Do you know a pixie from a sprite? Get the facts on how to care for and raise a happy and healthy sprite with this book.

Authors: Tony DiTerlizzi & Holly Black

DiTerlizzi and Black bring the International Sprite League to life with another gorgeously illustrated book in the Spiderwick Chronicles. These books are full of fantastic stories about weird creatures and magic in the world around you and this one is for people who want to raise a pet sprite. Is it any good? Here’s our book review.

Sprite-ology 101

This slim hardcover book is filled from cover-to-cover with illustrations of different kinds of sprites as well as info on their behavior and moods. It lets you know which ones make good pets and which ones will sneak off with your little brother while you’re asleep! (This is a bad thing, no matter how annoying he is.) It also gives general info on keeping sprites, including how to look for goblins, and get an invite to the International Sprite League where you can meet other sprite collectors.

Magic and Fun

The most amazing thing about this book is the artwork, it’s absolutely fantastic. Tony DiTerlizzi draws everything and he’s an incredible artist. The book is also fun to read and full of funny facts.


Some Sprites Bite!

As cool as this book is, it’s incredibly short! At less than 50 pages long you can read it in just a few hours and, unless you join the online International Sprite League.


The Bottom Line

This is a fantastic read with incredible artwork. It’s also part of a great series of books called the Spiderwick Chronicles. And, finally, the International Sprite League is a fun club with videos, pictures, games and more.

    I just began 'Let the Right One In' by John Ajvide Lindqvist. This is just morose and an unrelentingly disturbing book, but I appreciate the more artful/aware creation of interpretive fiction. I cannot say the same for most escape literature. However, IMHO, it doesnt really matter what you're reading... just so long as you can enjoy the books you read :)
