Book 3--Lucinda's Secret
Things at the Spiderwick estate are getting completely out of hand. If being attacked by a band of marauding goblins and almost eaten by a bridge troll wasn't enough, how Jared is being harassed by Thimbletack, the house boggart, and Simon has a very hungry griffin recuperating in the carriage house. Mallory is convinced that the only way to stop the madness is to chuck the Guide. But that's not an option. With all kinds of creatures after them, the Guide is the only protection the Grace kids have. If they could just figure out why all of Faerie wants the Guide. Only one person can help solve this mystery--their crazy old Aunt Lucinda.
Book 4--the Ironwood Tree
The Grace kids, Jared, Simon, and Mallory, are at it again. Be sure to listen in to see what happens!

TONY DITERLIZZI is a New York Times bestselling author who was awarded a Caldecott Honor for his cinematic version of Howitt's classic The Spider and the Fly. His art has graced the work of J. R. R.

HOLLY BLACK was born in a decrepit Victorian house much like the one the Grace kids move into. Her mother gave her books on ghosts and fairies and Holly spent a happy childhood cooking up imaginary witches brew with her younger sister. Black is an avid collector of rare folklore volumes, spooky dolls, and crazy hats. She resides in Long Branch, New Jersey.
Containing both LUCINDA'S SECRET and THE IRONWOOD TREE, this latest audio installment relates the Mallory children's further adventures with faerie folk. They learn that their aunt is in a home because her addiction to faerie food drives her nearly mad and also conclude that Arthur Spiderwick may still be alive. When the twins' older sister is been captured by dwarves, they try to rescue her and learn as well about the evil Mulgarath. Mark Hamill may seem an unlikely choice for vocalizing young characters, but he manages a solid performance. His real talent is in his characterizations of fantastic creatures, whom he makes both scary and entertaining. J.M.S. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
