The Grace children are currently living in their Great Aunt's ramshackle mansion and have discovered their Great Uncle's book Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide to the Fantastic World Around You. This old manuscript describes how to identify faeries, goblins and other magical creatures living in the same world as you and me. And just as the Grace children had expected all along - these creatures are everywhere and many of them aren't very nice...

The Seeing Stone is the second in the six-part series: The Spiderwick Chronicles. This volume sees the Grace children being given a lens of stone by one of their new tiny friends. This allows them to see the nasty goblins who are up to no good.

As with the first book, The Seeing Stone is engaging from the start - there certainly isn't time for a young child's mind to wander. This is also the perfect book to read to children at bedtime - it will certainly get them to rush up to bed each night to hear what happens next.

For those disillusioned with the state of new fiction for children, this will make you realise that there are still writers, illustrators and publishers who give a damn.
