Mary Pope Osborne has been the favorite in my house since 1994, and will always be. My children have grown up with her books and have accredited them to their lifelong love of reading. This latest book is another masterpiece of hers!

I asked my daughter to bring books home from school so we can read together. She brought home "Hurry Up, Houdini! I read it and now I wait for her to read the book. Then we talk about it. I felt like I was in Coney Island on the amusement rides. It was like I was a little kid paying a few pennies for a hot dog and coke.
The reader was transformed back to the early 1900's. Along with meeting Harry Houdini, we met his wife Bess. They were a lovely couple and much in love. It would of been exciting meeting Harry and Bess but Mary made the couple come alive. This is the next best thing. I won't reveal the lesson that was a take away from the story but I will say it was a great lesson. Again I'm looking forward to my daughter reading this book and the conversation that will follow.

My seven year old girl finished this quickly after receiving and didn't have much commentary on it. She said it was just okay compared to some of the other Magic Tree House books she has read. I think these are often dependent on the reader's interest in the time period or subject covered. Some have more sweeping plot lines than others. I think this one just wasn't very interesting to her. She did, however, enjoy the companion book "Magic Tricks from the Tree House."
