With his mother dead, Nick is none too happy when his father remarries and he has to give up his bedroom to his new stepsister, Laurie.
He's even less happy to find that she's a weirdo who believes in the fairies and the unseen magical world she has read about in The Spiderwick Chronicles.
But he's really unhappy to discover that she's right. It does have one bit that long-time fans will enjoy, though: an appearance in the story by the author, illustrator, and the twins on whom the series is supposedly based. Nick and Laurie go to see them at a book signing, hoping for some advice in dealing with a problem with a giant, and are vastly disappointed. But in the next book the basic story will have to pick up considerably, and Nick and Laurie will have to become a whole lot more appealing, to hold onto fans of the original series.
This is the beginning of a new series spun off The Spiderwick Chronicles. The characters are new, the setting changed to Florida, but the concept is the same: we are surrounded by an unseen, mostly malevolent, world of magical creatures, and certain magical items here a four-leaf clover and the water a nixie has swum in can give one the Sight to see it. Families can talk about the idea of an unseen world all around us.

Find out about new books, tour dates, and other cool stuff here first. Under: Middle Grade Novels. 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. The Spiderwick Chronicles have flown south, but even the hot Florida sun has dulled the mysterious little creatures that bedevil the unsuspecting. This case involves a beguiling water creature, a pack of fire-breathing giants, and Nicholas Vargas, a preteen boy with problems of his own.
