The Spiderwick Chronicles, Book 2: The Seeing Stoneby Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"[T]he ink drawings of DiTerlizzi [evoke] a delicious classical sense in this modern fantasy....
"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
"While the characters' lack of depth detracts from the quality of these titles, the fast, movielike pace will grab young readers." School Library Journal
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.
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.
