Got Sprites?

Many would have you believe that sprites (or "fairies" as they're often called) are sweet and pretty and ultimately peaceful creatures. But don't let the carefree nature of these dazzling beguilers fool you. Because while they do make for awesome pets (or, if you prefer, companions), these are not creatures to be handled lightly. So forget everything you know -- or think you know -- about sprites, and listen to the experts from the International Sprite League as they, with the assistance of the creative team that brought you the bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles, provide a resource that will prove to be as essential for the novice sprite keeper as a strong cage and eyes in the back of his or her head.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomeness This is the last of the books between the Spriderwick Chronicles and the Beyond Spiderwick trilogy. It is a guide for Care and Showing of Sprites, endorsed by the International Sprite League. There is an illustration of each species and a symbol key for habitat, locomotion, disposition and additional traits. The sections are: The Magnificent Sprite Anatomy of a Sprite Selecting your Sprite Obtaining your Sprite What's Not a Sprite Sexing your Sprite (not what you think) Housing Your Sprite Proper Nutrition for Your Growing Sprite Sprite Accessories Grooming Your Sprite Illnesses of Sprites The Many Moods of Your Sprites Keeping Multiple Sprites Reintroducing Your Sprite Into the Wild Showing Your Sprite International Sprite League Mission Statement The original website for the International Sprite League website appears to be abandoned so the Games, downloads and videos referenced at the back of the book are no longer available. But there is a website with some similar content. For fans of the Spiderwick books this one will give some more insight and adventure if you're the young and young at heart.
