Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Things at the Spiderwick estate are getting completely out of hand. As if being attacked by goblins and almost eaten by a bridge troll wasn't enough, now the house boggart, Thimbletack, is out to get Jared. Simon has a very hungry griffin recuperating in the carriage house. And Mallory is convinced that the only way to stop the madness is to chuck the Guide. Fortunately for Jared, that's not an option. With all kinds of creatures after them, the Guide is the only protection the Grace kids have. If he could just figure out why all of Faerie wants it. There's only one person who can help solve this mystery — their crazy old aunt Lucinda.

Review:

"The black-and-white Arthur Rackhamesque illustrations add a satisfyingly eerie note to this mock-gothic tale, which will be best appreciated by readers who have followed the 'Spiderwick Chronicles' from the beginning." School Library Journal

Review:

"Once again Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black have created a book that perplexes and carries one into a world where anything can happen....Irresistible and enthralling, this is a book that is truly hard to put down." Children's Literature

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.
