Seller: Holly Black
Offered: One copy of Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You, signed to you (or your child!) personally by Holly Black and Tony DeTerlizzi.
The Spiderwick Chronicles is a briskly paced story with just enough darkness to chill young readers without scaring them into nightmares. These hardcover books are well-packaged, papered in dark colors with titles in suitably spidery antique font, and Tony DiTerlizzi's artwork is splendid, a bit like classic Disney animation reflected in a funhouse mirror designed by Arthur Rackham. -- Charlene Russo, SFSite.com
