Book Review #101
The Nixie's Song by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black
Rating: three stars (out of four)

Nick and Laurie are somewhat thrown together when their parents remarry.  Nick is annoyed at having to share his life with his new stepsister, Laurie.  But when they stumble upon a very interesting creature in the forest they must work together to save their home.  Along the way they meet a few characters readers might already know and love...

This was a interesting story, I liked the added twist of having the real world collide with the fantasy, that was nice humorous antidote.  The fact that the girl, Laurie in the story had read a book written by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black was pretty comical.  And that Nick (the other main character) didn't believe in faeries and made fun of her for believing.  Of course, I thoroughly enjoyed all of the illustrations, props to Tony DiTerlizzi.  I'd recommend this book, especially for fans of the Spiderwick Chronicles.
