Care and Feeding of Sprites (The Spiderwick Chronicles )

by Holly Black Tony Diterlizzi

Got Sprites? Many would have you believe that sprites (or "fairies" as they're often called) are sweet and pretty and ultimately peaceful creatures. But don't let the carefree nature of these dazzling beguilers fool you. Because while they do make for awesome pets (or, if you prefer, companions), these are not creatures to be handled lightly. So forget everything you know -- or think you know -- about sprites, and listen to the experts from the International Sprite League as they, with the assistance of the creative team that brought you the bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles, provide a resource that will prove to be as essential for the novice sprite keeper as a strong cage and eyes in the back of his or her head.

The Field Guide (Spiderwick Chronicles Book 1)

by Holly Black Tony Diterlizzi

In this first book in a series of five, we meet 13 year old Mallory and her 9 year old twin brothers Simon and Jared. They are moving in to their aunt's huge but falling apart old house with their mom after her divorce. Jared has been fighting at school since his father left, so when his sister and brother wake up bruised, his twin's tadpoles are found frozen in the ice cube tray, and the kitchen is wrecked with broken dishes and eggs and spilled cereal, milk and flour everywhere, mom blames Jared. The children thought mice were making the scuttling sounds they heard in the walls, but when they investigate, they find a nest of junk, a hidden library, and an old book about faeries which suggests the hidden creature is far more dangerous than mice. The children quarrel like most brothers and sisters, but they also cooperate to discover the secrets of the old house. Along with the solution to the mystery, they get a warning; "'Throw the book away, toss it in a fire. If you do not heed, you will draw their ire.'" What new dangers will they face? Find out in the exciting sequel, The Seeing Stone.

G Is for One Gzonk!: An Alpha-number-bet Book

by Tony Diterlizzi Tiny Diterlooney

Ages 4-7 Welcome to my silly dilly take on ABC. It's lots of fun and really odd, as you will quickly see. For they're no "leaping lizards" here. No "bears that bounce a ball." In fact, these zany critters have never been seen at all. So turn the page and cast a gaze on this menagerie, but don't forget the beasts within were all made up by me! - Tiny DiTerlooney

A Giant Problem (Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles #2)

by Holly Black Tony Diterlizzi

Talk about out of the frying pan, into the fire! I was pretty sure that my freaky stepsister and that freaky field guide of hers would ruin my life. But now it looks like they're going to ruin all of Florida, too! Okay, maybe that's not fair. Maybe all these stupid giants would be waking up anyway, but if it wasn't for her and that book, I'd be home playing video games and this would be someone else's giant problem!

Before the end of The Search for WondLa, Eva Nine had never seen another human, but after a human boy named Hailey rescues her along with her companions, she couldn't be happier. Eva thinks she has everything she's ever dreamed of, especially when Hailey brings her and her friends to the colony of New Attica, where humans of all shapes and sizes live in apparent peace and harmony. But all is not idyllic in New Attica, and Eva Nine soon realizes that something sinister is going on--and if she doesn't stop it, it could mean the end of everything and everyone on planet Orbona.

Featuring an abundance of lavish two-color illustrations and spot art throughout and introducing a host of remarkable characters that reinforce the importance of friendship, A Hero for WondLa has all the hallmarks of a classic book--of the future.

The Search for WondLa (Search of Wondla #1)

by Tony Diterlizzi

When a marauder destroys the underground sanctuary that Eva Nine was raised in by the robot Muthr, the twelve-year-old girl is forced to flee aboveground. She is searching for anyone else like her, for she knows that other humans exist because of an item she treasures--a scrap of cardboard on which is depicted a young girl, an adult, and a robot, with the strange word, "WondLa." In these alien surroundings, Eva Nine befriends Rovender Kitt, a curmudgeonly wanderer, with whom she travels in search of other humans. But Besteel, who invaded Eva Nine's sanctuary, is following them and wants to capture Eva Nine. With its classic prose and breathtaking illustrations, The Search for WondLa begins a trilogy that is sure to inspire dreams. As a bonus, the maps in this book are revealed in three-dimensions, with audio, through Augmented Reality. In his vision of a future forged by centuries of tradition, Caldecott Honor Winner Tony DiTerlizzi, co-creator of the New York Times-bestselling Spiderwick series, honors traditional children's literature in this space-age adventure: one that is as complex as an alien planet, but as simple as a child's wish for a place to belong.

Fearing the Ogre will kill and destroy the good things in the world, Jared, Simon and Mallory flee home to tell their mother everything and ask for her help. Simon's griffin is on the roof trying to kill a goblin, the yard is trashed, the windows smashed and the front door bashed. Inside, the dishes are broken, the furniture in heaps, the beds are in tatters and the house brownie weeps. Mother has been kidnapped by Mulgarath's goblins. Jared speeds to ask the elves and Arthur Spiderwick for advice. Simon and Mallory follow him on the griffin with Thimbletack and Hogsqueal. They must rescue Mom from a castle made of junk protected by bands of armed Goblins and lizard-like dragons whose touch burns and poisons. When they finally reach their unconscious mother in a tower room, treacherous Mulgarath offers to spare Simon, Mallory and Mom if Jared gives up his life. Every second the bragging ogre's magic makes the children's situation more hopeless. Will their courage and cleverness be enough?
