The Seeing Stone (The Spiderwick Chronicles #2) by Holly Black & Tony DiTerlizzi


Another excellent story. In this entry, Jared and his siblings continue to wrestle with the consequences of keeping the "Field Guide", as unwitting "bad boy" Jared must effect a rescue of his twin. He faces new enemies, makes new friends, and struggles to control the anger that has plagued him since his father left. Simon's love of animals proves both inconvenient and awesome; Mallory's skill with a blade comes in handy, too. Mark Hamill continues to impress (and I continue to long for the Gaiman drawl). I will definitely be listening to the rest of the series.
