In addition to the fifteen creatures featured in the first five Spiderwick adventures, this extensive volume features an additional fifteen creatures to delight and astonish, such as mermaids, gargoyles and leprechauns. It also features snippets from Arthur Spiderwick's journal... information that specifically links the Guide to the Spiderwick Chronicles. There are even cameos from all the favourites in the series. From clever and informative introductory sections on essential materials and faerie world basics, through sections featuring fabulous faerie species, to an addendum created by Jared Grace, correcting Arthur Spiderwick and cross-referencing with the story books, this is the field guide to end all field guides!
