    One thought on “The Spiderwick Chronicles”

    1. This was a very fun series to read. The books are short (only 100 pages each or so, including pages of beautiful illustrations that add to the overall enjoyment) and each book ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, so you really need to read the whole series to enjoy it. Three siblings (twin boys and their older sister) move to a relative's old house with their mom and discover their great-great-uncle's book about goblins, dwarves, brownies, elves, etc. - and these creatures live in the land but are in [...]

    2. A very charming bookthe delightful illustrations only added to the magic and to the storya well made movie with the lovely Irish Sarah Bolger rounded things off nicely.

    3. I'll have to give this series a 4.5 of 5. Let's break this down…#1 - The Field Guide - 5/5 starsI loved it! I didn't expect this children's book to be half as good as it was. I love the way of writing in this book. Very descriptive and imaginative.#2 - The Seeing Stone - 4/5 stars#3 - Lucinda's Secret - 4/5 starsThis wasn't my favorite in the series, but still very good! I really like how this book describes the creatures and surroundings. I find it fascinating to read! I also like the charact [...]

    4. It must be hard to be a children's fiction writer in a post-Harry Potter world. So many new fantasy series' seem at once to be grasping for the same level of fandom by using so many of the same devices as the Potter books, and yet at the same time desperately trying to assert their originality. There are a lot of good things to be said for the Spiderwick Chronicles, and I'm looking forward to the movie version's release in a few weeks. But at the same time, there's something kind of hollow about [...]

    5. The Spiderwick Chronicles is a series that I missed out on as a child but I remember my younger brother had the first few books. I have read the first two a few times previously but never the whole series so I was excited to give them a go.I sped through them within just a few days; the writing style is easy to get through being that they are written for a younger audience and the illustrations really break up the text nicely. I think that although the books are pretty consistent, there was a di [...]

    6. so, we're at Lisa & Raul's for Christmas and they've got the recently released movie The Spiderwick Chronicles. They're blown away by the "lore" they've never heard of. None of it is "new" to me, but the movie was good, so I hunted down a copy of the omnibused stories to readAfter Christmas, bought another 2 copies and sent them to Texas and Maryland for my sisters' young-uns to enjoy

    7. Dal mio post sul blog[]forse il secondo mi ha presa un po’ meno, mentre il quarto e il quinto mi son piaciuti ancora di più, ma nel complesso è una serie che mi ha proprio fatto piacere leggere.[]Una serie in cinque libri perfettamente godibile anche dagli adulti, una storia illustrata magistralmente che chiede a gran voce di essere presente sui vostri scaffali o nelle vostre librerie digitali, un barattolo pieno di lucciole che chiedono di essere liberate per lasciarsi ammirare mentre balug [...]

    8. Υπέροχο βιβλίο για παιδιά (κ για ενήλικες παιδιά). Γιατί όταν ήμουν παιδί δεν μου έφερναν τέτοια βιβλία; Πόσο μου εξάπτουν τη φαντασία; Νεράιδες, ξωτικά τρολς και καλικάτζαροι σε μια μεγάλη έπαυλη που θα γίνει το σπίτι τους και γύρω από αυτή! Οοοολα αυτά τα έβαλαν μέσα σε αυτό [...]

    9. This was the first time that I have read this series and I'm so glad that I did. It's a series written for children, but I think it can be enjoyed by anyone. It has excellent writing, believable characters, and a fun (but sometimes spooky) story. We follow the three Grace children: Jared, his twin Simon, and their older sister Mallory. Along with their mother, the three children move into an old estate owned by a relative, and what they find is not what they expected. A new world is opened to th [...]

    10. Shape-shifting ogres, dragons, griffins, goblins, faeries, elves & sprites - all inhabiting a parallel, invisible world alongside our own c'est très charmant.

    11. De ouders van Mallory en haar tweelingbroertjes Jared en Simon zijn gescheiden en hun moeder neemt haar drie kinderen vanuit New York mee naar een verlaten huis van hun oudoom Arthur Spiderwick. Het is een oud huis en er gebeuren allemaal vreemde dingen. Dingen verdwijnen en er zijn wat opmerkelijke ongelukjes. Jared krijgt alleen maar de schuld van zijn moeder, maar de kinderen vermoeden dat er iets gaande is in het huis van Spiderwick. Ze gaan op onderzoek uit en vinden het boek van Arthur Spi [...]

