One word. Favorite. This is one of my favorites from the MTH series! So awesome and the wand of Dianthus! Ah!
Jack and Annie are about to begin another adventure. This time, Merlin wants them to prove they can use their magic wisely. He is going to send them to real times and real places in history. They always get help from two young sorcerers Teddy and Kathleen. Jack and Annie love climbing into their tree house and getting their next mission. But they must wait for the magical tree house to appear. They hope it’s somewhere fun! Annie rushes in and tells Jack the tree house is back! Jack grabs his ba ...more
I think this book is pretty good. The author Mary Pope Osborne added a lot of small details which I thought was really nice to read. The first time I read this book (3 years ago) I thought is was really adventurous. I would recommend this book to year 3 or 4.
This is a fantastic series. My daughter LOVES these. It combines adventure with real events in history. The series is about a brother and sister team - 8 year old Annie and 9 year old Jack - that discover a magic treehouse that transports them to different places around the globe during different times in history where they have adventures while trying to solve a mystery or find a clue for the owner of the treehouse. They are a lot of fun, and teach some history at the same time.

I really like this book. It was nice to read a book that I liked as a kid. In this book Jack and
Annie are sent on a mission to find a unicorn that is disguised in public. The unicorn is in New York city during the Great Depression. Their mission is made complicated by a blizzard that comes into New York. I would recommend this book to chilren and adults.
After I read this book I went on to Google and looked up the A train and saw the different lines and that it had stops by Central Park. Then I looked up the Cloisters and saw a picture of the captured unicorn.
It was a great book! The cover of the book is cool too! Oh, I also learned what a blue moon means :)

FINALLY! JACK and ANNIE! Have come BACK! To NEW YORK CITY! (This is me in my Dwayne The Rock Johnson mode.) Yep, our little time travelers are off to the Big Apple to rescue a Unicorn--yes, you read right, a UNICORN!--from a museum once owned by THE Nelson D. Rockefeller, and the little horny one (heh heh) is threatened with imminent death from two teen wizards with a score to settle with our heroes! (How the hell did these evil villains know that Jack and Annie are from Frog Creek? The book don ...more

This is a Magic Tree House Merlin Mission book that takes place mostly in New York City. It is filled with wonderful historical facts about the Central Park area of New York City and other places. Children who are NOT from NYC will learn about some famous landmarks, museums, historical subways and a little geography of NYC. They will also learn a bit about John D Rockefeller, while reading a suspenseful story filled with clues hidden an rhymes and they will see that good triumphs over evil. Sinc ...more

OK- this book is TOTALLY not for me. This was, obviously, one for the kids. We finished Narnia and are waiting on Percy Jackson to come from the library, so I read this little thing that my mom either bought for the boys or accidentally packed in our stuff... I'm not sure how we came by this book actually.

Turns out, it's #36 in a series. Yikes.

It's an early-chapter book, made for a six or seven or eight year old to be reading on their own, lightly illustrated, and pretty simple and straightfor

Blizzard of the blue moon
Marry Pope Osborn
Realistic Fiction

In edition 26, of the Magic Tree House series, Jack and Annie have to face the cold winter winds of New York in the Great Depression. Merlin gave Jack and Annie a special mission to save a unicorn under a mystical spell. This will not be easy because the Great Depression is in their presence and people are crowding the streets. Jack and Annie have almost no money so it is hard to get t
Aidan picked this out as his free book from Borders (for reading 10 books). Aidan was pretty absorbed by it. He liked the characters and he really liked trying to guess what would be happening next. It was easy reading for Aidan, and the vocabulary was not above him at all. As an adult reader, I found it OK. While reading this, I *felt* like I was reading a book for children, whereas when I read Dahl, or White, I feel like I am reading true literature. There's just no beauty to the language in t ...more

I liked it because they had no clue what to do but they still found out merlin and morganas clues and there was other people trying to get to the unicorn and there name was Grinda and Balor they did get the unicorn but jack and anie got it before they would had done something bad.I recomend that people read it because it was an adventure and I felt like I was in the book so i'll recomend it to people.
I read this story once, a long time ago. And I could not stop thinking about it, of figure out what bok it was. I thought it had been a book called "The Last Unicorn" so i looked and looked. Nothing! The image of the tapestry in the story: a unicorn chained to a fance, kept popping up, both in my head and other places: on my friend's pillow, for example. Then one day, about a week ago, my little brother grabbed all the Magic Tree house books he could find out of the library, and checked them out ...more

I chose this book because as I have mentioned in my other review of the series, I have enjoyed readin Mary Pop Osborne since I was 9 years old. The plot of this book is that Jack and Annie end up in NYC and have to rescue Merlin's unicorn, trapped under a spell under a tapestry at a museum. My favorite quote would have to be, "The wind started to blow. The tree house started to spin. It spun faster and faster. Then everything was still," because it has a lot of imagery and creates a strong visua ...more

I really liked it. It was so funny. They thought two people were Teddy and Kathleen, but they really weren't. They turned them into ducks cause they were trying to get a unicorn, but they were trying to get a unicorn. Jack thought Annie was a treasure at on point, so he did a rhyme. It was so funny.

Mary Pope Osborn has created a world with the Magic Tree House series that children can come back to again and again and experience a new adventure with each story. In Blizzard of the Blue Moon Jack and Annie are sent on another quest by Merlin to free a imprisoned unicorn somewhere in New York City in a blizzard during the Great Depression. The cover of the book is very shiny, which will help draw a child’s attention to it. There are a few black and white pictures in the book ever few pages to ...more
Jack and Annie lost eachother in central park! Jack and Annie rode a unicorn! Jack and Annie rode a train!
Read this with my 7-year-old, and found it to be a cute little read.
I like this book because it tells you about blue moons
Exciting and eventful addition to the series.

Jack and Annie embark on their 4th mission to prove to Merlin that they can use magic wisely. They are sent to rescue a unicorn who is hidden by a magic spell. He is actually woven into a tapestry in The Cloisters in New York City, so the children go to 1938 NY in the midst of The Great Depression and a blizzard as well.

The children not only have to free the unicorn but they do battle with 2 enchanters who are apprentices of a dark wizard.

Awesome and I loved it!

- Read to my son at bedtime.
it was funny.
Jack and his little sister Annie are two regular kids from Frog Creek, Pennsylvania... until they discover a mysterious tree house full of all sorts of books. From that point on their lives will never be the same again! They soon go on amazing adventures (plus children are learning bits of history and most don't realize it) as they travel through time with the help of the magic tree house. The chapters are short with pictures every few pages, making these books perfect for the beginning reader. ...more
Okay before you start wondering why I randomly picked up a Magic Tree House book, allow me to explain. I'm volunteering for this organization called Reading to Kids and I'm assigned to the 4th graders. This book was the selection for me to read at storytime and I wanted to read it before going to volunteer. But in all honesty, I've heard so much about the Magic Tree House series that I've always been curious. Its a bit of a paint by numbers formula kids book, but I can see why its popular.

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is an exciting book in the Magic Tree House series. A final Merlin Mission to test Annie and Jack's ability to use magic wisely takes them to Great Depression-era New York City to find a magical unicorn. Convinced that they need to find him at the zoo, the kids have a dangerous adventure along the way and encounter some helpful and some dangerous characters.

Our girls have really enjoyed this series and we can often read one of these books in just two or three readings.
