This book focuses heavily on the history of the Spiderwick family, introducing us to Aunt Lucinda, the only living person who understands what the Grace children are going through, and also giving us a back story of Arthur Spiderwick, to whom the original Field Guide belonged.
The story progresses at a fast pace, aided by beautiful illustrations, making it easy to fly through, and the writing, as always, was concise and flowed nicely.
Jared’s witty character was really brought to life, for me personally, in this installment in the series than any of the others so far. I loved his witty decisions and the way he tackled certain events towards the end of the novel were thoroughly entertaining to read about.
Exciting revelations were made right towards the end of the book, making me even more eager to move on to the next one. You can see my reviews of previou installments in the series, The Field Guide and The Seeing Stone, by clicking on the titles. Another 5/5 stars!
