"Before Jack Frost was Jack Frost, he was Nightlight, the most trusted and valiant companion of Mim, the Man in the Moon. But when Pitch destroys Mim's world, he nearly destroys Nightlight too, sending him plunging to Earth where, like Peter Pan, he is destined to remain forever a boy, frozen in time. And while Nightlight has fun sailing icy winds and surfing clouds, he is also lonely without his friend Mim. To keep the cold in his heart from taking over, he spreads it to the landscapes around him and earns a new name: Jack Overland Frost. But a true friend always comes through, and on one particularly bleak night, Mim shines down and shows Jack a group of children in great peril. Through helping them, Jack finds the warmth he's been yearning for, and realizes bringing joy to others can melt his own chill. It is this realization--that there will always be children who need moments of bravery, who need rosy cheeks, who need to build snowmen, and who are then eager for a spring day--that makes Jack realize why he is a forever boy, and worthy of becoming a Guardian of Childhood" --… (més)

Author/artist William Joyce sets out the story of Jack Frost in this third picture-book in his The Guardians of Childhood series, following upon The Man in the Moon and The Sandman: The Story of Sanderson Mansnoozie. Once a guardian to the young Man in the Moon, AKA MiM, Jack was known as Nighlight. But then one day, while defending MiM from Pitch, the terrible Nightmare King, he fell to Earth and was surrounded by snow and frost. Terribly alone and lonely, he was consumed by cold, until reminded by the now-grown Man in the Moon of the joy that helping and protecting others can bring...

As with its predecessors, Jack Frost is an absolute delight, visually speaking! The artwork is simply gorgeous, with a bold, deep color palette, and plenty of magical scenes to grab the reader's attention. It would appear that Joyce had a little help here, as a second illustrator - Andrew Theophilopoulos - is credited on the title-page. Whatever the case may be, I loved the illustrations. My favorite scene was the one in which Jack sails through a starry night, past the bright moon - a deeply dramatic scene. The story was engaging, and offers an interesting follow-up to the earlier tales. At some point, I hope to read the related fantasy novels that Joyce has written, featuring these "Guardians of Childhood." In the meantime, I'm glad to have read the picture-books, which I recommend to all young children who enjoy fantasy, fairy-tales, and beautifully-illustrated picture-books. ( )

While this book does confirm a theory I've held for quite some time, it really doesn't do much else. Probably only for hard-core Guardians of Childhood fans. ( )

Before Jack Frost was Jack Frost, he was Nightlight, the most trusted and valiant companion of Mim, the Man in the Moon. But when Pitch destroys Mim’s world, he nearly destroys Nightlight too, sending him plunging to Earth where, like Peter Pan, he is destined to remain forever a boy, frozen in time. And while Nightlight has fun sailing icy winds and surfing clouds, he is also lonely without his friend Mim. To keep the cold in his heart from taking over, he spreads it to the landscapes around him and earns a new name: Jack Overland Frost. ( )
