Just when I thought this series could not get any better, man does it ever. The Vargas kids are back in a mess with fantastical creatures. The Giants, as predicted, are indeed waking up and as they fight for territory they are leaving a swath of destruction behind them. Jarod and Laurie are not on their own this time; Laurie tricked their older brother into carrying around a 4 leaf clover, and now he can see
the creatures also. But they don't believe the adults will believe them, and they need to find a solution to the Giant Problem or all of Florida will burn.

I have now read 10 books that are part of the Spiderwick universe by Black and DiTerlizzi and think they are great. I cannot wait for my children to be older so I can share these adventures with them. And I approach the last book with some trepidation.
