THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES, by authors Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black, were already best-sellers even before the recent release of the motion picture. If you haven't read the series of five books, published by Simon & Schuster, you really should, especially if you're a fan of the Harry Potter, Artemis Fowl, or Septimus Heap series'. The books are appropriate for younger readers, but even older ones will enjoy and appreciate the magical world that the authors have created.

With THE FAN'S GUIDE TO THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES, author Lois H. Gresh delves into several areas of the series, beginning with an overview of what they are about. From there you'll find a quiz to discover whether you are, indeed, a Spiderwick fanatic, an overview of Spiderwick characters (both good and evil), a section on magical beings (including another quiz to discover which magical being you would be), and a Top Ten list of the author's favorite events from the books. Interspersed throughout are also a few stories based on characters and events from the books.

The included glossary is also helpful, even though you'll already know most of the terms if you've been following the books. It's great for a quick refresher course, though, with definitions of boggart, hobgoblin, and phooka, just to name a few.

Overall, this is a fun guide for the Spiderwick fan, and a great addition to your library, to be placed right alongside all five books in the series. ( )
