A couple of nights ago, my daughter and I finally finished Book 2 in The Spiderwick Chronicles. It’s still a bit scary for my 7-year-old what with the eating of cats by goblins, etc. (We love cats. And dogs. In fact, our old dog Audrey just passed away last week. Sad.) This story and the maturity of the writing are probably a better fit for an 8 or 9-year-old. Still, she’s loving it the way some people love horror movies. So, it’s onward to Book 3! I’ll let you know how it goes.
And yes, I’ll admit—I want to read all of the books before we see the movie. My kid doesn’t even know there’s a movie yet, so this is strictly my bag.
