This article is about the real world.
This article is about the second book of Avatar: The Last Airbender. For the second book of The Legend of Korra, see Book Two: Spirits.

The Complete Book 2 Collection's cover features Aang in the Avatar State in the background, hovering over the other members of Team Avatar.

Book Two: Earth () is the title of the second season of Avatar: The Last Airbender, created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, and the sequel to Book One: Water. The title refers to the Avatar Cycle: water, earth, fire, and air, and the story of Aang learning earthbending under the tutelage of Toph Beifong is a primary focus during this season.

The season began on March 17, 2006, with the airing of "The Avatar State", and ended on December 1 of the same year with "The Guru" and "The Crossroads of Destiny", both episodes airing on the same date. It was followed by Book Three: Fire, the third and final season.

In the iTunes release of Book Two, the episodes "The Serpent's Pass" and "The Drill" are combined into one episode titled "The Secret of the Fire Nation".

Official summary

"Avatar Aang continues his quest to master the four elements before the end of summer. Together with Katara, Sokka, Momo, and Appa, he journeys across the Earth Kingdom in search of an Earthbending mentor. Along the way, he confronts Princess Azula, treacherous daughter of Firelord Ozai and sister to Prince Zuko. More powerful than her brother, Azula will stop nothing to defeat the Avatar. But Aang and the gang find plenty of Earth Kingdom allies to help them along the way. From the swamps of the South to the Earth King's palace, Avatar: Book 2 is an adventure like no other.
