This will be a write-in book for fans of the bestselling Spiderwick series. There will be fifteen sections featuring text and illustrations about our favourite creatures from the first five books. The remainder of the book is write-in, for children to record their own sightings of these and other faerie creatures. In addition there will be two colour plate inserts. A proportion of the material will be re-use.
Holly Black spent her early years in a decaying Victorian mansion where her mother fed her a steady diet of ghost stories and faerie tales. An avid collector of rare folklore volumes, spooky dolls, and crazy hats, she lives in West Long Branch, New Jersey, with her husband, Theo. This is her first book.

Originally published in 1829, Mary's best-known work 'The Spider and the Fly' has been enjoyed by generations of readers and has become an age old classical cautionary tale. Mary Howitt died in Rome in 1888. Tony DiTerlizzi's unique and unusal artstyle is the perfect complement to Howitt's classic tale. He lives with his wife in Brooklyn, New York.
