Book Review #109
Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide To the Fantastical World Around You by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black
Rating: three stars (out of four)

I absolutely love Tony DiTerlizzi's illustrations, even as a teenager I find them wonderfully breathtaking and glorious.  I cannot imagine what I would have thought of them as a child, I probably would have been completely flabbergasted.  The creatures in this book are very interesting and you can't help but be sucked into this book, completely forgetting where you are, but instead, being immersed in this world, with all sorts of thoughts running around your head.  This book was inspiring, it made me want to write stories featuring the characters I had just been introduced to.  A lovely book that I'd definitely recommend.
