Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Spiderwick Chronicles leave the old-fashioned charm of New England far behind and head south for some fiendish faerie fun in the hot Florida sun. Eleven-year-old Nicholas Vargas only thinks his life has been turned upside down after his developer father remarries and moves his new wife and daughter into the soon-to-be completed Mangrove Hollow.

But an "expedition" to a nearby lake turns up a little nixie with a giant problem — the huge, lumbering, fire-breathing variety — and it's up to Nick; his stepsister, Laurie; and his big brother, Julian (plus a familiar face from the original Spiderwick Chronicles) to figure out the best way to stop a host of rampaging giants before all of Florida goes up in smoke.

Synopsis:

A brand-new cycle of the "New York Times" bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles begins. Eleven-year-old Nicholas Vargas moves with his newly remarried father into the soon-to-be-completed Mangrove Hollow in Florida. But an expedition to a nearby lake turns up a little nixie with a giant problem. Illustrations.

I'm pretty "meh" on this one. The writing is somewhat awkard, and half of the book reads rather like fanfic, with the main characters running around with copies of the first Spiderwick books and meeting not only one of the children from the first series, but the authors as well. I am interested to read the sequel, however, because toward the end this started to actually get interesting and feel like a real book.
