Love, love, love~ So amazing! This is one of the best! Anne and Jack went to the time where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was six years old and was to perform for the royal family of Austria. We met Nannerl, Mozart's older sister and Mozart's nickname is Wolfy! So CUTE~ I can imagine young Wolfy! XD They went back to that time to convince Wolfy to spread the happiness to the world, in his case, to continue composing music and aspire many musicians around the world. Flute is one of my favorite musical ...more
This is the second book I've read from this series, and again I've rated it 4 stars mostly because I am pleasantly surprised (maybe I ought not to be anymore) by how deftly Ms. Osborne weaves this tale into something digestible by her intended audience. I'm glad that my 7-year-old is hooked on this series and got me into it, too. (Though obviously, I am not reading the novels in order - neither is my daughter!)

Though I realized before Jack and Annie did - from the title and the nickname "Wolfie"
OK, Mozart may actually make Tad Lincoln look well behaved (see the review of Magic Tree House #47: Abe Lincoln At Last!). Reading this over I kept thinking that Schonbrun Palace sounds a whole lot like Versailles. Maybe all the crowned heads of Europe had the same architects?

Once again, Jack and Annie show the importance of Doing Your Research Before You Go for time-travellers. Much of the adventure time is taken up by Jack being embarrased by his poor manners in front of the Empress of Austria

Jack and Anne are sent on another Happiness Mission for Merlin. They travel to Austria in the mid 1700's. They go to a very fancy party for the queen. When they go to the Queen, Jack accidently makes a fool of himself, and one of the kids there calls him Jack the Clown. He follows Jack and Anne around until he gets mad at his dad. He runs to the backyard and lets out all the animals that live there. Jack and Anne then pull out their Magic Flute and make the animals go back to their cages. The ki ...more
I would give this book 10,000 stars if I could. I liked it because it was a fantasy story, which I like, and about music. I like that Annie and Jack didn't know who Wolfie was or what year they were in; it was a mystery. I didn't know who Wolfie was either! But I'm learning how to play the piano too, so this was interesting to me. I couldn't believe that this bratty, meanie kid was the famous Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart! I really liked the part where Annie was making up a song and she called Jack a ...more
They go back to the time that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was 6 years old and was to perform for the royal family of Austria. But he doesn't, he wants to play and then goes to the zoo and opens all the cages so that the wild animals end up chasing him. Jack and Annie have to play their magic flute (good for only one use) and sing a song to send all the animals back to their homes. He remembers that he loves music and is able to perform a wonderful musical number for the royals.
It was really good. Mozart put all the animals out of the zoo and so he it was really funny. Then Jack and Annie were trying to help the whole world in four missions. This was the first one of the four missions.
I read Moonlight on the Magic Flute. It was written by Mary Pope Osborne. It has 105 pages. The main characters are Jack and Annie. It is in the 1800's and is in a huge palace. The plot was helping the famous artist and the famous artist played music. The theme was to help the famous artist. I thought that it was good. At the beginning they were invited to a party. Then they had to bow to the imperial mother. When jack messed up he got laughed at by a kid and at the ending when they helped the k ...more

I had never read any of the books in this popular time-travel series for readers bridging into chapter books, and I thought I should. It's fine - I can see why kids like it, and just maybe it prompts some kids to learn more about the time/person visited. Still I didn't love that it's not entirely true to the time period visited. I understand why it isn't - I think author and publisher want to make the books accessible and easy to digest. But I just didn't think Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart would real ...more
I like the instrument flute. My favorite instrument is the Drums. Whats yours???
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
My kids don't know who Mozart is or about The Magic Flute, the opera (ages 3 & 5). I guessed they whole book correctly in chapter 2. But still, the followed quite a bit of the story and liked it.

One of my favorite things about the MTH series is expanding their vocabulary but I was surprised how that was nearly lost by listening to it instead of reading. Annie wore a hoopskirt but I couldn't show them what that looks like so I think it was lost on them. Next time I need to get the book with
My favorite part was when Jack was playing the flute, Annie sang a beautiful song that led a cheetah, bear and all the zoo animals...even a lizard and a snake. Then they were dancing and I never ever seen dancing animals before. My favorite part was Wolfie, when he heard the music... there was a queen there. He gave a tune and the funniest part was when Jack bowed to the Majesty and the Majesty said raise your head and his wig, flute fell out. He was wondering "Does this Majesty make me do this ...more
I've been wanting to read one of the wildly popular Magic Tree House books for long time, and I'm glad I chose this one. The plot and writing weren't outstanding, but I'm giving it 4 stars because I thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself in this part of Mozart's life. Though my prior knowledge of his life eliminated many of the plot's surprises for me, I was excited to use what I learned in music school to enrich my reading of the story. I even learned something new! (On p. 43, Nannerl lists the na ...more

Book Review
I am not old enough to know what the 18th century was like but Mary Pope Osborne made it so the book The Magic Tree House : #41 Moonlight on the Magic Flute could be easily pictured and easy to imagine actually being there in the 18th century Australia. This book is an easier read but is also one that keeps you interested through out the book. In the book the characters Jack and Annie have to go on another adventure "To seek out a brilliant arti

Haven't read one we didn't love yet!
Especially the audio versions for car rides, quiet time and so on.

As a homeschooler, I also find the learning paths from these stories amazing. A gentle mix of imagination and facts create a fascinating and memorable journey into times, places and getting to know historical figures completely fun.
I love this series of books, but more importantly, my son loves them. We have both learned so much from them. We are able to draw comparisons to movies and other books about the same subjects. In this case, I showed my son the "Papageno, Papagena" segment(or vice versa)from Kenneth Branagh's version of The Magical Flute.
Jack and Annie are summoned to the Tree House by their enchanter friends, Teddy and Kathleen. The happiness missions are to continue--only now the children are to bring happiness to millions of people by finding a great artist and helping to inspire them.

Jack and Annie are given an invitation to a ball in Austria in 1762. There they meet the Imperial Empress Maria Therese and young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, though they do not realize who he is until much later.

Annie and Jack are transported to Austria in this Magic Tree House story. They attempt to save a young boy in trouble in eighteenth century Austria. A delightful read for young readers. It also includes period stickers.

I really enjoyed learning about Austria. I would recommend this book to people who are interested in learning about a new place while also reading a good adventure story at the same time.

This is the best Jack and Annie yet. Well, almost. There are other great ones. Moonlight and Magic Flute is about Mozart! And Osborne portrays him true to form, a royal brat. Typical of her great writing and brevity with words, she paints a picture of who he is through the eyes of Jack and Annie, but this is much more Jack's story so far. It shows him really feeling in this book, which I've not noticed a lot in this series.

Most every one of the Treehouse series are great for beginning readers. T

Another really good MTH book. Jack and Annie are sent on a mission to find a great artist. They try and try to find the artist, but this little kid keeps following them and driving them nuts! They finally give up and declare the mission a failure. But that's just the moment when they find out who little Wolfie really is! And of course, there's a magic flute in there as well :)

My kids loved this one. They thought little tag-along Wolfie was a riot. At the end of the book they asked me to find "T
My rating of this book is based on how much my children (ages 6 and 9) enjoyed the book. This series would not appeal to me if I wasn't sharing it with my children. My children love the books. They enjoyed this one thoroughly. The magic in it was beautiful. The characters are fun. Jack and Annie especially appeal to my children who are also older brother and younger sister. Most of the books, this one included also include some real facts. This can lead to studying new or different topics. This ...more
