From the Hardcover edition.

From AudioFile

Mary Pope Osborne recounts her latest Jack and Annie adventure. This time the duo is off to New Orleans to convince the young Louis Armstrong to share his talent with the world. As Jack and Annie experience early-twentieth-century New Orleans, Osborne intertwines details of daily life during the period with the story of the early years of the "King of Jazz." Osborne narrates at a slow but purposeful pace. She makes clear that the setting is as much a part of the story as the characters and the action. Her authentic voice speaks directly to listeners and brings her child-friendly characters to life. A.R. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

Format: Hardcover
Jack and Annie go to New Orleans to meet Louis Armstrong. He is busy and can't hang out with them, so they tag along with him while he's working. I like the part when Jack and Annie follow Dipper (Louis' nickname) on the road. Jack and Annie have no shoes on so when they walk, they say "Ow!" This book was great because it has food in it, and Jack and Annie and Dipper eat gumbo and doughnuts. Like when they go in the River Cafe and they meet rude waiters there. This was a very interesting book. I would give it about 4 stars.

I have to say the series just gets better and better with every book Mary Pope Osbourne writes! Don't be afraid to jump around in the series to get kids hooked! We've read more than 30 books in the Magic Tree House series and my six year old picked up Ghosts after dinner, asked to get up from bed to finish one more chapter and then finished it after breakfast! A real page turner. Glad we got it in hard cover so it will last our favorite books tour of families! Thanks again Mary!

I know some would say haw many times can an author take us on a journey with similar characters. I say Mary Pope Osbourne can. I am always surprised to see the story is fresh. I read them with my kids and because I do not want to recommend a book without reading it first.

Reviewed by SJA:
I chose this score because because this book was a very interesting book because it had a very good details. In this book they go into a black Smith shop and a ghost pirate ghosts jumps out from the ceiling and scars every one. The pictures are very interesting and detailed. But I did not like that the pictures were in black and white. I think that you will like this book.
