After his family move into a long-disappeared relative’s country house, young Jared Grace (Highmore) discovers a field guide to fantastical creatures. Opening the book, however, alerts its presence to a very real, very nasty ogre who wants it for himself.
A late entry in a crowded field, Spiderwick works hard to set itself apart from the competition, and almost entirely succeeds - no mean feat these days.
