I've been meaning to put the whole Jack and Annie ouevre into Goodreads for a while.

May absolutely loves these books. At 3 chapters a night, they tend to last for just under a week, providing a nice pause in longer collections.

My geeky/pulpy side likes recognizing all the tropes without the author following convention slavishly. I have a theory that Morgan LeFay (the magical librarian of Camelot and creator of the magic treehouse) is secretly a Time Lord and the treehouse is her TARDIS (bigger o

My 6 yr old is becoming a voracious reader and his teacher recommended this series so I picked up a few from the library. My son loves it. Magic and fun and adventure rolled into a chapter book that's easy to read, yet challenging enough that he's not bored. Many of these are educational as well, focusing on a particular point in history such as a president's reign, or a location, like Ireland in this one, which goes really well with his geography and history lessons. He's loving it, and already ...more

I really enjoy all of the Magic Tree House books. They are fairly simple in regards to style of writing but I enjoy it. I feel like I could easily read this book as a read a loud. I could see it working well if I read a couple chapters first and then tell them if they wanted to finish it they could.
At the same time it's a fairly quick read and it could be fun to read a couple chapters each day. Each chapter ends well, allowing the reader to wonder what will happen next. I read the first two cha

I really enjoy pretty much any Magic Tree House book. In my opinion Osborne does a great job of weaving information such as facts about monks, the Swiss Alps, monasteries, etc...with an adventurous story! I rely enjoy reading this book and it is really fun reading aloud as well. I read it to a small group of fourth graders and they were engaged with the story. A good or even just an alright book can be read in such a way to make it engaging for listeners. And a great book read without emotion or ...more

A cute time travel series that does not necessarily need to be read in order. There is reference to what happened in the past that sets up the present situation then Jack and Annie head to the Magic Tree House for their adventure to find clues that unwrap another mystery and solves the current problem.

At the back of the book the author provides historical information, of people and places which are used within the storyline, that gave her the idea or basis of the time traveled setting. There is

This was a nice book. And the riddle was awesome! It actually got your mind working. And I loved it when Annie and Jack lived it for an hour.

Jack and Annie must go on another Merlin Mission. Penny, the abandoned penguin which they saved on a previous mission and gave to Merlin as a present, has accidentally been turned into a stone statue by their young sorcerer friend Teddy, and they need to find four things to break the spell. They have just returned from finding the first one, an emerald rose from Mogul India. Now they must find a white and yellow flower and live its meaning for an hour. But the Magic Tree House takes them to the ...more

This book is a part of the Merlin Missions. It tells the story of Jack and Annie traveling to the Swiss Alps to retrieve the second thing to break the spell the baby penguin, Penny, is under. When an avalanche buries Jack and Annie, Monks from the St. Bernard Monastery rescue the two. “The second thing to break the spell is a white and yellow flower. Live its meaning for yourself, if only for an hour.” Jack thought about how no flower could live in these cold conditions, but he was determined to ...more

I like this book because there is a dog in it named Barry. I know there is a dog named Barry in this book because in page 1 it states, Jack and Annie have a new mission. They must find a rare flower to save one of their best friends! So when the magic tree house whisks them back in time to the Swiss Alps, they're confused. How can they find a flower buried under ice and snow? Jack thinks their mission is hopeless! When they find an ancient monastery where monks and St.Bernards live. Annie gets ...more

This story is mostly about a boy and girl name jack and Annie . They were at school, but then it had finished. They went into the frog creek woods and then went inside the magic tree house. They both found a book on the wooden floor. The picked it up, then wished that they could go there. The tree house spun and spun until it stopped. They found themselves meeting a man that had lived in a far away village. The man greeted Cohen, then made them come inside his store. He showed them a book, and A ...more

Recommends it for: children starting to read longer chapter books
We have loved the Merlin Missions stories as well as the original Magic Tree House books. We have read them all and are also reading the Research Guides (now called Fact Tracker books) as well.

We eagerly awaited the publication of this book, but for some reason we just didn't read it as fast as I thought we would. Part of the reason behind it is that we owned the book while we always have a bunch of library books that we need to read and return. I purchased it for our girls at their elementary s

By: Litzy Valdivieso I have this book a four, because to me it doesn't has a lot of details of the main idea.Another reason why i have it a four is because sense its for little children, to me it should have a lot more of magic and enthusiastic things that happen in the story.Also because it doesn't has a lot of picture .So i thought that scene its a children's book it should have more pictures and have more of creative things.Well that is my point of view.

Magic Tree House books are a win/win. My son loves Jack and Annie. He loves the adventures they go on and finds them very fun to read. I love the fact that the adventures that Jack and Annie go on are educational and teach a little about history. The Magic Tree House books make reading for my son fun and no longer a chore!

Annie and Jack turned into dogs and they could understood the other dog. The print for their words was really skinny and big. Every time Annie talked to the dog he would sneeze all the time. It was a really good book and it told me a little about the dogs. They can save people. The dog saved Annie, Jack and another soldier. The dog loves putting his nose in the snow.

I liked it. Jack worried about their mission so much except for one hour when they turned into dogs. He worried about how their going to find a white and yellow flower and how are they going to find a dog they said they would train it? And it was interesting.

I liked Dogs in the Dead of Night. They got stuck in an avalanche and then some dogs that were from the monks dogs came and rescued them. They saved the person from an avalanche too since they turned themselves into dogs too.

Dogs in the Dead of Night is an awesome book. Mary Pope Osborne's Magic Tree House series has really cool books and they teach you different stuff. This book was her latest one. Abe Lincoln at at Last is coming in December 2011. Dogs in the Dead of Night is about Jack and Annie go to a Monks church and they have to train a Saint Bernard before he has to leave to a different place away the Monks church. The Monks church is in the Alps and there are a lot of avalanches so that's why there are Sain ...more

Oct 23, 2011 Cathy rated it really liked it
Not quite as chock-full of facts as normal perhaps, but full of adorable dogs, which makes up for it. And trying to convey a love of dogs is a worthy goal in and if itself, not to mention the idea that dogs can be such important helpers and heroes to people. Rescue, assistance and therapy dogs are so important. I loved reading in the author's note that Barry was based on a real dog.

Now that my reading buddy has outgrown the series this is probably my last book, unless I happen to notice a new r

Another solid entry in the series. I know some may think it is too redundant, because this series definitely has a formula used in the books. However, if redundancy hasn't bothered you in the past, it isn't any worse in this one so you should be fine.

I do enjoy the history learned by the kids in the books. Some parts of the story and plot are a stretch (as always), but the historical aspects are very well researched. And there are good life lessons in the stories as well. A little childish for a

While Jack thinks that helping to train the dog is going to be a complete waste of time, Annie wants to help the dog. Can Jack and Annie Help train Berry and finish their mission, or will they be stuck
