Uh-oh. The kids are in danger again. All because of that silly Faerie Guide. Gotta hurry to the next one to see what happens next. :-) ( )

These three are short, but they were so woven to be one story, that I'm giving them only one review. They are beyond adorable. I adore them and I want to have them for my kids.

And I love how all the races are done, the words in each of them, and how they connect. And the art! How can I not tell you about the art! Half of the fun of moving on through any of the stories is the art that's everywhere, brightening everything.

I love Mallory, Jared and Simon in their own ways, and I love how completely un-cliche they each are really. I'm looking forward to getting the rest of Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles one day too! ( )

Book 4 of 5 of the amazing series Spiderwick Chronicles! A shame they omitted this one from the movie entirely. Read my review of the series here, as this review applies to every book in the series. https://www.librarything.com/work/62473/reviews/227972510 ( )
