The Spiderwick adventures didn’t end with the The Wrath of Mulgarath, the fifth book in that series. Did you know there’s a Beyond Spiderwick trilogy too? These bestselling books are perfect for kids who’ve already read and enjoyed The Spiderwick Chronicles because not only are they filled with all-new Spiderwick adventures, they’re written for a slightly older audience (grade level 2-6).
The Spiderwick Chronicles leave the old-fashioned charm of New England far behind and head south for some fiendish faerie fun in the hot Florida sun. Eleven-year-old Nicholas Vargas only thinks his life has been turned upside down after his developer father remarries and moves his new wife and daughter into the soon-to-be completed Mangrove Hollow.
But an “expedition” to a nearby lake turns up a little nixie with a giant problem – the huge, lumbering, fire-breathing variety – and it’s up to Nick; his stepsister, Laurie; and his big brother, Julian (plus a familiar face from the original Spiderwick Chronicles) to figure out the best way to stop a host of rampaging giants before all of Florida goes up in smoke.
Talk about out of the frying pan, into the fire! I was pretty sure that my freaky stepsister and that freaky field guide of hers would ruin my life.
But now it looks like they’re going to ruin all of Florida, too!
Okay, maybe that’s not fair. Maybe all these stupid giants would be waking up anyway, but if it wasn’t for her and that book, I’d be home playing video games and this would be someone else’s giant problem!
In the final installment of Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles, Nick and Laurie had thought they solved their giant problems when they drove all the giants into the sea. But now, the Grace kids have come back to tell them they may have more trouble coming their way!
It turns out the giants control the population of Hydra, a dragon like creature that is creating sinkholes all over Florida. But with the mermaids refusing to return the giants to the shore, the nixie’s still missing and the threat of a destroyed Florida drawing closer, the kids have to take matters in their own hands.
Will Nick and Laurie be able to stop the destruction they unwittingly caused? Can a new giant hunter help save the day? Can Arthur Spiderwick’s Field Guide help them out of this or are they on their own?
Find out in the final conclusion of the Spiderwick saga!
