Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thanks to the book left behind by Arthur Spiderwick, life for the Grace children is more unpredictable than ever. When Simon goes off to look for his cat and disappears, Jared is convinced he's been kidnapped by trolls. Mallory is doubtful. But it turns out Jared's scary hunch is right. Simon is in grave danger — and only Jared and Mallory can save him.

Review:

"[T]he ink drawings of DiTerlizzi [evoke] a delicious classical sense in this modern fantasy....[T]he series will surely develop a devoted following, particularly with avid fantasy readers." Diane Emge, VOYA

Review:

"This book is faster paced than the first one and the illustrations add an extra element of suspense and spookiness to the story." Suzanne Lieurance, Children's Literature

Review:

"While the characters' lack of depth detracts from the quality of these titles, the fast, movielike pace will grab young readers." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

The Grace kids are just beginning to get used to Aunt Lucinda's strange old mansion when Simon suddenly disappears. Jared and his sister have to rely on the help of a mischievous house boggart, a nasty bridge troll, and a loud-mouthed hobgoblin to get him back. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

When Mallory and Jared attempt to rescue Simon from goblins, they use a magical stone which enables them to see things that are normally invisible.

About the Author

A New York Times bestselling author, Tony DiTerlizzi created the Zena Sutherland Award-winning Ted, Jimmy Zangwow's Out-of-This-World Moon Pie Adventure, as well as illustrations in Tony Johnston's Alien and Possum beginning-reader series. Most recently, his brilliantly cinematic version of Mary Howitt's classic The Spider and the Fly was awarded a Caldecott Honor. He and his wife, Angela, reside with their pug, Goblin, in Amherst, Massachusetts.

An avid collector of rare folklore volumes, Holly Black spent her early years in a decaying Victorian mansion where her mother fed her a steady diet of ghost stories and books about faeries. Her first book, Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale, received two starred reviews and a Best Book for Young Adults citation from the American Library Association. She lives in West Long Branch, New Jersey, with her husband, Theo.

Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black did a very good job on the Spiderwick chronicles. I read in the Y.A. section and it is usually very hard for me to find a book that I truly enjoy, but I must say- I really like these books.
