Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fifth and final book in the first Spiderwick series!

Through field, cave, and forest
this tale has been spun.
And three must now finish
what malice has begun.

One will bear sword,
and one will rule sky,
but one has the answer
hidden deep down inside —

an answer for anger,
a balm against rage,
freedom for a captive,
and the cure for a sage.

See who is standing
when you turn the last page.

Review:

"The real magic of this series...is in the illustrations. Nearly every second page is embellished with the ink drawings of DiTerlizzi, evoking a delicious classical sense in this modern fantasy. Black...keeps the dialogue snappy and the children's personalities distinct." VOYA

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

Review:

"It is hard to be drawn into the tangle of events or to care about any of the shallowly-drawn characters. Once the elaborate and attractive packaging of the book is unwrapped, there is disappointingly little substance to this gift." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

The fifth and final book in the first Spiderwick series continues the tale of the Grace kids and a magic old book with hand-drawn pictures. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator Tony DiTerlizzi and author Holly Black deliver the fifth and final installment of their series featuring the Grace Kids and their incredible adventures. Illustrations.

These books are rather short, but always hugely entertaining. I love Tony DiTerlizzi's illustrations! This is a satisfying conclusion to the series, which nontheless leaves the reader wishing for more.
