The Spiderwick Chronicles is a movie based on Holly Black and Tony Diterlizzi's bestselling children's book series of the same name. The story is about three children who battle goblins and other magical creatures who are after Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide. The movie will follow the adventures of the Grace children: Simon, Mallory and Jared as they encounter many different types of faeries. The faeries themselves are left ambiguous as to be an integral and yet non-interjectional addition to the plot. It is projected for release on February 15, 2008 by Paramount Pictures. The film has been rated PG for scary creature action and violence, peril and some thematic elements. Image File history File links Gnome_globe_current_event. ...
