Nick and Laurie have a giant problem and it’s a lot bigger than they originally thought. When Taloa sent them off to find her sisters, they discovered a single fire breathing giant, but as it turns out, that one giant is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
When the twins Jared and Simon move in with their sister Mallory in the old, winding house of her aunt, they soon have the feeling that they are not alone here. They want to get to the bottom of the mystery, but the little tribe of goblins, trolls, fairies, and elves are doing everything they can to prevent that …
The magic beings have noticed that Arthur Spiderwick’s handbook has reappeared and because it has power over all of them Giving creatures, dark figures want to take it upon themselves. Fortunately, Hauskobold Thimbletack stands by his siblings.
Fantastic children’s entertainment at its finest.
