The Spiderwick Chronicles leave the old-fashioned
charm of New England far behind and head south for some
fiendish faerie fun in the hot Florida sun. Eleven-year-
old Nicholas Vargas only thinks his life has been
turned upside down after his developer father remarries
and moves his new wife and daughter into the soon-to-be
completed Mangrove Hollow.
But an "expedition" to
a nearby lake turns up a little nixie with a giant
problem - the huge, lumbering, fire-breathing variety -
and it's up to Nick; his stepsister, Laurie; and his big
brother, Julian (plus a familiar face from the original
Spiderwick Chronicles) to figure out the best way
to stop a host of rampaging giants before all of Florida
goes up in smoke.
