The Spiderwick Chronicles, Books 1-5
by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black (Simon & Schuster, 2003-2004)
audiobooks read by Mark Hamill (Random House Audio)
A middle-grade series about magical creatures and sibling relationships. Each individual book is quite slight but when read together they build into something of a page-turner. The audiobook editions afford an appropriate outlet for Mark Hamill’s characteristic, slightly whiny intonation of dialogue.
