Fine for your kid, but utterly banal for the adult mind. Very typical we-just-moved and no-one-believes-me sort of fare with watered-down but still mischievous fae.

Also, Mark Hamill's narration was terribly disappointing. I'd go print on this one.

I'm behind, I know... But I figured this is the right time to listen to this book. Has anyone ever watched the series or read/listened to these book?

LibrarianRyan The first series of books (the original 5) are amazing. Such good work packed into so few pages at such an easy reading level. The second series is not as successful. The movie is okay, but not fantastic. The cast was a good one, i just wasn't impressed with the translation. 3mo
Caterina I read this series aloud to my younger brother when we were kids, at least however many books were out back then. It was such a fun series to read together and get our imaginations going! Great fodder for play. No movie was out yet. 3mo
Literary.Gem37 Thank you. I got the first 6on audiobook. Something to listen to while I am packing 3mo

@Jackal121 these are the books cym was on about and has given us. But there are 2 we are missing from the set "beyond the spiderwick" might be interesting?

LibrarianRyan I love this series. It‘s similar to fable haven book 1. But for a younger grade and it came out before the Brandon mull series. Series one is better than series two 5mo
hannah-leeloo @LibrarianRyan I've never read them myself so far. I had bought my sister the complete set in a one book special so this is her original set I've received. I am looking forward to trying it. Thank you for your input 🙃📚 5mo
TheSpineView What age reader? These might be a good pick for my grand kids! 5mo
hannah-leeloo @TheSpineView @LibrarianRyan may be able to answer that better than myself. I'd imagine kids around the age of 10? Maybe 5mo
LibrarianRyan @TheSpineView These are a beginning chapter book. Grades 1-2 depending on their reading level. A small step above Magic tree house. 5mo
hannah-leeloo @LibrarianRyan thank you hun 5mo
TheSpineView @LibrarianRyan Thanks so much for the information! 😘 5mo

Obviously this was already a pick for me, but hearing Mark Hamill read these books has made me love them that much more. If you haven‘t listened to these, I highly suggest it.👌🏼

I haven‘t been posting on here as much lately, so I‘m going to do a few posts of updates. The first is The Spiderwick Chronicles. I was trying to find an audiobook to listen to while I cleaned last week, and stumbled upon this series. It was one of my favorites as a kid, and Mark Hamill does a tremendous job of bringing them to life. I‘m on book 4 currently, and totally loving it.😍 #audiobooks #audiocleaning #childhoodfavorites

LibrarianRyan Love this series. The sequel series not as much 6mo

Another great find at Salvation Army ~ I hope someone gets super excited when they find them in my Little Free Library.

This is the first of five in the series, and it explores the lives of Simon, Jared, and Mallory when they discover a brand new world all around them. This is great for older kids and a really good series to start off with if Harry Potter is too advanced for them. I also like that there are illustrations throughout the book.

The black and white sketches hidden throughout the book enhances the fantasy and magic that this story is about.

This modern fantasy was written in 2003 and published by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. It is book 1 out of a series. It is a story about faeries. It depicts adventure, fantasy, and magic. A great story for Young Readers.

Book 14 of the year finished Feb 10, Audio.

This started off so promising and then the final book was just off. It's like they had to rush to finish the series and the 5th book was just really disappointing. Books 1-4 are a solid Pick, but the conclusion really just killed the whole thing for me.

[#BookReview] The Spiderwick Chronicles by Holly Black & Tony DiTerlizzi. These books are so much fun and I am really happy I finally re-read them! This blend of supernatural and mortal worlds is really fun and I live the idea of these cool creatures being hidden in plain sight. This is an amazing series for young readers!

I read these aloud to my son this week. I was hoping for a little something more, but I think they'd be perfect for young readers. We enjoyed them.

My mum has been cleaning out her house, and packed a tonne of my books to give me. From The Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants, to The Spiderwick Chronicles, and the Inkworld series - this first batch was like a time capsule.

I fondly remember reading these books aloud to my little brother when I was old enough to read chapter books. It was a wonderful bedtime activity, and we enjoyed sharing in the magical world of this series! #readathonfaeries @Liberty

I loved these books. They're incredibly short, but they have amazing artwork and very interesting idears. If you like any of the old magical authors, definitely read these books. (I was just reminded of these books because I bought them from my library for a dollar. I was so happy.)

This is a fabulous series of books. I like the individual books but I just purchased the compilation of all five. Hopefully the size does not scare Jaxon away. And yes it is VERY different from the movie.

Leniverse That looks gorgeous. I read them with my daughter earlier this year. We haven't looked at the next series, or further adventures, or whatever they're called. I don't think the local library had all of those. 3y
LibrarianRyan @Leniverse I read the first book of the second series but it wasn't as good. And being that it an older series (for kids books) I could see where maybe they fell apart and they didn't replace them. Ask them to ILL them from another library. 3y
Leniverse Yes, I have since realised that I'm not limited to the three libraries in the county, I can have librarians search out books for me from all over Wales. I have been giving them a lot of extra work since I found out. 😁 If the 2nd series isn't as good, I'm not sure we'll bother. We have so many books on our joint TBR! 3y
