Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 1-4. In this sequel to Dinosaurs before Dark (1992) and The Knight at Dawn (1993), Jack and Annie return to the mysterious, book-filled tree house that transports them through time and space. For this adventure, they select a story on Ancient Egypt and travel back to the pyramid of Queen Hutepi, who needs help finding her copy of the Book of the Dead for a journey through the underworld. This story, like most series books, is heavy on suspense and light on character development, but is distinguished by the intriguing details of Ancient Egyptian life and burial customs. Even the overused theme of reading allowing one to travel anywhere works well here. Some foreshadowing (clues about the mysterious owner of the tree house, who leaves souvenirs marked with the letter M) and a hint about the pair's next destination add to the appeal. Illustrated with frequent black-and-white drawings, this will be welcomed by beginning readers making the transition to chapter books. Kay Weisman --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

I really want to like this series. My 6 year old daughter loves the stories, and they offer wonderful opportunities to explore various periods in history. Jack and Annie have adventures, solve problems, meet historical figures, and use their imaginations. What's not to like?

Well, it seems nitpicky, but I have a huge problem with the editing of the early books in this series. (The later ones are better, but we just re-read Mummies in the Morning and it's all coming back to me!) The fragmented sentences are out of control. There are so many that I stopped counting! I'm sure that it won't matter to young readers, but I can't understand why we can't expose them to grammatically correct English while they're learning to read.

I also agree with other reviews that fault the thin character development and level of factual content. I know that these books are for beginning readers, but I think there are missed opportunities to add real knowledge. Again, I think the later books in the series are much better, and the research guides are a great companion to the stories.

Overall, I would say that reading the Magic Tree House series has been a worthwhile investment of our time. It just bothers me from time to time when I think about how much better it could have been done.

We've loved every other one of the Magic Tree House series, but this one (although interesting to me, the parent) was a bit too scary for my six year old son. We only read half way through it and that was it for him (the mummies were too much for him -- yet he didn't mind the ghost in the Wild West book). So parents, be prepared for this one if your child is young or a bit sensitive.

I enjoyed reading this book with my 10 yr. old grandson. The two main characters, Annie & Jack, prove that children can have fun using their imagination by reading a book and traveling through time using their imagination. The book provided useful information regarding Mummies in ancient Egyptian times and certainly kept my 10 yr. old's attention. From beginning to end, we found it to be an exciting and great little story that didn't take too long to read. We will certainly read more of the Magic Tree House books. We recommend it highly!!

When I first got the book, I thought it was going to be boring because it was about mummies. I had never read about mummies before. When I read the book, it was exciting. It was fun when Jack and Annie went on their adventure. I would love to read another Magic Treehouse book

The book is about two kids who love to read.They read books about Egypt. They end up going to Egypt and they see a ghost queen. They go on an adventure in the creepy pyramid. I like this book because it was interesting. I like when the ghost queen met them and we could see through her. I think that the author is trying to tell us there are really mummies.

A Kid's Review on May 8, 2002
Format: Library Binding
I think the story was great. I did not know anything about mummies. I thought it was boring because there were no mummies in chapter one, just a tree house, Jack and Annie. Then, It got better. The tree house began to spin back in time. When they woke up, they were in Egypt. They saw an Egyptian parade into the pyramid

We loved the first 2 books - they are great for beginning readers and the stories have funny moments. The third book was a bit too descriptive. With words like: flesh, air lady, dusty bandages etc it's a little too much for 6 year olds. I hope the rest of the series doesn't follow the pattern.

I bought this for my 8 year old grandson. I asked him how many stars to rate the book and he said 5 stars. He read it in a couple of days and when he was done he asked for the #4 book. I have no problem buying books as reading is a fun and educational experience.
