Deskripsi

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.

A Simon & Schuster audio production.

Tentang penulis

William Joyce does a lot of stuff but children’s books are his true bailiwick (The Guardians series, Dinosaur Bob series, George Shrinks, and the #1 New York Times bestselling The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, which is also his Academy Award–winning short film, to name a few). He lives in Shreveport, Louisiana. Talk to William Joyce and see upcoming work at @HeyBillJoyce on Twitter and Instagram.

    I enjoyed the third installment to the series, but was left a bit wanting. I wanted more of Toothiana and her story, more of the story behind the Sisters of the Wind and the flying elephant. I just wish it had been a few more chapters.

    An excellent addition to "The Guardians" series! I greatly enjoyed discovering the origins of the "Tooth Fairy", but talk about one hell of a cliffhanger ending! Poor Katherine and even a bit of pity of Pitch. The next book, where we meet the Sandman, cannot be printed soon enough for this fan.

    I love this author & this series. The updated twist on traditional fairy tale folk tale creatures is so creative. So far the author has told the story of Santa, Easter Bunny & now tooth fairy. The magic and mystery & fantasy is perfectly blended in each story. I can't wait for the 4th book in this series which stars Jack Frost!

    Joyce continues his Guardians of Childhood series with the third installment. Now, a third installment is always a delicate proposition; there's no longer the "newness" of the first book, or the excitement of "bigger and better" that a second book seems to promise. A third book, especially a third book in a series that is known to be longer, has to keep expanding the fictional world while maintaining the interest of its audience. It's a sort of balance between giving readers what they immediately want and what they, in the long-term, need.For the most part, Joyce manages the trick, but the result is that Toothiana feels rather like a pot-boiler. We aren't finding out so much about the world of the Guardians, and we aren't really adding to their quest. Instead, this story diverts into the history of (who will be) the next hero to join the Guardians, and much of the action revolves around a conflict that involves her past and continues into the present day. You can also get some sense of where nascent plot strands are starting to tie together, and the result is a shorter book that, in many ways, feels like Joyce pausing to take stock. It's still immensely readable, but it feels less consequential - and more full of exposition - than either of the previous entries in the series. Hopefully, the series will pick up again in a big way with the next volume, which promises to feature the Sandman - a character Joyce has already introduced in picture book form. With any luck, that will help to avert a lot of the exposition aspects and allow Joyce to charge ahead with the fun adventure.

    Reason for Reading: Next in the series.Ds absolutely adores this series. He has collected them all and given them the honour of residing on his bookshelf. He really has no favourite character as he enjoys them all, even the evil Pitch. Quite a few new characters are introduced in this volume, leaving some of the smaller regular characters without much page time, though I do seem to think everyone at least does get mention. New to the series are the villain "The Monkey King", in league with Pitch of course, and his "Monkey Army, the titular character, and a surprise new character appears in the final chapters. I just love Toothiana, a re-imagining of the tooth fairy. She is a tall warrior, who has the ability to multiply into miniature versions of herself, and her appearance and mannerisms are birdlike. An appealing, attractive character. The plot marches forward with the overall arching theme of the series and yet this volume does have a somewhat separate plot of it's own, though rather esoterical, one of feeling a false relief and safety. Finding Joyce's art stunning as ever and delighting in this series, which I am fond of comparing "The Spiderwick Chronicles" not in content but in target audience and quality fantasy plot and writing.We are ready to see the movie now as we've read all the books "The Sandman" picture book review coming soon. I'm very leery as to whether we'll like it though as the movie seems to differ drastically, from character names to dropping characters from the books and even adding unheard of new characters. We'll see.......!

    The next installment of William Joyce?s Guardians of Childhood (or, as the novel series is called to set it apart from the related storybooks: just The Guardians), we meet the Tooth Fairy, among some other notables of the world of myth and make-believe. Much like in the previous book, however, we don?t meet her until almost midway through the book, leaving much of the preceding story to be more ?Mother Goose Goes to the Dentist? than a narrative about the Tooth Fairy (called Toothiana) and how she joins the Guardians (but that story is also present).Aside from what I thought was a weak resolution to the story?s climax, I found this story to be just as enjoyable as its predecessors, made all the more enjoyable by Joyce?s creative illustrations scattered throughout (complete with perfectly naive captions).The only other bad thing I could find is that this book was much too short. Sure, it was just as long as the others, but the story could have gone on and on and on, and I would have gladly turned page after page after page to reach the end. Nevertheless, we, the readers, are left with a terribly long wait for the next chapter, which promises to introduce the Sandman (who has been introduced in a corresponding storybook) and a character know as Jackson Overland Frost.I look forward to this, as well as to the upcoming film (though, I must admit, I look forward more to the books, as seeing films for me right now are a logistical nightmare). In the meantime, if you have not already started this series, I suggest you do. The stories themselves were so interesting, I managed to finish each volume in a couple of hours of reading.
