In addition to the fifteen creatures featured in the first five Spiderwick adventures, this extensive volume features an additional fifteen creatures to delight and astonish, such as mermaids, gargoyles and leprechauns. It also features snippets from Arthur Spiderwick's journal...information that specifically links the Guide to the Spiderwick Chronicles. There are even cameos from all the favourites in the series. From clever and informative introductory sections on essential materials and faerie world basics, through sections featuring fabulous faerie species, to an addendum created by Jared Grace, correcting Arthur Spiderwick and cross-referencing with the story books, this is the field guide to end all field guides!

Anyone who has read and enjoyed the Spiderwick Chronicles should love this book. I am sure it would fire up the imaginations of younger readers, perhaps even getting them interested in the outside world, as they try to hunt for the creatures this book contains. For those of us who are slightly older, THE FIELD GUIDE is a happy distraction to the normality of everyday life. I love dipping into this book, it has certainly gained a permanent place on my bookshelf.
Illustrations and content are wonderful, appreciated by children and adults alike.
The one downside are the foldouts, the ends of which are tucked into the spine of the book, making it harder for younger readers to open them out without tearing the page.
