Jared Grace: Why can’t I see you?
Thimbletack: You don’t see us, now you do, but only if we want you to.


Why do sometimes personal effects go missing in your own home? Have you been awaken in the middle of the night by some strange noise…? though you know you are alone in your room?

Creatures that go bump in the night. Fairies that make you go in circles in the forest… “Spiderwick Chronicles” is the creation of Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi, is about moving into the run-down Spiderwick Estate with their mother, twin brothers Jared and Simon Grace, along with their sister Mallory, as they find themselves pulled into an alternate world full of faeries and other creatures!

“You like the sea, Captain?”

“Yes; I love it! The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides. The sea is only the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence. It is nothing but love and emotion; it is the ‘Living Infinite,’ as one of your poets has said. In fact, Professor, Nature manifests herself in it by her three kingdoms–mineral, vegetable, and animal. The sea is the vast reservoir of Nature. The globe began with sea, so to speak; and who knows if it will not end with it? In it is supreme tranquillity. The sea does not belong to despots. Upon its surface men can still exercise unjust laws, fight, tear one another to pieces, and be carried away with terrestrial horrors. But at thirty feet below its level, their reign ceases, their influence is quenched, and their power disappears. Ah! sir, live–live in the bosom of the waters! There only is independence! There I recognise no masters! There I am free!”–Ch. 10

Fascinating! Excuse me for such long prologue but I can’t seem to help myself feeling a tad nostalgic. I just finished watching the 2008 movie adaptation of “Journey To The Center of the Earth” starring Brendan Fraser. I recommend the movie to anyone who fansies adventures, the unknown.
