Less than half a year ago, Tony and I received a mysterious note from Jared, Simon, and Mallory Grace, three children who have experienced authentic encounters with the beings we call faeries. As hard as it was for us to believe, we came to see that there was no alternative explanation. Now, putting aside personal concerns, we bring their stories to you.

In Lucinda's Secret, things at the Spiderwick estate are getting out of hand. If being attacked by a band of marauding goblins and almost eaten by a bridge troll wasn't enough, now Jared is being harrassed by Thimbletack, the house boggart, and Simon has a very hungry griffin recuperating in the carriage house. Mallory is convinced that the only way to stop the madness is to chuck the Guide. But that's not an option. Only one person can help solve this mystery, their crazy old Aunt Lucinda.

In The Ironwood Tree, the entire faerie world is eager to get their hands on Spiderwick's Guide, but why? And will the Grace kids be left alone now that the Guide has mysteriously disappeared? To make matters even worse, now Mallory has vanished and something foul in the water is killing off all the plants and animals for miles around. And the faerie world's abuzz with the news that a creature with plans to rule the world has offered them a gift to join with him: he's given them a queen. Download and start listening now!

    " A great sequel! Its kind of strange that these were all released in short books, I think they should be all in one book...? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Little Miss and the Legomeister | 2/1/2014

    " This book is a really good early chapter book. It's quite short, and the story's really interesting, and the characters seem real. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Serena | 1/14/2014

    " A little more spooky for the kids but they were still able to sleep, so pretty much I'm loving this series! Plus with 2 chapters a day these are done in like 3 days. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ryan Burt | 1/13/2014

    " I really liked this one as well as the first one. They are rather short and could all be included in one book. Decided to read the books before we went and saw the movie. But just reading the first 2 books (I think the movie will be all 5 but I could be wrong) makes me want to see the movie. "

    " the seeing stone was an action packed book.the best part that i think was when mallory went and took the eye glass and got to see the goblins and stuck her sword right threw ones eye. the goblins eye was oozing out green slim.i thought it was a good book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 m1 Gwen | 10/1/2013

    " I really like this series. The reason I didn't rate this one 5 stars is because it wasn't my favorite in the series even though it was really good. Very intriguing. Love these books! Easy and fun reads! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 8/15/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tyler | 4/8/2013

    " The second book definitely escalates the action of the series and adds a darker tone to the plot. The rest of the elements are consistent with the previous book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kayla8f | 4/7/2013

    " The reason why i read this book is because after reading the first book that my teacher gave me i was hooked to the books. It just made me want to read what else happen in the story. I was every excited to read the rest. That is why i had read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 7/4/2012

    " Cute, yet serious, fun, yet realistic with a dark overtone, these books will have children begging for more, and hoping (and not hoping) that it could be real. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sitti | 6/15/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monica | 6/12/2010

    " My 7 year old son was reading this aloud to me to practice his reading. We got about 2/3 into the book and he was having to force himself to read it. He just lost interest. He's already seen the movie, so that may be why. The events seem to happen slower in the books. "
