Lions At Lunchtime - Mary Pope Osborne

As with the other Magic Tree House books, I loved this one. Lots of adventure and cool ways to learn about Africa.

I love how Annie's inclusiveness and Jack's researching skills work together in the book. In this books, Jack and Annie work on their third riddle in order to become Master Librarians. I really like this plot and think it adds new depth to the series instead of just having Jack and Annie wander around in books.

I also love how Osborne uses fan suggestions in her writing. These books really feel like they are written for the reader.

A great quick read. I can't wait to continue Jack and Annie's adventures.

Ghost Town At Sundown - Mary Pope Osborne,Sal Murdocca

A great continuation of the series.

I am so in love with these books. A nice quick read that is very entertaining.

I love how different Jack and Annie are, but how well they compliment each other. Annie is so impulsive and intuitive while Jack wants to plan and research before acting. They work so well together.

Definitely can't wait to continue this series. A perfect fit for young readers who want to learn while having an epic adventure.

Midnight On The Moon - Sal Murdocca,Mary Pope Osborne

One of the great things about this series is that even though this is the eighth book, it is still as fun to read as the first ones.

a fun, educational adventure. I absolutely adore this series.

I also liked how Annie and Jack's differences are celebrated especially in this book. Annie is a doer and Jack is a planner. They are themselves and try to show the other how to be more like them, but never force a change. I love that Annie can be adventurous, impulsive, and free-spirited and it is not seen as a bad thing. She is such an awesome female character for a children's series.

A great continuation of the series.

The Knight at Dawn - Mary Pope Osborne,Sal Murdocca

I absolutely loved the Magic Tree House books when I was younger. As I read them again as an adult, I find that I love them just as much.

This is such a quick read. The plot is fast-paced and I enjoyed reading about Jack and Annie's adventures. I love how different Jack and Annie's personalities are and how they work together.

The writing is very simple and easy to understand. It's great for young readers. A perfect mix of education and adventure.

Monday with a Mad Genius - Mary Pope Osborne,Sal Murdocca

This is a book I read with my son. It also happens to fit well for my Booklikes-oply book. We started it two nights ago  and finished it tonight.

 

In this Jack and Annie are on a Merlin Mission. They are on a quest to "find happiness." This time they travel back and end up meeting Leonardo da Vinci. I live how Pope spins a great tale for kids while a accurately depicting the time period and history of thd content involving the subject matter.

 

My kid really likes this series, we have a large collection of these, just missing the few most recent books. I love that he likes these, I do to and don't get too bored while reading. I am so glad he has surpassed the "see spot run" level.

 

Just under 150 pages

 

$20 + $2= $22
