I bought this book for my 4 year old grandson who loves the movie. When he received the book he was so excited and whenever he watches the movie he carries it with him everywhere. The characters in the book are also in the movie and he just loves that. The illustrations of the characters are so real and the information about these characters is so interesting. If you love the movie I would recommend that you get the book to go along with it. They did a great job with this book.

This book is just beautiful it looks exactly like if someone had handwritten and drawn the pages within. It is a work of art that would be enjoyed by all generations. This book helps to educate its readers in the fantasy world and will cause one to look into the folklore of other countries.

Totally fascinating! Adults and the 11 year old were thoroughly impressed and fascinated by the book. I suspect the recipient will spend many weeks reading and rereading the Book.

This is a beautifully illustrated book to accompany the Spiderwick series. There are several fold out pages that my child loves to look at. It is written in a field guide format that allows your child to imagine that they too can find fairies, nymphs and bogarts in their yard. My 9 year old son and his friends have worn out this book at their school library and I purchased it as a replacement for the school.
