8-Year-Old Boy Review: Spiderwick Chronicles

Review by Tintin, age 8

Author/illustrator: Holly Black & Tony DiTerlizzi
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers (September 2004)

The Spiderwick Chronicles are about a boy named Jared, a girl named Mallory, and another boy named Simon. Jared found a book in which creepy, terrifying, and terrible things would happen. Here are some of the creatures you will find in these books: brownies, goblins, trolls, hobgoblins, griffins, elves, dwarves, and of course Mulgarath the ogre. Now these books have one very important book called Arthur's Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You. There are more creepy and exciting creatures, so have fun with The Spiderwick Chronicles. I would recommend these books to any child ages 7 to 11 years old all around the world.
