Perfect stocking filler. All the books in the Spiderwick Chronicles are truly magical and I now realize why they’ve been such a hit with children from 7-12. They’re fun and they’re easy to read and this one is a must for every Spiderwick fan as it gives you every detail you’ll ever need to look after your fairy. This particular title is also a terrific introduction to The Spiderwick Chronicles for all those children new to it. The illustrations are wonderfully detailed and the whole book is beautifully packaged and comes complete with a huge poster that has been cleverly folded to form the cover of the book. So, if you not sure what a child might like as a present this Christmas, we reckon this one is a really safe bet and we’re sure adults will enjoy reading it with children as well.

Synopsis

Arthur Spiderwick's Care And Feeding Of Sprites by Holly Black, Tony DiTerlizzi

When 'Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You' was published, it revealed an unbelievable assortment of faeries, each one more exquisite than the next. Now, in this beautiful companion, readers are offered a detailed in-sight to one particularly prominent and intriguing species of faeries, the Sprites. Because of their easy nature, more and more Sprites have become part of the common household ~ often to the surprise of the people who live there ~ and many have been taken in as pets by those who have developed "the Sight" to see them. Offering guidelines to keeping Sprites healthy and happy by learning how to identify them, feed them, dress them, and house them, this unique book shows these colourful faeries in their full glory.

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.
