Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles 3 books. If I were the author I would have more characters and more protagonist to make the story much more interesting and see how the characters got through their problems.

Jul 24, Stephanie rated it it was ok. Then, don’t let’s forget to mention the appearance of the twin boys from the other books, whose names apiderwick apparently changed prior to publishing to protect their identities Maybe I could have done something about it before I had to leave.

Stay up to date on new reviews. May 01, mj rated it really liked it.

One of the characters lies constantly to the parents in the story. You don’t byond to have read the Spiderwick books to make sense of this first book in a new trilogy. I think it would be a waste of time to go over the plot again May 03, Liana rated it liked it Shelves: I hope some day the writers have just as much a desire to create more books as I have to read them. But he’s really unhappy to spidegwick that she’s right.

Towards the end of the story Nick and Laurie go on some adventures and Nick finds a four leaf clover and has no idea that it gives him the ability to see fairies until Laurie tells him all about it. His dad wants Nick to play nice, though, so he has to join her on her fairy hunt through their new housing development that his dad is building.

Dec 15, Annmarie Hernandez rated it it was amazing. Enter a new stepsister he has to keep occupied, and fairies literally start coming out of the woodworks. But an “expedition” to a nearby lake turns up a little nixie with a giant problem – the huge, lumbering, fire-breathing variety – and it’s up to Nick; his stepsister, Laurie; and his big brother, Julian plus a familiar face from the original Spiderwick Chronicles to figure out the best way to stop a host of rampaging giants before all of Florida goes up in smoke.

With Holly Black, he created the middle-grade series, The Spiderwick Chronicles, which has sold millions of copies, been adapted into a feature film, and has been translated in over thirty countries. I thought the ending was good because it ended in a good way and everyone was safe after all. That night he finds that he is able to see creatures of faerie – a nixie a water faerie is lying on the lawn of his home.

Oct 15, Barlow Girls rated it it was amazing. The Spiderwick Chronicles leave the chrpnicles charm of New England far behind and head south for some fiendish faerie fun in the hot Florida sun.

Another fun sci-fi series to read with AJ: Laurie owns the Spiderwick Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You, and is using information from the book to search for clues to any fairy presence.

This was just sort of underwhelming. After Nicholas finds her, the Nixie gives them the Sight permanantly. Chronjcles, I think the authors should have stopped with the first set of books.

The whole affair just seems kind of rushed and not totally thought-out. The characters are new, the setting changed to Florida, but the concept is the same: About these links Common Sense Media, a nonprofit organization, earns a small affiliate fee from Amazon or iTunes when you use our links to make a purchase. Feb 27, Colee rated it really liked it. If you read this book you will feel as if you just got transported with a goblin filled world. Also, the family background makes the children more likable, because we can relate to them, we can see where their flaws are coming from, we know that they are good people dealing with some bad history, and we want them to grow past it.

Old-fashioned setting and some surprising twists in the story. Worst of all, she seems excited about the new marriage, and Nick just wishes that it had never happened. Eleven-year-old Nicholas Vargas only thinks his life has been turned upside down after his developer father remarries and moves his new wife and daughter into the soon-to-be completed Mangrove Hollow.

I enjoyed The Field Guide more, but this story wasn’t bad. Jared “Grace” has become a very nasty bully, and seems like a totally unnecessary addition to the book.
