of Santoff Claussen, said to be home to the greatest treasure in all the East, and to an even greater wizard, Ombric Shalazar. But when North arrives, legends of riches have given way to terrors of epic proportions! North must decide whether to seek his fortune'or save the village. When our rebellious hero gets sucked into the chaos (literally), the fight becomes very personal. The Nightmare King and his evil Fearlings are ruling the night, owning the shadows, and sending waves of fear through all of Santoff Clausen. For North, this is a battle worth fighting...and, he's not alone. TheShow more
