Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

A beautifully accomplished, treasure of a book which makes its subject matter seem completely real, even though it is drawn wholly from imagination.

Synopsis

Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You by Holly Black, Tony DiTerlizzi

In addition to the fifteen creatures featured in the first five Spiderwick adventures, this extensive volume features an additional fifteen creatures to delight and astonish, such as mermaids, gargoyles and leprechauns. It also features snippets from Arthur Spiderwick's journal...information that specifically links the Guide to the Spiderwick Chronicles. There are even cameos from all the favourites in the series. From clever and informative introductory sections on essential materials and faerie world basics, through sections featuring fabulous faerie species, to an addendum created by Jared Grace, correcting Arthur Spiderwick and cross-referencing with the story books, this is the field guide to end all field guides!

Acclaimed children’s book creator, Tony DiTerlizzi was born into an artistic household on September 6, 1969. Being the first of three visually adept children, it didn’t take long for his family and friends to realize that he was one strange, but talented lad. At an early age Tony began embracing the whimsical, the wondrous, and the surreal, all of which sparked his wild imagination.

In Summer 2003, Tony and Holly collaborated on the New York Times bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles. This five-book series has been called "vintage Victorian fantasy" by the New York Post and Time Magazine reported that "the books wallow in their dusty Olde Worlde charm." Also receiving starred reviews in Publisher's Weekly and Kirkus, the Spiderwick Chronicles have been translated into 27 languages worldwide.
