it was amazing

This review applies to the other two in Joyce's series about the mythical guardians of the best parts of childhood: dreams, adventure, hope, sharing, love. Everything is so new and whimsical and epic and powerful as a child. Joyce perfectly captures that in his detailed colorful illustrations. My personal fave is His Nocturnal Magnificence, Sanderson Mansnoozie, Sandman the First, Lord High Protector of Sleep and Dreams. You deserve all your titles, my sweet dude. I want your island, and your falling star ship, and some of that dreamsand for some lovely dreams.

I also think some of the best points of these picture books, and the movie, is how transformative life is. Everything changes and every little thing and person is worthy of a closer look. Take a few short minutes to appreciate how bloody fantastic the world is around you. Lovely faerie tale twists on familiar concepts.
