With their "true story" setup and breathless warnings, "Go away/close the book/put it down/do not look," the Spiderwick Chronicles series contains an intensely absorbing world of mystery, faeries, and imagination. Each book is irresistibly appealing, providing snappy plot progression, and dozens of imaginative pen-and-ink drawings.

Here begins the story of the Grace children--13-year-old Mallory and 9-year-old twins Jared and Simon--who move with their mother into the dilapidated Spiderwick Estate only to find themselves sucked into a dark and fascinating world of faeries.
