In the continuation of the series, our hero Jared and his sibling companions adventure out of the house and onto the grounds of the Spiderwick Estate.

Younger readers should read this with an adult as some of the details can be scary.

A great series for young readers as the stories aren't too long, and there are just five books in the series. Allows young readers a sense of accomplishment as each book, and then the series is finished. Fun for parents too!

The Grace children visit their Great-Aunt Lucinda, who is now in a psychiatric hospital. When they speak to her, they learn more about the world of faerie creatures, the Field Guide, and its author, Arthur Spiderwick, who was Aunt Lucinda's father. Arthur had disappeared when Lucinda was still a little girl and the Grace children later find out where he disappeared to when they stumble upon a forest of elves. On their journey they meet Stray-Sods, grass that can move, and a Phooka, a strange creature that talks only in riddles. Jared is captured by the elves, but tricks them by saying he is "Simon" and they promise to keep "Simon" there until they bring the Guide. Jared says he isn't "Simon" but Jared, and they let him out but only by promising them that they will bring the Field Guide to them when it is found
