If someone asked Jared Grace what jobs his brother and sister would be when they grew up, he would have no trouble replying. He would have said that his brother, Simon, would be either a veterinarian or a lion tamer. He would have said that his sister, Mallory, would either be an Olympic fencer or in jail for stabbing someone with a sword. But he couldn't say what job he would grow up to have. Not that anyone asked him. Not that anyone asked his opinion on anything at all.

Jared, Simon, and Mallory Grace move into the Spiderwick estate, discover their great-great uncle Spiderwick's secret library and Field Guide, and realize there is much more to the world around them than they ever imagined.

Also for those of you who have already read the complete Spiderwick series, keep an eye out for the continuation of the Spiderwick series this September.




Beyond The Spiderwick Chronicles 1: The Nixie's Song

By Holly Black & Tony DiTerlizzi

Coming September 07

The Spiderwick adventures continue in the first book in the new Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles series: The Nixie's Song!

The Spiderwick Chronicles leave the old-fashioned charm of New England far behind and head south for some fiendish faerie fun in the hot Florida sun. 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.
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.
