5.0 out of 5 stars Dophins At Daybreak (Magic Tree House Series) February 17, 2000
My name is Stephanie and I think that you should read this book. Here is why. Jack and Annie fly off in the magic tree house to an ocean. There they find a boat to go inside. Jack starts studying the boat while Annie plays on the computer. She accidentally presses a button that makes the boat drop down into the ocean and sail. Holly cow! It is a mini submarine! They run into a shark, but their new dolphin friends save the day. Join Jack and Annie in their search for the mystery item that will allow them to return home. Will they ever find it and return home? You'll have to read this book to find out. I think you'll love this book. I know that I did. Happy reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best magic tree house book. September 25, 1999
By A Customer
The magic treehouse takes them to an island and they get stuck on a sinking sub. Jack and Annie escape of course, so there can be more magic tree house books. If you like dolphins and underwater adventures,this will be your favorite too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat book about going underwater November 13, 2001
Format:School & Library Binding
"Dolphins At Daybreak" is a good Magic Tree House book about Jack and Annie exploring the ocean and meeting some dolphins. This book had a few parts that were frightening, like the hammerhead shark, but really, they weren't that frightening. My favorite part was when they were rescued by the dolphins, and it was fun when they went underwater. Also, the action is written well, and the plot is written wonderfully as well. If you want my opinion, I really, really, really, enjoyed this book, and I highly reccomend it to anyone. Happy reading!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Water Adventure March 25, 2005
By Iceman
From my 8-year-old

I reccomend the Magic Tree House #9 - "Dolphins at Daybreak" if you like sea animals. In this book Jack and Annie have adventures with dolphins, an octopus, and a hammerhead shark. The story has some exciting and dangerous scenes. In the end they solve the riddle, and get back to Frog Creek in their tree house, safe and sound. I like suspense and I like this book!

Cool (and wet)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dolphins at Daybreak January 29, 2006
A Kid's Review
Dolphins at Daybreak is a story about two kids that go own an

adventure. The story takes place in a magic tree house with two kids named Jack and Annie.

The story starts out with Annie wanting Jack to go to the magic tree house. There they

meet Morgan Le Fay and she is the master librarian for the tree house and gives Jack and Annie

a folded piece of paper with a riddle in it and an ocean guide

book. Next Jack and Annie are in Hawaii and jump into a

mini-sub. Their sub came upon an octopus and the octopus

put his arms around the mini-sub. Then the octopus let go of

the mini-sub because sharks started to circle the mini-sub.

The mini-sub started to have problems and Jack and Annie took

it to the surface of the ocean. Whth the sharks still close

by they swim for their lives. Just as they start to tire, two

dolphins pick them up and take them to the island and reef.

Back at the reef, Annie finds an oyster on the beach. Jack

said that this oyster could be the answer to the riddle from

Morgan LeFay. Then Jack and Annie went back to the tree house

and found Morgan's scroll. It said oyster on the scroll and was

the answer to the riddle. The story ends with Jack and Annie

going to back to their house after they solved the riddle.

Peter T.

I love it because you feel like you are really there and it's extremely fascinating. You never want to stop reading it because you don't want the adventure to end.
