Quite different than their early adventures this one helps to teach kids about gravity. Sal Murdocha once again provides marvelous illustrations for the story as it reachs it's climax. Good but different storyline.
Of greatest importance, my grandkids love these books and read them like crazy. It's nice to walk into a bedroom when one's asleep and see one of the volumes, with a bookmark in it, on the bedside table.
So, while I wouldn't recommend a steady diet of them, (the formula can get a bit threadbare), these books certainly seem to have a place in a new reader's library.
First of all, when Jack and Annie are inside the moon base, there is normal gravity. Then, when they let the air pressure out so they can go on a moon walk, the gravity gets weaker! GRAVITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AIR PRESSURE!
Secondly, while Jack and Annie are walking around on the moon's surface, an asteroid falls down from the sky and lands in front of them, blocking their way out of a valley.
An asteroid that size would have made a huge crater. We are talking megaton explosion. Jack and Annie should have been space dust.
I know, I know, what about my willing suspension of disbelief? These are books about a magic tree house where mice understand human speech and time travel is possible. But why couldn't they visit a more realistic version of the moon? Osborne could have looked up a few simple scientific facts, couldn't she?
I hate to think of little kids growing up thinking that gravity is caused by air pressure.

I did not like Midnight on the Moon because it didn't explain that much detail about the moon. It wasn't really that funny.Published 2 months ago by Edwinna Thomas
My granddaughter loves this series but I was shocked at how short these books are. I will find another series to buy for her.I don't think these are worth $5 each.Published 4 months ago by Kathleen Igo
