The Spiderwick Chronicles: The Ironwood Tree– Tony Diterlizzi and Holly Black
This was book four of the chronicles. I hadn’t read the other three but had little difficulty getting into the story about the Grace twins, Simon and Jared, and their sister, Mallory who try to survive and win in the world of faeries, gnomes, and trolls. This is essentially a children’s book but the beautiful artwork drew me to it. The story was enchanting. I was very disappointed when I finished the book and found out I had to read book five, the final book in the chronicles, to learn what happens. I definitely recommend this Scholastic book.
