Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi's three adventurous Grace children are back -- and learning more about Arthur Spiderwick's field guide from Aunt Lucinda and a band of elves -- in the third installment of the popular Spiderwick Chronicles.
With mystery and supernatural suspense in every page turn, this entry has Mallory, Simon, and Jared learning more than expected about their book. When they visit Aunt Lucy in the nursing home, she tells them that in her youth, she was wrongly accused of having the field guide and warns them to leave the house and get rid of the book, lest they become harassed and charmed like she has been. The Grace kids suddenly realize that their treasured book has been stolen, and after they find a map in Uncle Arthur's library, they come face to face with elves who almost capture Jared and hint that Uncle Arthur may still be alive.
Another fast-paced episode that kids won't want to put down, Lucinda's Secret will keep you thirsty for more. The ending is a cliff-hanger that will leave you wondering what Mallory has up her sleeve, while the book includes numerous intriguing hints about what's to come. Keep yourselves braced! Matt Warner
