What a WondLaful Tour
The Battle for WondLa tour is over, and though I am exhausted from travel, I also feel honored, blessed and inspired.

Since I am celebrating the 10-year anniversary of The Spiderwick Chronicles this week, today’s Friday Fan Art is appropriately themed. It comes all the way from a small town in Brazil where a young artist turned to the story of Jared, Simon and Mallory for inspiration.
