Review:
In the Spiderwick Chronicles' second book, things get even more exciting--and kind of scary--for the Grace kids, as the strange faerie world hinted at in The Field Guide blooms to full life around them.

After making tentative peace with Thimbletack (a coveralled house brownie who's "the size of a pencil"), Jared chooses to ignore the creature's pleas that he destroy his great-great-uncle's mysterious tome, Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You. Thimbletack warns, "You kept the book despite my advice./Sooner or later there'll be a price." Sure enough, the brownie soon sniffs out a "fell smell in the air," and the disappearance of Simon's new cat starts to make sense. And if the chapter titled "IN WHICH Mallory Finally Gets to Put Her Rapier to Good Use" doesn't get your heart racing as fast as the kids', just wait till you get a load of the troll. ("Cooome baaack. I haaave something for youuu.")

The series' already-fast pace picks up quickly in the second installment, and we can begin to imagine what other sorts of trouble these three will turn up as they learn the rules to this odd (and dangerous) new world--while, of course, trying to explain away the strange goings-on to their mother. Next up, book three, Lucinda's Secret. (What's her secret? I want to know. Now! (Ages 6 to 10) --Paul Hughes

Virginia Books & More
(Spotsylvania, VA, U.S.A.)

Book Description Soft cover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. This is a pristine and unread copy of the rare uncorrected proof edition of the first two SPIDERWICK books, two books in one, issued to booksellers and reviewers in advance of the release of the two books in 2003. The art in book one of this double volume is preliminary sketch art substantially different from the finished book, and therefore a gem for fans of artist Tony DiTerlizzi, recently the subject of a major museum retrospective. Please see my attached photos. Seller Inventory # GWBCB101
