Bruised and battered, Jared, Simon and Mallory return home
to find their house completely ransacked. The evil Mulgarath
has made off with their mother and Spiderwick's Guide. With
only the help of Thimbletack, Hogsqueal and Byron, the children
must defeat Mulgarath and his goblin army - but first they
have to rescue Arthur Spiderwick from Lorengorm and the elves...
Wrath of Mulgarath is
the final adventure in the Spiderwick Chronicles series.
Although, in all honesty it's not necessary that you are up
to speed on what has gone before.
Hamill, who sadly is still being credited as "Star
Wars' Luke Skywalker" (and even sadder is the fact
that "Luke Skywalker" appears in bigger print than
"Mark Hamill" on the front of this CD), reads this
audio book with a lot of thought. Instead of simply reading
the words and adding slightly different voices for his character,
he actually goes the full hog and gives us some great vocal
interpretations of how he feels the characters sound.
we are left with is a Frank Oz inspired collection of voices
(like a cross between Yoda, Fozzie Bear and Hoggle from Labyrinth)
for Thimbletack and Hogsquel. These seriously help to add
to the atmosphere and keep children from losing interest.
story starts with an introduction by Holly Black, one of the
writers, that explains how this story came about. If you are
a fan of the books, then this audio book will make a welcome
addition to your collection.
release will please fans of the series.
