Bruised and battered, Jared, Simon, and Mallory return home to locate the mansion ransacked and learn that Mulgarath has made off with both the Spiderwick Guide and their mother! But before they can face Mulgarath, they'll have to rescue Arthur Spiderwick from Lorengorm and the elves. In honor of the tenth anniversary of the #1 New York Times bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles series, which has more than 12 million copies in print worldwide, this edition of The Wrath of Mulgarath features a bigger trim size and an original cover with all-new art from Tony Di Terlizzi. With only the help of Thimbletack, Hogsqueal, and Byron, the Grace kids have to defeat Mulgarath and his goblin army.
Holly Black and Tony Di Terlizzi pull off an impressive 5 for five with Wrath of Mulgarath, the satisfyingly dramatic conclusion to their series, The Spiderwick Chronicles. Right after the gory conclusion of the The Ironwood Tree, we don't get even a moment's reprieve before the action picks up again, in a starting chapter entitled, fittingly,"IN WHICH the World Is Turned Upside Down. We get a dramatic rescue, a clever finish to a fearsome foe (with some thanks to Hogsqueal from book two) , and a lengthy denouement that leads to a final cryptic note from the author and illustrator:"Are there more ogres / and dragons to slay?"Thirteen-year-old Mallory and nine-year-old twins Jared and Simon return for the Spiderwick Estate only to find their home in shambles, with trash and broken furniture scattered across the lawn and Simon's griffin chasing a"goblin"across the roof. The faerie world that the Grace kids have so slowly probed in this series has finally come house to roost. / But you still won't think / what's coming for you!"(Ages 6 to 10) --Paul Hughes / Ask Tony and Holly. / Is there more mayhem, / perhaps, on the way? / They'll swear that it's true. Black and Di Terlizzi pack a lot into the finale of this beautifully developed series, with dragons and goblins and elves--and even a magical cameo by Arthur Spiderwick (the long-lost author of the disappearing-reappearing Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You ).
