Don't miss The Rise of the Guardians, soon to be a major motion picture in theaters November 2012.
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. There are five other Guardians out there. He only has to find them in time.

A fine read!
While I maybe too old for the book's target reading demographic I enjoyed every chapter of this story despite how short it felt. But that only makes me want to read even more about the Guardians. I love the movie and now this series too! I hope to tell my friends about as much as I can of how wonderful this story and illustrations Are.
