Discover the Field Guide that started it all in this lavishly illustrated guide to the world of the #1 New York Times bestselling Spiderwick series—now with refreshed art and updated backmatter!

In the #1 New York Times bestselling series, The Spiderwick Chronicles, readers were enthralled by the account of siblings Jared, Simon, and Mallory Grace, as they battled dwarves, goblins, elves, and a diabolical ogre in their efforts to hold on to their great-great uncle Arthur Spiderwick’s life work—now collected in one volume!

Beginning with a thoughtful and informative introduction, progressing through six detailed sections featuring thirty-one faerie species, and culminating with an addendum that includes observations supplied by Jared Grace, this classic compendium to the worldwide Spiderwick phenomenon delivers enough information to satisfy even the most demanding faerie enthusiast. Not only will readers learn the habits and habitats of the fourteen fantastical beings featured in the bestselling chapter books, but they will be delighted and astonished by an additional seventeen creatures. Also included are dozens of snippets from Arthur Spiderwick’s personal journal as well as cameos from a few series favorites.

In this refreshed edition, the restored art is more vibrant than ever, and there is additional content newly discovered from Arthur Spiderwick’s archives, featuring creatures from books six through eight!
