Format: Hardcover
These are the books you wish you had when you were a kid. But even now, as an adult; if you ever believed in faries and trolls, then you will enjoy these magical books. They are fairly short, and very easy to read. So they'er aimed for failry young children. The illustrations are amazing, Tony Diterlizzi brings magic to life with the tip of a pen!

The story tell so of the Grace siblings, the twin boys and their older sister. When Jared finds a peculiar field guide in their new home (very very old, broken down and filthy victorian mansion) strange things start to happen. Becuase right outside their home, in the old woods.. live real faeries! Trolls, goblins, Griffins and Sprites alike! Soon the children find themselves entangled into a mess its gonna take all their curage to get out. And with alot of help from the field guide and their newfound friend, the house brownie... can they bring peace and order back?

Absolutely amazing!

No idea how they are going to make a movie out of this story but the books are interesting. If you have read advertisements saying that if you like 'A Series of Unfortunate Events you will love this book' don't believe them. They are nothing like A.S.O.U.E! However if you like fantasy, fairies, trolls, goblins and are under ten (or an adult who enjoys reading to ther children) then read these books. Children will love the story about two twin brothers and their sister who find a magic field guide to magic creatures in their aunt's house and are sent on a wild goose chase as evil magic creatures lead by the ogre Mulgrath to retrieve the book.

This was a present for my seven year old who has already read them all. She is now saving her pocket money for the other two books so that she can carry the story on.
The books have been a huge hit and she loves the pictures in them and the story has completely captured her imagination.

The Spiderwick Chronicles is a book I would have absolutely adored as a child. As an adult, I still thought it was wonderful. It is full of the fantasy, magic, and imagination that makes children's books such a joy to read and share.

My 9 year old started reading the series at school and enjoyed it, but didn't like the second book so much. We thought that it lacked humour.
