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.

Human activity like too much usage of air conditioners and people who do not close refrigerator properly may cause the thinning of the precious ozone layer. The examples that I`ve listed release CFC. This CFC will mix with the nitrogen in the air and cause the ozone layer to decrease. This may cause more UV light rays to enter Earth and causes the earth temperature to increase little by little every day. As the years go by Earth will dry up one day due to the high temperature and no protection given by the ozone layer for the human race to live in this world. I'm not saying that global warming isn't a significant issue or that it doesn't need our attention, I just don't think it's going to be what kills us. It might kill a lot of everything else, but I don't think it'll kill us.    Well what will die from global warming?

I read it but with what we are doing to our planet mankind won't exist by then so that theory is right of course but we won't well mankind won't exist.
