The Lovereading4Kids comment

The Spiderwick Chronicles is a fast paced story with just enough shadows to chill young readers without scaring them into nightmares. This collector’s picture book offers a visually stunning tour of the enchanted Spiderwick world. It is well packaged, papered in dark colours with titles in suitably spidery antique font, and Tony DiTerlizzi's artwork is splendid.

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.
