Book 1 of The Spiderwick Chroniclesin which Mallory, Simon and Jared get acquainted with their new home but find many unexpected things.
It all started when Jared Grace found their great uncle's book, "Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide to the Fantastic World Around You" and the Grace kids realise that they are not alone in their new house. Now Mallory, Simon and Jared want to tell their story but it seems the faeries will do everything in their power to stop them...
It's up to you to spread the word about their discovery. But heed their warnings, wear some red, turn your clothes inside out - all anti-faerie devices - and get ready to enter a world that you never knew existed... It's closer than you think!
