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.

    " i do believe this book hasnt come out yet, but i read all of the other spiderwick books and they were all pretty neat, so i would like to read this one sooner or later. "

    " I read all of the original Spiderwick Chronicles and thought they were mediocre at best, so I really wasn't expecting much out of this book, but I was still disappointed. Obviously these books are not supposed to be Tolkien-level writing, but if I wanted to introduce my children to fantasy literature, I just don't think I'd choose these. For example, there is too much focus on the fantasy aspect of the story and very little on developing strong characters with any kind of moral underpinnings. I'll give it two stars instead of one, however, because I may have lost my edge in evaluating adolescent literature when I turned twelve. "

    " So I haven't read the real Spiderwick C. yet, but will probably finish the first and second books tonight. This was a bit different than I expected. I mean, I think I'd tell that Nixie to shut the hell up and that I didn't owe her anything. Still, good book and perfect for kids 7-10 "