    13. I read the entire series in one go during a bout of insomnia. Youth literature is not really my "thing", but I have been reading and re-reading some things lately because of a few children's librarians I know (one in particular, mmm), and I generally like to read books before watching film adaptations. The only problem is nowadays I'm generally not even aware that a film is an adaptation of a book. I guess I should just assume since Hollywood doesn't seem particularly creative in general anymore [...]

    14. I first read this series when I was in my first year high school. I remembered that every time I went to our school library which is every day, I always find time to get the latest/recent fiction book. I spotted this beautiful book and the Goosebumps series! Yknow, kids. HAHA! And, from then on, I always make it a point to ask if the next book is already available, and so on. I finished this whole damn set for two years because our library wasn't able to get their copies on time.After seven year [...]

    15. Cesi, my 6-yr-old, and I read this set and had a blast with it. It's all about getting a glimpse into the normally invisible world of Faerie all around us in which ogres, sprites, brownies, elves, trolls, griffins, goblins, and dragons live. The stories move along at a nice clip, and offer kids plot twists to draw them into attempting to solve mysteries and innovate with the characters when things don't turn out as planned (which they mostly don't, immediately anyway). Way better than the movie, [...]

    16. Voto reale/real rating: 3,5/5Eng: I found this book while I was searching for the movie. I thought it was something like the Neverending story: children going into the magic world because of a book but this time it was different because the magic world found the children because of the book. There were a lot of pictures and also a little part where they were colored. I really liked this book but I think I'm too old for this and also that the plot wasn't the most original 8there are a lot of book [...]

    17. Though originally released separately, the five editions combined here form one stonkingly well-written, structured and plotted little children's fantasy novel. Jared, Simon and Mallory stumble across a whole hidden world of faeries when they find a Field Guide to fantastical things, and soon they are beset by boggarts and goblins and trolls and ogres and all manner of frightful (and delightful) things, making their life interesting. Told from the point of view mainly of Jared, with his hot temp [...]

    18. This was a quick, fun listen. I'm not sure I got the full experience, as my attention was often divided, but the story was simple enough that it didn't trip me up much. Mark Hamill was the reader, and it's pretty well known among the cartoon-watching community that he is a particularly good voice actor. He did very well with the myriad of fantastical characters in this story, giving them each unique and fun voices. I wish he'd done that with the protagonists, too, but it was still a well done re [...]

    19. I enjoyed the story of The Spiderwick Chronicles. However, I was disappointed that each book was really only a small piece of the whole story. They could have all been put into one larger book that still would not have been too long. Instead they made the books smaller and just over 100 pages each. The cost of each hardcover book in the set is $10.99. It seems more like a marketing ploy to get people to pay out more money. To get the whole set would cost $50 or more but what you are ending up wi [...]

    20. This is one of the most interesting series I read as a child. It also sits very high up on my list of books I’d hoped to see as films only to be disappointed (as so often seems to be the case).It’s such an interesting story and you really do need to sit it out until the very end to find out how things play out. Each book contains its own story whilst adding to the continuous story throughout.As a whole, one of my favourite childhood reads.

    21. I picked this up because we needed a new audiobook for the car and my daughter loves fairies. I expected something lighthearted with some fairy mythology tossed in. What I got was a series that discussed some heavy issues, including divorce, abandonment, loss, and forgiveness, and did so with both humor and candor. There were no "chosen ones," only children who became special because they chose to work hard at things that were important to them.

    22. A very fun story, one that is very easy to get into, with likeable characters (I adore the Grace twins liek whoa) and an interesting cast of supernatural creatures.It definitely felt light-hearted. The tone of the whole series of books reminded me of CS Lewis and Diana Wynne Jones, but a little simpler. And the illustrations are beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. I really think the two (images + text) complimented each other and made the story that much more lush.Overall, an enjoyable read!

    23. This was such a fast read! And the drawings and descriptions create such a beautiful world. The story itself is definitely aimed at children, but I enjoyed it anyway. Especially the intertextual references made the book fun. And I would guess that those could be lost on younger children. Also have I mentioned how beautiful the artwork is? It's amazing!
