Format: Hardcover
'Lucinda's Secret' is the third book in the Spiderwick Chronicles - continuing from where Book 2 -'The Seeing Stone' left off.
The Grace children are in more danger than ever. Thimbletack their house-boggart has fallen out with nine year-old-Jared because he refuses to give him Arthur Spiderwick's old book containing the truth about the invisible faerie world - only now, it isn't invisible to the Grace kids any longer. A hobgoblin spat in their eyes, giving them 'the sight,' and now they see magical creatures that are invisible to their mother and everyone else. This is perhaps as well, as Jared's twin brother Simon is looking after an enormous injured griffin!
The old house that the Grace family live in belongs to their Great Aunt Lucinda - locked away in an insane asylum for refusing food and claiming she is fed by faeries. Jared realizes that their mad relative isn't perhaps as insane as people think - so he, Simon and Mallory visit her, to ask her advice about what they should do with the Field Guide. But when they return home they are in for an unpleasant surprise. This time their adventure involves a phooka, a unicorn and some beautiful yet sinister elves.
These little books are like something from a bygone era. The writing is a delight - but it is the illustrations that make them truly special. They are amply illustrated with fabulous 'Arthur Rackham' style pictures that will delight children from 8 to 80.
This book is the third in a series of five - about the strange, magical, and decidedly dangerous inhabitants of the invisible faerie world that surrounds us. The Spiderwick Chronicles continue with: Book 4 - 'The Ironwood Tree.'

Format: Hardcover
By now you have figured out that the Spiderwick Chronicles are actually one story split over several books much as the Tolkien story is not a trilogy but a one story split over three books.

In the last book we see that the children made up a lame excuse for their foray into the magical world around them.

Now they wonder why the Field Guide is of interest to every one and go to Aunt Lucinda for answers. As you recall Aunt Lucinda is in the Nut house, oops, rest home for eccentrics. They get more than they planned on.

We follow them as they discover the mystery of the missing Arthur Spiderwick. The adventure has a sort of Alice feel.

Be he alive or be he dead

They think they know

Which way Arthur fled.

I like this book because it makes you believe and it makes you laugh and it makes you have a better imagination.

I gave this book 5stars because it's fab and funny also fun.

I would give this book to Lily-May red fern because she has read book 1and 2.

Has been keeping a young grandson very happy, edgy, scared, wide eyed and enthralled for a few nights as I read him a bedtime story via Skype - a lovely way to keep in touch. Story spellbinding and illustrations magical.

We lost the original books so decided to replace them in hardback - a lovely book but not quite to the original high quality!

By Steven R. McEvoy TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 3 May 2011
Format: Hardcover
I must admit I am addicted to these books, read three of them in 2 days and will more than likely reread the whole series again and again. Some books are like a bottle of Gatorade that you just chug back, some like a nice cup of tea that you sip, and some like a fine wine that you savour slowly. Right now I am drinking these books back because I need to know what happens next. But I know I will go back and drink them in slowly like a big mug of Irish Breakfast tea on my second reading. Black and DiTerlizzi have written a wonderful series that I can highly recommend. Their books are very enjoyable, and much like the Narnia books by C.S. Lewis, will be enjoyed by both the young and young at heart!

In this book the Grace children, Malory, and the twins Jared and Simon, visit their Great Aunt Lucinda and discover that even though she is committed she is not really crazy. In this book we also meet more creatures from the other world, and find out that many different beings want Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide, and they all seem malevolent to some extent. We also discover that something lost for more than 70 years might really be close at hand. And Thimbletack does not appear, but signs of his mischief abound. In this book we meet a unicorn, fairies, and elves. It is another wonderful book in an awesome series.
