7 of 7 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on February 26, 2001
Format: Paperback
I like this book because it is an adventure book. I believe it is a good book for kids that like adventure. The book is about two kids named Jack and Annie. They go on a trip to the amazon rain forest. When they get to the tree house they find a mouse. The mouse helps them through the rain forest. So they find a canoe on the river side and get in it. When they get down the river a monkey starts throwing red fruits at them. After it stops doing that piranhas started to eat the boat. Then after that Jack grabs a snake. So after that they back on the river side. When they get on the side, a army of ants come after them. When they get away from the army of ants they can not find the tree house , so they put the mouse on the ground and it finds the tree house. But the jaguar finds them and starts running after them. Now you need to read the book to see if they find what they are looking for.

I like books by Mary Pope Osborne but I think this is probably one of best books she ever wrote. I think that because it is filled with adventure. My favorite character in this book would be Morgan Le Fay or Annie. I recomend it for people who like adventure.

The book was exciting and fun to read [I read it over lunch at Tatnuck Booksellers].
Jack and Annie travel to lots of cool places but this was the best because of all of the bugs. Jack and Annie are very lucky to have found the magic tree house.
This is the tenth Magic Tree House book I have read and I can hardly wait to read the next one.

This is a teriffic Magic Tree House book about the Amazon. It had a lot of scary parts, such as the army ants and the vampire bats. This also had some really interesting and exemplary information on the Amazon. I definitely think that any Magic Tree House fan shouldn't miss this one. Happy reading!!!

Format: Paperback
These tiny Magic Tree House books

Promote imagination

Reading's better for your kids

Than games on a PlayStation

A tree house filled with many books

That's like a time machine

To travel to another place

Just wish, and choose a scene

This book takes on the Amazon

Upon the mighty river

Snakes and ants and crocodiles

May make your backbone shiver

They have to find a special thing

To take back to Frog Creek

A furry friend helps them to find

The object that they seek

Through the eyes of these young kids

The reader soon discovers

Learning can be lots of fun

Just open those book covers!

I read this book for summer reading and it was one of my favorites. I love the Magic Tree House series, and I have read every one of them. In this book Morgan Le Fay was turned into a mouse by the wicked Merlin. Jack and Annie had to get four M words to rescue her. In the Amazon they got a mangoe.
