Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great series of book for young children. Shorter than Harry Potter, longer than toddler books, these are great individual stories that add up to a great series. They are similar to the movie, but there's enough that's different to make them worth reading. In fact, I preferred them to the movie, as did the kids. That's a strong recommendation in my books. There are individual reviews of the books out there, so I'll just say that the basic premise is that a group of siblings moves into an old ancestor's house and find a guide to faeries. Yes, faeries are real, and that discovery both opens up new options and gets them into real trouble. The stories are fun to read, involve lots of action, and are at most, PG for a touch of violence. They are a little scary in places, but not enough that I'd worry about nightmares. The kids (two twin boys and their older sister) are believable and interesting, and the writing is suitable for 6-12 year olds.

The books have lots of illustrations in each chapter, and have a couple of color illustrations. The books are of good quality, and give the appearance of being made from older scrap paper. The box is nice, and it all adds up to a nice product. Given the price savings of buying the set as a whole rather than the individual books, this is definitely a great buy for parents and kids alike.

Format: Hardcover
According to Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi, the text of this story was left for them by three mystery kids.

With that stab at blurring the boundaries between fantasy and reality, these two authors slip easily into a haunted house tale that rapidly blossoms into a story of hidden fae and strange creatures. "The Spiderwick Chronicles (Boxed Set)" brings together five extremely brief little books that form one overarcing story, which becomes more tense and eerie as it winds to the inevitable battle with the Big Bad.

After their parents' divorce, the Grace kids -- teenage Mallory and nine-year-old twins Jared and Simon -- move with their mother to a crumbling old Victorian house, owned by a weird old aunt. Jared is having a rough time with all of this, but he's distracted from his personal woes by a "squirrel" scuttling around inside the walls. And their investigations reveal a strange little stash of items that were obviously not taken by a squirrel.

An exploratory trip in a dumbwaiter takes Jared to a hidden library full of strange books on mythic creatures -- and soon strange things start happening to the family. Jared's further investigations uncover a strange little book called "Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide To The Fantastical World Around You," a little guide to faery creatures. Jared begins to believe that the unbelievable might be true -- that there are faeries causing trouble in his new home.

But it becomes painfully obvious what is up when various creatures try to get ahold of the book -- Simon is kidnapped by omnivorous goblins, a search for Arthur Spiderwick leads the kids into a elven trap deep in the woods, and Mallory is sealed in a glass box by malevolent dwarves deep inside an old quarry.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Rhoda C. Hill on Dec 4 2007
Format: Hardcover
for starters I read each of these books to my children and they were totally engrossed. I read to my children everynight, so we've been through a LOT of books!!! However THE SPIDEWICK CHRONICLES was the one series my children could not get enough of. My son wore his clothes inside out for weeks. If I had to do it over and pay $90 it is $90 well spent!! We loved them. My children and I have this system that when we finish a book each of us records in the front of the book what we thought of the book, these books got raved reviews from my children(Daughter 10 and Son 7).

This all in one is a great bargain...I doubt anyone would regret the purchase.
