The Grace children discover the faerie world is closer than you think in this repackage of the first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles.

After finding a mysterious, handmade field guide in the attic of the ramshackle old mansion they’ve just moved into, Jared; his twin brother, Simon; and their older sister, Mallory, discover that there’s a magical and maybe dangerous world existing parallel to our own—the world of faerie.

The Grace children want to share their story, but the faeries will do everything possible to stop them...

In honor of the tenth anniversary of the #1 New York Times bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles series, which has more than 12 million copies in print worldwide, this edition of The Field Guide features a larger trim size and an original cover with all-new art from Tony DiTerlizzi.

              As a re-read from my childhood, I thought these books were really fun to just sit down and enjoy. I fled through all five books in one day and I thought Simon, Jared and Mallory's story was really interesting to indulge into again.

                Great review, "ydelg." I loved this book too. Did you find that you had more in common with Simon, Jared, or Mallory? Which character did you like best. p.s. Next time, try to use proper capitalization and punctuation. p.p.s. To earn credit for the Summer Reading program, try reviewing some books from the summer list as well. -Your teacher :)

                    I read this book because I joined a book club for part of the series but, didn't finish the series. This book is a short sweet book I have seen the movie. Don't see the movie until you read all of the books.
