A Giant Problem

A Giant Problem

by Tony DiTerlizzi, Holly Black Illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi

After surviving their first giant attack with the help of a singing nixie, Nick and Laurie have their work cut out for them as even more giants awaken and threaten not only their home but all of Florida, in this second installment of the bestselling Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles series.

Talk about out of the frying pan, into the fire!

I was pretty sure that my freaky stepsister and that freaky field guide of hers would ruin my life. But now it looks like they're going to ruin all of Florida, too! Okay, maybe that's not fair. Maybe all these stupid giants would be waking up anyway, but if it wasn't for her and that book, I'd be home playing video games and this would be someone else's giant problem!
