THE SPINDLERS is New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver's second middle-grade novel. Like LIESL & PO, it is a standalone, and like that luminous novel, THE SPINDLERS is also about a heroine who is braver than she ever thought, and who must undertake an audacious quest for a beloved family member. The Spindlers are spider-like beings that steal children's souls; they have stolen the soul of Liza's younger brother Patrick. Armed with little more than her wits and an unusual guide, Liza descends underground and faces otherworldly obstacles-from tree-snakes to shape-shifting serpents-in order to rescue her brother. Like THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES, CORALINE, and ALICE IN WONDERLAND, THE SPINDLERS reveals a dark and fascinating world that exists within our own.
First a pack of vile, smelly goblins snatch Simon. Then a band of elves try to entrap Jared. Why is the entire faerie world so eager to get their hands on Spiderwick's Guide? And will the Grace kids be left alone, now that the Guide has mysteriously disappeared? Don't count on it. At school, someone is running around pretending to be Jared, and it's not Simon. To make matters even worse, now Mallory has disappeared and something foul in the water is killing off all the plants and animals for miles around. Clues point to the old abandoned quarry, just outside of town. Dwarves have taken over an abandoned mine there. And the faerie world's abuzz with the news that a creature with plans to rule the world has offered them a gift to join with him -- he's given them a queen...Book Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 4/6/2004Pages: 128Reading Level: Age 7 and Up
