Synopsis

The Seeing Stone - Spiderwick Chronicles 2 by Holly Black, Tony DiTerlizzi

The Grace kids are just beginning to get used to Aunt Lucinda's strange old mansion when Simon suddenly disappears. At first Mallory thinks the twins are pulling some kind of prank, but when it becomes obvious that he's been snatched by goblins, Jared and his sister, Mallory, have to rely on the help of a mischievous house boggart, a nasty bridge troll, not to mention a loudmouthed hobgoblin, to get Simon back (and uncover why he was snatched in the first place). With the aid of a seeing stone the true nature of the secret world around them is now revealed. It's important the Grace kids tell their story but the faeries will do everything to stop them... Their world is closer than you think... It's here... The Spiderwick Chronicles is now a major motion-picture!

Acclaimed children’s book creator, Tony DiTerlizzi was born into an artistic household on September 6, 1969. Being the first of three visually adept children, it didn’t take long for his family and friends to realize that he was one strange, but talented lad. At an early age Tony began embracing the whimsical, the wondrous, and the surreal, all of which sparked his wild imagination.

Holly Black was born in a decrepit Victorian house in New Jersey. Her mother, a painter and doll-maker, fed her books on ghosts and faeries that formed much of her later views on the world. She also developed a fear of the dark. Nonetheless, Holly spent a happy childhood cooking up imaginary witches brews with her younger sister, Heidi, and tending to the needs of her pet rats.

In Summer 2003, Tony and Holly collaborated on the New York Times bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles. This five-book series has been called "vintage Victorian fantasy" by the New York Post and Time Magazine reported that "the books wallow in their dusty Olde Worlde charm." Also receiving starred reviews in Publisher's Weekly and Kirkus, the Spiderwick Chronicles have been translated into 27 languages worldwide.
