The Wrath of Mulgarath (Spiderwick Chronicles)
The Wrath of Mulgarath (Spiderwick Chronicles)
by Holly Black
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Day of Reckoning ..., 12 July 2005
Simon, Jared and Mallory Grace race against time to rescue their mother from evil clutches of Mulgarath the Ogre, with help from the Elves and even Arthur Spiderwick as the world descends into an epic war.
This is by far the most exciting book so far in the Spiderwick series as Mallory, Jared, Simon [who must do something quite out of character in this book to save them] and Byron the Gryphon fight for their lives against goblins and Dragons.
And it's all building up to a final showdown with Mulgarath in his palace of scrap metal...
A worthy end to the saga despite being a bit of a blood-bath. By far the book's most entertaining character is the shape-shifting ogre, Mulgarath who is an old-school, mustache-twirling, James-Bond style villain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasy at it's best, 12 July 2005
The Ironwood Tree, fourth of the Spiderwick Chronicles, a cute little series of evergreen yarns by Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi depicts intrepid teen heroes Jarred, Simon and foxy Mallory Grace encountering a menacing and deadly Shape-shifter who frames Jarred for a crime he didn't commit. It's all downhill from here as Mallory is kidnapped by a fiendish band of dwarves who keep up with the tradition of being great miners and craftsmen and live in a subterannean utopia of gold, silver, copper and iron in the Old Quarry.
Now Simon and Jarred must find a way to rescue their sister before the dwarves put into action their plan for world-domination involving the Ironwood Tree.
But who is Mulgarath the Ogre?
