Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic box set for a fantastic series This set has the first three lovely hardcover books from the Guardians of Childhood series. If you've heard of the Rise of the Guardians movie, these books are about how the Guardians first formed 200-300 years before the movie is set. I definitely recommend them. A blustery bandit king Nicholas St North who discovers magic and the best of himself, his journey through the books leading him towards becoming Santa, and two other childhood figures: the almost vulcan-like giant alien rabbit E. Aster Bunnymund, who's obsessed with eggs, and the warrior Toothiana, protector of children's teeth. The Sandman won't appear until book four, but the Nightmare King Pitch Black is there from the beginning along with a few others, and the girl Katherine is there throughout, her point of view being what most kids will identify with. Lots of adventure and humour, with some evocative illustrations.
