Kaksoisveljet Jared ja Simon muuttivat yhdessä äitinsä ja sisarensa Malloryn kanssa eriskummalliseen Spiderwickin eli Lukkivyöryn kartanoon. Kukaan heistä ei vain aavistanut, mitä talo kätkee sisälleen.

Oudot tapahtumat kartanossa on hetkeksi tauonneet ja Gracen sisarusten elämä on palautunut suorastaan pahaenteisen normaaliksi. Kun Mallory valmistautuu miekkailuotteluun,

ตอนชวงผจญภัยในถำคนแคระสนุกดี แตภาพรวมทังเลมเราวายังเรือยๆ ไมมีอะไรนาตืนเตนมากนัก จาเรดกับไซมอนเวลาแทคทีมกันกดูเทหไปอีกแบบ เอาจริงๆอานมาสีเลมแลวเราวาเนือเรืองเบาโหวงไปหนอยนะ การเคลียรปมในแตละเลมกงายมาก แตถาคิดวาหนังชุดนีกคลายๆกับนิทานอีสปเลมบางๆเหมือนของบานเรากถือวาสนุกใชไดเลย

There are huge chunks of new scenes in this fourth instalment that were not in the movie. So it's like reading a different storyline. I'm really warming to Mallory and Simon, too.

As usual, the drawings by Tony DiTerlizzi are as breath-taking as ever.

Things are getting creepy and tense, but still loads of fun. Excited for the Wrath of Mulgarath...I mean, not really...excited for the book...not so much the actual wrath. That can remain within the pages, please.

This book series is amazing! I’ve only got one more book left to go!

I really love that the kids are growing closer.

The further I get into this series, the more I like it. These are great books, wonderfully written and illustrated. Black and DiTerlizzi have done an amazing job. These books in some ways are like C.S. Lewis's Narnia books, and in other ways like J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, but they are not overtly religious the way Lewis's are and they are not as dark as Tolkien's. They will introduce children to the concept of wonder, and believing in things unseen, or at least unseen by most. As the s ...more

I don't plan to go into great detail about the storyline, because I'm a firm believer that a story can only be truly reviewed by a person's impression of the story. I think it would be a waste of time to go over the plot again...that's what the title page of the book is for.

Damn, I was not prepared how cold and industrial dwarves are! Is it sad that I think this is my favorite out of all of them! Finally, some darkness has been added to the plot and we finally get to see the villain of the story

Me ha encantado, sencillo, directo, entrañable, lleno de seres fantásticos. No entiendo por qué solo hicieron una peli de estos libros. Los recomiendo mucho a los que os guste Harry Potter.

No ha sido mi favorito.

Los dos primeros capítulos prometían muchísimo, no contaré mucho para evitar spoilers, sentí que la historia empezaba a madurar un poco y se creaban muchas incognitas (mas de las que ya tenemos), pero lamentablemente el libro fue cayendo poco a poco, todo el desarrollo fue lento e innecesario en mi opinión. No me agradó que pasaban cosas muy infantiles (lo sé, seguro un niño lo disfrutaría). El final casi salva el libro, todo depende de lo que ocurra en el siguiente (y últ

After randomly remembering how much I loved this book series as a kid, I picked up The Spiderwick Chronicles to see if it held up over the years, and I was pleasantly surprised. Cashing in on the children's-fantasy kick of the early 2000's, this heavily illustrated book is in the same fantastical vein of the Harry Potter series with the childish, macabre aesthetic of A Series of Unfortunate Events.

I can honestly say that this series is one that was really let down by the film adaptation. Back when the film was released I found myself excited for what was to come, only to be extremely disappointed with what we were given. If you’re someone who enjoyed the film then I really do suggest that you read the books to find out just how great they actually are rather than taking the film standpoint on it.

The fourth instalment of the series follows in the footsteps of the three previous books as it

It frustrates me that there are five "books" but each is barely a chapter.

I think I would have enjoyed the series a lot more when I was younger. It frustrates me that the world building is good but barely explored and so limited. Just because it's a children's book, it doesn't mean it has to be dumbed down. Only simplified.

I loved it so much,
this is a book that is difficult to describe. it was so cute ..
The end of the story is better than the beginning. So, I'm sure to read all the numbers of (The Spiderwick Chronicles) .

This fourth installment in the Spiderwick Chronicles, does not quite hold up to its predecessors, but that doesn't mean it's not an excellent story. This one takes us deeper into the faerie world as the Grace children are pulled into even more faerie schemes.

For being such short books, and written for a young audience, these stories really pack a punch. One thing that I enjoy is the relationship between Jared, Simon, and Mallory. They are a realistic set of siblings. They each have their own in

I really liked the dwarf kingdom/quarry. I really enjoyed the growth of Mallory's character. She's growing up, and it's nice to see the progression. I didn't totally love the added drama with Jared and his mom (the whole "he won't stop misbehaving" thing). And I didn't love that this one ended so openly. I get that the series is sort of wrapping up (thi

La historia sigue avanzando a zancadas. Creo que este libro es el que menos me ha gustado hasta ahora, tal vez porque todo fue acción y menos acertijos. Pero ya quiero saber cómo acaba.

Esta vez he sentido cierta pena por Jared, llegar al punto de que tus padres se rindan contigo sabiendo que no es tu culpa… puede ser devastador.

Sí o sí termino la saga esta semana.
