What a delightful book this is. This was the first book I’ve read in the Spiderwick Chronicles and I quickly found myself immersed in the story of Nicholas Vargas and his sister, Laurie. Add to this Noseeum Jack, a humorous character with a huge walking stick, a sharp machete and lots of advice on tracking giants.

I fell in love with the mischievous and voracious hobgoblin Sandspur and allowed myself to drift away on the magical songs sung by the wise, but tricky, Merpeople. Although Nick seemingly outwits the giants and saves the world at last, as I turn the final page, I wonder whether Nick’s triumph will see us well into Book Three. I hope so. I hope to read more of the Spiderwick Chronicles in the coming months.
