Lucinda’s Secret (The Spiderwick Chronicles, #3), Tony DiTerlizzi

The Spiderwick Chronicles is a series of children's books by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black. They chronicle the adventures of the Grace children, twins Simon and Jared and their older sister Mallory, after they move into the Spiderwick Estate and discover a world of fairies that they never knew existed.

The first book, The Field Guide, was published in 2003 and then followed by The Seeing Stone (2003), Lucinda's Secret (2003), The

This was my favourite so far.
They are super fast, easy and entertaining!

I read the Spiderwick Chronicles back when I was quite young, maybe eight or nine. My sister and I read the crap out these books (we must have read them 15 times, no joke) and I've been wanting to revist this series and the wonderful fantasy world that Holly and Tony created for awhile now but I've finally gotten around to it.

The writing partnership of Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi is remarkable and this series is by far some of the most well written literature that I've ever read.

So far all of the books in this series has been 5 out of 5 🌟 for me. This one was no different. This was also really amazing and we also met some more creatures like elves and phooka. I am loving this series so much.

Holly Black truly has the uncanny ability to weave out a good story that circles around the fey folks. I've always enjoyed her fairy themed books. This one didn't disappoint.
Plus, the beautiful artworks Tony DiTerlizzi drew really blended in well with the story.

Love love love these! These are the kind of books I wish I could have read when I was a kid. When the first book was published I was already in college. But when I was 7-10 I read Boxcar Children and pony books. I was always a huge fan of sci-fi, but didn't like fantasy until I was an adult. Plus I just don't think this kind of books were available to me. I don't specifically remember where I got my books from at that age. Did my parents buy them for me? Did my elementary school have a library? ...more

And so on to a little bit of light and fun read (after all I am not really the target audience of this books - although I am sure if you spoke to some of my friends they may say otherwise).

This is the middle book in the series of 5 Spiderwick stories and as such I am very much in the realms of "mid-series" territory. i.e. the contents of the book are hard to refer to without creating spoilers for the previous instalments. Additionally any questions or plot action are clearly intended to support

I read this book with my son as part of his summer reading, and I asked him to describe the book for my review. He responded that this is a book that is difficult to describe. He liked the mystery, and really enjoyed how the whimsical illustrations supported elements of the narrative. He found this book (number 3 of 5) to be interesting because of the mysteries that are introduced: The reader is finally introduced to Aunt Lucinda and the Wood Elves make their first appearance. There is less acti ...more

Simon, Jared and Mallory pay a visit to their aunt Lucinda after learning that she might not be so crazy even though she’s been locked away in an asylum for quite some time. It turns out that she had troubles with mischievous fairies just like the Grace kids and she offers them some guidance on how to confront the problem.

There were some interesting tidbits revealed about Arthur (the author of The Guide) and his history with the fairy world and we got to meet some royal denizens of the realm. I

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 third book is another great addition to the series, the book which really gets the ball ro
In yet antoher Spiderwick Chronicel, the kids go visit their Anut Lucinda to ask if she,too, knew about the fairies, and how she can help them get rid of all the trouble they've been getting into. In the proscess, Simon almost ruins his future by eating magical fruit, and Jared and Mallory get into a fight.
Back home, even MORE danger comes their way....

Read this book to find out more!
I really liked it because, bsides talking to trolls, riding griffons and eating cookies, the Grace children argue

Yet another fun adventure with Jared, Simon, and Mallory as they explore more of the faerie world. They meet their aunt Lucinda Spiderwick, hoping to find answers, but things might be more of a mystery than ever. What started out as a fun adventure is becoming more and more dangerous the more the children learn.

For being such short stories, these really pack in a lot and manage to develop the characters very well. Each of the three siblings has their own distinct voice and you can pick that up

Recommends it for: Readers Who Enjoyed the First Two 'Spiderwick Chronicles'
The three Grace siblings, who discovered their great-great uncle's field guide to faeries in the first volume of The Spiderwick Chronicles, and confronted kidnapping goblins in the second, are faced with less-than benevolent elves in this third installment of the series. When Mallory suggests that they should rid themselves of the field guide because possessing it will involve them in too much danger, Jared is almost beside himself with anger and fear. He convinces Mallory and Simon to join him ...more

Not only do Jared, Simon, and Mallory have to deal with Thimbletack pestering the household constantly, but they are learning how to solve the mystery of their great uncle Arthur Spiderwick. They are trying to learn about all the creatures that surround their house, and how the field guide came to be. The kids learn that their Aunt Lucinda (Arthur's daughter) lives in a psychiatric hospital near by, and they think they will finally get the answers they seek by talking to her. Lucinda tells them ...more

And one more that I finished today to catch up with the kid. This was my personal favorite so far. The Phooka and the wood elves were great additions to the world. Two more to go!

Exciting! But I’m not done complaining that these are short. Waiting for the next Harry Potter book was almost painful. I cannot even imagine what it was like waiting for the next in the series of these books... and then finding them so short. Maybe they are for a younger age group... but I still think there is much potential for being longer whilst still allowing young readers to enjoy.

Ok... I’m done complaining. The next two are longer so party time!! 🥳🥳

This story is about Mallory and her twin little brothers Jared and Simon who move to their aunt's country estate with their mother when their parents divorce. They discover a field guide in the house which unlocks a magical world around them and send them through a series of enchanted events.

I loved this series! The pace was perfect, the tone appropriate, the characters absolutely believable and realistic (a trait which I feel is critical in enabling a younger reader to relate to the story), and

I thought "Lucinda's Secret" by Holly Black was very interesting. I decided to try something new and ended up enjoying this book. Lucinda has a niece and a nephew who come over for a period of time. The kids, around the age of ten, ask their aunt Lucinda about the mysterious little people. Lucinda can only tell them as much as she knows. The kids discover the little people in the library that was once their great great uncle's library. The kids' curiosity leads them into a whole other world of t ...more
