The Seeing Stone~Holly Black & Tony DiTerlizzi | Review

Title: The Seeing Stone (Spiderwick Chronicles #2)
Author: Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi
Genre: Children's Fantasy
Length: 108 Pages
Release: 2000

This second installment in the Spiderwick Chronicles held up well with the first one. The characters were once again a great group to tag along with. Mallory, Jared, and Simon seem like real siblings that I am joining on these adventures. 

The plot continues to build on information we received in The Field Guide as Jared and his siblings delve deeper into the faerie world. And things are not always nice. This time we deal with goblins, trolls, kidnapping, and a few other unpleasant things. 

These are very magical and quite superbly written, so I don't want to delve too deeply into the story and plot. They might be for children, but anyone can enjoy them and I highly recommend that you give the series a read. I can already tell that I will revisit them many times in the future.
