When Mallory, Jared and Simon Grace move into their Great Aunt's ramshackle mansion they soon realise that things might not be all that they seem in their new home. They discover a tiny little nest behind the wood panelling and then the next day Mallory wakes to find her hair tied to her bedstead. Then Jared discovers their Great Uncle's book Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide to the Fantastic World Around You and the mystery deepens...

The Field Guide is a beautifully presented book with excellent illustrations which will take older (much older) readers back to the days of Alice in Wonderland.

The books are presented in bite-sized editions (none of this rambling drivel to pad out the pages like Harry Potter novels have become) so little minds won't become over faced with the books before they've even opened them.

The action starts from page one and will keep you hooked through to the final page - which in the days of attention deficit in many children will help to keep wandering minds focussed.

This has all the ingredients to become a classic children's book series and will certainly fuel the imagination of young minds.
