Your child will enjoy story The Field Guide: Spiderwick Chronicles if: Loves magic, adventure and intrigue (think fairies, goblins and trolls) Gets drawn into a narrative through illustrations designed to provide extra detail. Tony DiTerlizzi blows me away; he brings the magic to life with his gothic style pencil drawings. Will enjoy getting to really know characters and how they develop. Wants a book that is fairly short and easy to read. As in all the books in The Spiderwick Chronicles series, The Field Guide can develop self-confidence and reading stamina. It is really important for a reluctant reader that books are finished and enjoyed before the interest in them is lost.
