Summary from Amazon.com:

In their fourth chapter book adventure, the Guardians recruit Sanderson ManSnoozy, the sleepy legend also known as the Sandman, to their cause. 
When the Man in the Moon brought together the Guardians, he warned them that they would face some terrible evils as they strove to protect the children of earth. But nothing could have prepared them for this: Pitch has disappeared and taken Katherine with him. And now the Guardians are not only down one member, but a young girl is missing. 
Fortunately, MiM knows just the man to join the team. Sanderson ManSnoozy—known in most circles as the Sandman—may be sleepy, but he’s also stalwart and clever and has a precocious ability to utilize sand in myriad ways. If the other Guardians can just convince Sandy that good can triumph evil, that good dreams can banish nightmares, they’ll have themselves quite a squad. But if they can’t…they might never see Katherine again.


I am SO excited for this book! I've had it pre-ordered on my Kindle since late 2012 (madness!) when I finished reading the first three books in The Guardians series. It's no secret that Rise of the Guardians is one of my all-time favourite films, and these books are a fantastic continuation to that world. I love finding out how the Guardians first got together and became what we know them as today, and I can't wait until Jack Frost eventually makes his appearance. So yes, roll on October!!
