“ The book The Spiderwick Chronicles was a book that I enjoyed very greatly. This was a book of fantasy, adventure, and creatures that you think were not real. It was written by Holly Black and the illustrator is Tony DiTerlizzi. One of my favorite things about the book is how the illustrator brought these magical creature to life, even though there were very few pictures the ones that were in the book were ones that had my mind in the clouds. Some of the main points of this wonderful book were that the main characters (Jared, Simon, and their sister) were determined to accomplish what they needed to, also that with an imagination anything is possible.
Jared, Simon, and their doubtful sister eventually agreed on what they needed to do to keep the book away from Mulgarath. They teamed up and worked together even when things were not going well. For example they have been chased by goblins and many other mysterious creatures yet they choose to accomplish what they set out to do. Jared had a very imaginative mind, he had to persuade his brother and his sister that the creatures that he was seeing and reading about were true. If he was not imaginative then he would have never know that a whole other world would be destroyed by the evil Mulgarath and his minions. All Mulgarath would have to do is get the book and learn all about them.... Then destroy them.
The author (Holly Black) really makes you feel like you are a part of the story, that is one of my favorite things about this book is that you can really experience the story and go through a world that doesn't exist. You will travel with Simon, Jared, and their sister and ride a griffen and attack dragons. You will be surprised when Mulgarath tricks you into believing he is who he really is not, he is a changeling that will make you question everyone that you know. In the end you will succeed by recovering the book once again, though you will never know what Mulgarath's next move is going to be. ”
