The Ironwood Tree (The Spiderwick Chronicles)

4/5 stars

The Ironwood Tree (The Spiderwick Chronicles) by Holly Black

Two thumbs up for the Spiderwick Chronicles!

Fun. Short. Beautifully illustrated. Fairies, unicorns, elves, trolls, dwarves, goblins–all your standard fantasy creatures get some spotlight.

Hits the bulls eye for being content-accessible for their target audience without talking down to them. In my experience, that’s really hard to do.

The grown up in me didn’t like they were so short, but they seem to be right in the sweet spot for my 9-year-old to read independently.

Happy Reading!
