The Spiderwick Chronicles Part Five!,
This review is from: The Wrath of Mulgarath (Spiderwick Chronicles) (Hardcover)
The fifth (possibly the last) in the Spiderwick series. Mallory and her twin brothers return home to find their mother missing and the house wrecked. Their only hope is to find Mulgarath the troll king and defeat him - but this seems impossible.
Once again, this delightful little book is full fabulously detailed illustrations - and is divided up into 7 chapters (a week's worth of bedtime reading) plus an epilogue to tie up all the loose ends (including the children's father, Mr Grace, and a reunion of Arthur & Lucy Spiderwick). It's a well-paced exciting story; a return to form after the ever so slightly disappointing part four.
If you've read the others - then this is a must-read! If you haven't read the others, then I recommend starting with book one, 'The Field Guide.' The Spiderwick series is aimed at younger readers, possibly aged between 7 and 10, and chronicles the story of the Grace family and their misadventures with the Faerie inhabitants they discover in their new home.
