New box set of all 5 bestselling hardcover books in slipcase

For lovers of the bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles series, this collector's set includes all five original bestselling titles

  1. The Field Guide

  2. The Seeing Stone

  3. Lucinda's Secret

  4. The Ironweed Tree

  5. The Wrath of Mulgarth

The books chronicle the adventures of the Grace children, twins Simon and Jared and their older sister Mallory, after they move into the eponymous Spiderwick Estate and discover a world of faeries that they never knew existed. It all started with a mysterious letter left at a tiny bookstore for authors Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black. Its closing lines: "We just want people to know about this. The stuff that has happened to us could happen to anyone." Little could they imagine the remarkable adventure that awaited them as they followed Jared, Simon, and Mallory Grace and a strange old book into a world filled with elves, goblins, dwarves, trolls, and a fantastical menagerie of other creatures. The oddest part is in entering that world, they didn't leave this one!


 About the Authors

Tony DiTerlizzi was born into an artistic household on September 6, 1969. At an early age he began embracing the whimsical, the wondrous and the surreal, all of which sparked his wild imagination.

Tony grew up in South Florida amid palm trees and year-round sunshine. While he enjoyed collecting insects, snorkeling and camping, he also loved to draw and read. During this time he was introduced to the works of Norman Rockwell, Arthur Rackham, Dr. Seuss, Roald Dahl and Jim Henson, all of whom inspired him and became major creative influences. With the support of family and teachers, Tony was able to cultivate his natural artistic talents. In college, he honed these talents at the Florida School of the Arts and later at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, where he earned a degree in Graphic Design in 1992.

After college, Tony began a freelance illustration career, working for TSR's Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game. He continued to illustrate within the gaming field for most of the 1990s, working on games such as Planescape, Changeling and the trading card phenomenon, Magic the Gathering.

After seven years of successful work as a fantasy artist, Tony entered a new field: that of creating children's picture books. With the publication in 2000 of JIMMY ZANGWOW'S OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD MOON PIE ADVENTURE, Tony fulfilled a childhood dream of writing and illustrating his own book. Critics loved the book; this was followed the next year by TED, which also received high praise, including the 2002 Zena Sutherland Award. Tony has also illustrated the ALIEN & POSSUM series by Tony Johnston, RIBBITING TALES, and the star-studded ONCE UPON A FAIRY TALE, in which all proceeds benefit Steven Spielberg's Starbright Foundation. However, it is his spooky picture book of Mary Howitt's classic poem "The Spider and the Fly" that brought him much fame and accolades. His fantastic vision garnered him the 2003 Caldecott Honor Medal and the moniker of New York Times bestselling author/illustrator.

Continuing with his passion for fantasy, Tony has lent his vision to an array of noted authors' works including J.R.R.Tolkien, Anne McCaffrey, Greg Bear, and Peter Beagle.

Tony currently lives in Amherst, Massachusetts.

Holly Black was born in November 1971 in a decrepit Victorian house in New Jersey. Her mother, a painter and doll-maker, fed her books on ghosts and faeries that formed much of her later views on the world. She also developed a fear of the dark. Nonetheless, Holly spent a happy childhood cooking up imaginary witches' brews with her younger sister, Heidi, and taking care of her pet rats.

Adolescence brought Dungeons & Dragons, punk rock, boys, and an unhealthy habit of reading books until 3 a.m. During this period, Holly wrote a lot of poetry, as well as a play and a novel titled KNIGHTS OF THE SILVER SUN. She also met Theo Black, a painter who was attending private school. They moved to Philadelphia together to attend college.

After graduating, Holly got a job in New York while working at night on an independent gaming magazine, d8. It was through d8 magazine that she met fellow writer Steve Berman and illustrator Tony DiTerlizzi. It was also during this time that she began the suburban fantasy novel, TITHE: A Modern Faery Tale.

Today Holly lives in West Long Branch, New Jersey with Theo, who she married in 1999. She is an avid collector of rare folklore volumes, spooky dolls and outrageous hats.
