Spiderwick Chronicles -- A new children's movie

I haven't really read the books but Spiderwick Chronicles have had nice reviews about it. From what I've gathered, Spiderwick Chronicles is one of those fantasy children stories - which was probably released after the Harry Potter hype. I mean, I've only seen the books some time after several Harry Potter books have been out and became popular.

So what is Spiderwick Chronicles about?

Jared Grace moved from New York with his twin brother Simon, sister Mallory and their mother to some secluded old house owned by their great-great-uncle Arthur Spiderwick. Strange things start to happen as soon as they move in, like things disappearing or accidents suddenly happening, and they all blame Jared for everything. The three children decide to investigate these strange occurrences that is happening every day and they find out about the secret of the Spiderwick house and the different creatures that live there.

I think that this might be a better movie than
A Series of Unfortunate Events. The story seems to target children more with it's fantastic plot and all. It might be a good watch, so if you have kids, or is a kid-at-heart, try to catch the Spiderwick Chronicles on February 15, 2008.
