SummaryAdd a Summary
This is my favourite book in the series. It has strong characters and introduces us to the Spiderwick family. The heroes must find the book that Spiderwick wrote, and learn to trust each other and forgive past grievances. We are also introduced to the world of fairies, and to the one helper that will remain true to the family through all their adventures. The end of the book is defiantly a cliff hanger, so you will have to get the next book in order to find out what happens.
When the Grace children go to stay at their Great Aunt Lucinda's worn Victorian house, they discover a field guide to fairies and other creatures and begin to have some unusual experiences.
