The first Spiderwick book I picked up was #4, I go by the title and cover to tell whether or not a book is going to be interesting, if it looks good, I read the synopsis or whatever that little thing is that talks about the book. Just from looking at the cover of 'The Ironwood Tree' I knew it would be good. I must say, I wasn't disappointed at all, even though I prefer the long books.
