From AudioFile

Merlin the Magician is in trouble, and Jack and Annie must help him by traveling to ancient Japan to discover the four secrets of happiness. Along the way, they eat sushi, watch sumo wrestlers, meet a great poet, are pursued by samurai warriors, and generally entertain listeners with vivid details of Japans past. Author Pope Osborne reads the story, creating distinct and recognizable voices for her main characters. Jacks is boyish and enthusiastic while Annies is high-pitched and girlish. Pope Osborne narrates at a pace that allows her verbal details--including especially beautiful images of Japan--to unfold in listeners imaginations. Children will welcome this pleasing entry in an enjoyable series.

Format: Hardcover
The Magic Tree House Servies, in my opinion, are a good thing. Not only do we get a rather well told story that kids can relate to, we also get a book that actually teachers the kids something. In this work, Jack and Annie of Frog Creek, take off for ancient Japen (1600s) to find the secret of happiness. This books gives us a wonderful account of ancient Japan, it's culture, traditional folk tales and is loaded with historical facts. The book is very well written as the author is a natural story teller and I was quite impressed with the illustrations. This is a work the kids seem to enjoy, which is a pretty good indorsement for a young persons book. Just a note: I have seen some critical comments (very, very few) in the review section of other books in this series, as to to the use of "majic" as a theme. Folks, if you don't like your children to read books such as this, simply tell them no. If your child has trouble distinguishing between fiction, fantasy and reality, perhaps you should read the books with your child and point out the defferences....it would probably do both of you some good. Overall, recommend this work and the others in the series quite highly.

A Kid's Review on May 27, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book for kids. I love it, so much that I bring it with me everywhere I go. I have read this, and like it. It takes place In old Japan. Jack and Annie meet a poet named Basho, and spend the day with him. I have learned about Basho in school and most of the things the book told about him I knew. I was thrilled reading about the Samuarai, and when the fire came around I was so excited I almost screamed! Dragon of the Red Dawn is a good book to read.

Who says that children's books have to be all about fighting and lots of action? With "Dragon of the Red Dawn" Mary Pope Osborne showed once more that the escape into a world of imagination can be fun, captivating and keep children occupied for more than an hour. Listening to this audio book makes the kids travel into yet another time and country.

A wonderful book, read by the author, and another beautiful adventure with Jack and Annie.

A Kid's Review on September 1, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This book I loved when I was reading the pages, and how it gives you a little passport in the back of the book like it was actually a real passport. The books description of the garden when they first get out of the tree house in Japan just gives me a picture of what it looks like in real life. This book had a bit of humor and that adds coolness to the book. Buy this book!!!!!!!! I'm 11.

Another classic Magic Treehouse installment, this time in imperial Japan. The haiku and deatils of life in Edo made this book informative for the little ones (4,6) and a little more interesting for the parents reading it. The fact that it involves a dragon was a big plus for both of them. The rating is only relative to other magic treehouse books, and not to the vast choice of better children's literature out there. All that said, I am sure it would make a good read for 7-8 year olds delving into books on their own for the first time.

This wonderful adventure with a Japanese poet was added to our collection just in time. An article ran about him in National Geographic, and my eldest son would not have had a clue who he was if he had not read this book. I think it is delightful how Mary Pope Osborne uses these texts to expose children to places, ideas and situations that might not otherwise be accessible to them. Definitely pick up this title, and if you haven't already done so, buy the rest as well!
