About book The Sandman And The War Of Dreams (2013)

I absolutely LOVE this series and was sooo excited to read this next volume. If you've read the last book, the picture book "The Sandman" then you've already met Sanderson Mansnoozy and know his background story. This book starts with current events but it does retell his background so you don't need to have read the picture book, but who would want to miss such a beautiful book?! This is just such a fast-paced adventurous story where I absolutely heart all the characters that I made myself take two days to read it. I read half one day and finished up the next, just so I could savour and linger over the story. There aren't very many top-notch fantasy novels/series for the 7-11 age group and this is up there with the first Spiderwick Chronicles in my opinion. The illustration is just as appealing as the text. I do want to warn readers though to *stay away* from the movie. It has absolutely nothing to do with these books, this series, AT ALL. It doesn't even have the same characters! Well, the characters look the same and have the same names but they are not the same characters as known in the books. So think of the books and the movie as two separate and non-related entities. But read this series. Adorable elementary fantasy. I enjoyed this one more than the previous two. It harkened back to the first book, Nicholas St. North, and continued on in that 1930's-esque fantasy, fairy tale feel. I loved the explanation of the Sandman as well, this being the first time he's been encountered in the books, and his past was never touched on in the movie. It tied things together nicely.I am looking forward to the final book. This is a series I can imagine reading aloud to my children one day.
