I like that in every Magic Treehouse book you meet some good and some bad people. This book is not as scary as some Magic Treehouse books. There's only two scary parts. I think that the author doesn't tell you everything about the characters that Jack and Annie leave behind. It leaves a sort of happy surprise at the end.

Format: Paperback
Mary Pope Osborne has created a magical tale around her Master Librarians. Jack and Annie must travel back in time to save at least one bamboo book from the emperor's bonfire. The emperor is afraid that books are a threat to his power. During their adventure, Jack and Annie interact with characters from an ancient Chinese legend and observe history as it is happening. Jack describes many authentic Chinese artifacts and habits. These tidbits of Chinese hisory stimulate a desire to learn more about the Chinese culture. This easy-to-read tale will captivate children from ages six through twelve who wish to enjoy a good story and get a small dose of Chinese history.

Format: Paperback
It's not often that I find a book that I actually enjoy reading aloud to my children. Most books, even kids books, have long, descriptive passages or paragraph upon paragraph of exposition which are boring to listen to and tough to read aloud without me getting dried out.
However, the Magic Treehouse Books are quick reads that are easy to dramatize. Main characters Jack and Annie have distinct personalities that are fun to give voice to. Jack is the serious scientific type. With his signature "Oh, man!", he is the perfect counterpoint to younger, impetuous sister Annie. ("Hi!")
While it's not necessary to start with the first book of the series (Ms Osborne does a commendable job of filling in the back story in each book w/o slowing down the narration), I recommend starting with book one since there are elements that build in each consecutive book. (Who is the mysterious M?)
The Treehouse books also offer contemporary vocabulary (but not to the point of being ridiculous), cool settings and fun drawings.
But the best thing about these books? Even my oh, so cool ten year old will sit down and listen.

Format: Paperback
Jack keeps a notebook, carries a backpack, likes adventures, likes information, likes to study, solves riddles, and is a smart boy. Annie likes animals, imaginary things, willing to help, encourages Jack, polite, uses clues, and she's focused.

Jack and Annie have to find a dragon coin to give to Morgan. I learned how to take care of people who are poor.

I felt excited because I felt like I was the dragon of the castle. This book reminds me of Dragon King on Damage Road. I think elementary students who like to read who like the author, Mary Pope Osborne, who like fantasy and adventure books would love this book.

This book is great and you should get it. I like it because it is like going in time travel and it is very fun to read. There is an exciting part in the book when arrows are flying after the two kids named Jack and Annie.

Format: Paperback
When Jack and Annie found out that they were going to China, they went straight to the treehouse. They met Morgan there, and she told them that they had to save a library in China. The dragon king was going to burn all the books, because he didn't like them. Jack and Annie saw a huge map of the castle where the emporer lived and they used it to help them find the library. In the end, Jack and Annie saved the library and were heroes again.

I liked this book because of the Terra Cotta soldiers (we have one of these at home !), the Chinese hats that Jack and Annie wore, and the dragon kings clothes. And I think I'm a good judge of Chinese things, since I was born in China !
