Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You, also known simply as Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide, the Field Guide, or the Guide, is the book written by Arthur Spiderwick about the Invisible World. The Faerie people were worried about the Field Guide, as it contained information on all their weaknesses, which, if published, could mean the extinction of the already endangered Fey. Therefore, the Elves wanted to destroy the book, but when Arthur didn't give them the Guide, they imprisoned him in their kingdom for almost 80 years, but he didn't age a day.

When the Grace family moved into the Spiderwick Mansion, the three children soon discovered the book and were forced to fight to prevent the evil Ogre Mulgarath and his Goblin army from obtaining the book, which they would use to rule the world.

When the Guide was saved and Mulgarath died, the children contacted the authors Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi and convinced them to publish the book at Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers.
