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.

Format: Paperback
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

Format: Paperback
One of my daughters and I have been working our way through the series. We started with the first book. We'll take turns reading a page. My daughter likes to keep reading. She doesn't want to stop. These books are well written for young children learning to read. They have plots appropriate for young children.

In "Mummies in the Morning" the heroes, Jack and Annie, travel back to the time of pyramids. They have an adventure where they help the ghost of a dead princess. Like all the books in the series, Jack uses a book to help them out of problems. (I wonder if the author is trying to send the message to children that books have answers to problems.)

Like the other Magic Tree house books, this book moves along fairly quickly, interesting things happen, and children learn a bit about ancient Egypt.

If you have young children, this is a good book to read to them, or read with them.

Format: Paperback
I really liked this book a lot and I think you should read it. It's about two kids who travel to Egypt and you learn a lot about pyramids and mummies. Pyramids are called Houses of the Dead and mummies are buried inside them. When a royal person in Egypt died they would become a mummy.
In the time travel book they tell how mummies are made by drying the body out with salt. Then the brain is taken out and the body is rubbed with oil to keep the skin wet. I thought this part was kind of gross. Then the body is wrapped tight in white bandages. Once they are done wrapping the body the mummy is placed in a coffin called a sarcophagus.
I think the book is really interesting.

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.

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
