Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-4–During another “Merlin Mission,” Jack and Annie are sent back in time to Victorian England, where Charles Dickens is suffering from writer's angst and has vowed not to pen another book. After posing as chimney sweeps in order to gain entry to his house, the two children use magic to conjure up the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future in order to convince Dickens of the value of his work and to inspire him to write A Christmas Carol. Fans of the series won't be disappointed in this tale, which nicely combines action, atmosphere, magic, and bits of humor in a stepping-stone format.Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library

My nine year old daughter's review...

'This book called me in the book store! "Come read me, come read me!". I thought that it described how the ghosts came out really well. I also thought that it was a really good way to teach a lesson to kids by telling them that they shouldn't be greedy or selfish and should help others more; they should be kind and hospitable. My favorite part was when Charles Dickens was chatting with his fans in the restaurant at the end.'

I'll just add that she read it in one sitting, so I know she enjoyed it.

Another Magic Tree House title - #44 - by Mary Pope Osborne provides a satisfying holiday title in A GHOST TALE FOR CHRISTMAS TIME. Here Jack and Annie find their next task is to help famous writer Charles Dickens, and they are taken back in time to Victorian England London where they discover Dickens doesn't really need their help. Their discovery of his hidden sadness leads to adventure, magic and ghostly encounters in this latest fine addition to the popular series.

I am an ESL teacher and my student loves these books. He gets to pick them on line and I order right in front of him. He gets so excited because they arrive within a couple of days. He is willing to read independently for practice and knows he will get immediate rewards when he finishes a book. This seller's timimg is terrific!
