Forget the bunny trail. E. Aster Bunnymund is on a warpath. In this second chapter book in Academy Award winner 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!

"The characters in Joyce's book learn that "magic's real power is in believing." Listeners will need no magic to believe. Joyce's well-crafted fantasy soars, and the lyrical language blossoms with Gerard Doyle's excellent narration. There's much at stake for the children of Earth, whose dreams are threatened by the evil Pitch, the deliverer of nightmares. In this second book in the series, E. Aster Bunnymund's wisdom and talent, along with his nontraditional eggs, are called upon to help banish Pitch. Doyle's intimate, genuine delivery helps listeners experience the importance of storytelling and friendship. An even cadence; clear, distinctive vocal characterizations; and deft changes in pacing help listeners easily follow along. J.K.R.
