Title: The Nixie's Song
Series:: Beyond The Spiderwick Chronicles
Author(s):: Holly Black
Genre:: Children's Book
Summary: Two children find a mythical Nixie in a pond near their house. The nixie wants to find her sisters and needs help.
My Thoughts: A little creepy at times because the main characters couldn't really trust any of the magical creatures or the people involved. Humorous at other times. I especially liked the breaking of the fourth wall. I am not sure if I liked it better than the orginal Spiderwick Chronicles or about the same. In all, it was a good short story and I will be reading the rest of the new series.
