Author Info
William Joyce
William Joyce's first full-length picture book, BILLY'S BOOGER, written while he was in elementary school, got him sent to the principal's office. Since that time he has created a number of well-loved and less "gross" works such as DINOSUAR BOB(1988) and BENTLY AND EGG (1992). He attended Southern Methodist University and worked as painter before becoming the author and illustrator of picture books. Joyce says that he is influenced by cartoons, television, and movies--his favorite movie character, King Kong, has a cameo appearance in nearly every one of his books.

From the Publisher
Editors Note The second picture book in Academy Award winner William Joyce's The Guardians of Childhood series tells how the Sandman dreamed up his sweet-dreams legacy.One foggy night, the Man in the Moon has a startling thought: When the moon is less than full and bright, who will keep children safe at night? He needs a backup plan! Or a backup Guardian, as it were. His keen eye falls upon a sleepy little fellow living on a sleepy little island who is a sweet-dreamer extraordinaire.  Since good dreams always trump bad ones, this means Pitch, the Nightmare King, will be further thwarted in his nefarious quest to terrorize children. So Sanderson Mansnoozie seems the perfect choice. But there are two problems. Firstly, given that Sandy has never had a bad dream, how can MiM convince him how important this new role is to the happy-being of children everywhere? And secondly, how can MiM keep this snoozy ally awake long enough to help?     This follow-up to The Man in the Moon, a New York Times bestseller called ?dazzlingly inventive,? by Publishers Weekly, introduces us to the sleepy little fellow to whom we owe many a good nights' rest, the second Guardian of Childhood, the Sandman.
