Something about this series of books appeals enough to 2nd grade readers that they will read them on their own -- and ask for more. I read this book to make sure it was suitable for my son and I found it remarkably lacking in substance -- it's pretty much only the setting that changes from book to book -- I'm grateful I don't have to read this series aloud! However, my 7-year-old son reads a Tree House book in one or two sittings and his reading skills are greatly improved. He doesn't balk when I ask him to read aloud to his 3-year-old brother. Now the 3-year-old is crazy for them, too, and carries the books around and quotes passages from them. All I can say is: I wish I had stumbled on this Osborne chick's gold mine first.

If you like ninjas, then you'll want to read Night of the Ninjas.
If you like mice, you'll like this book, because Peanut is a mouse.
The story keeps you guessing. becaue the mouse acts like a human.
I liked Night of the Ninjas, because ninjas fight like martial
artists.

I liked the mouse and I liked that Jack and Annie turned into Ninjas. This book has a lot of action in it, and I learned that the Samauri were ancient Japan fighters

I think this book was so cool! I would really want to go with Jack and Annie on their journey. My eyes poped when I saw that mighty samurai and when the ninja master said: "use nature, be nature,and follow nature."

If you like ninjas then you'll want to read night of the ninjas.

If you are a fraidy cat you might like Jack and if you like to imagine,then you will like Annie. If you like mice, then you will like Peanut in the story.
The story keeps you guessing because the mouse acts like a human.
I liked Night of the Ninjas, because it's exciting and you will like it, too.

ISBN 0679863710 - Books in series for kids aren't new - Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, the Bobbsey Twins.. right on through to the Babysitters Club and Goosebumps - they've been out there for generations. This series, however, does seem to have a slightly younger target audience than most and that, in my opinion, is a very good thing. The younger they're hooked, the harder it is to give up the habit, and reading is a habit you want to encourage.

Jack and Annie are headed home from the library, wondering where Morgan and the Magic Tree House are and when she and it might return. Annie runs off into the forest and sees that it has returned! The only question is - where's Morgan? A note is found, along with a mouse, and the kids have the tree house whisk them away to Japan, sometime in the 14th-17th centuries, where they are meet ninjas and flee from samurai warriors and gather the first of four items they will need to rescue their friend. They return home in time for dinner, but they still haven't found Morgan!

I have a few problems with the book - for one, the kids go to Japan and meet some ninjas who speak fluent English. Or the kids unknowingly speak fluent Japanese. Either way, they're able to communicate without trouble. Jack makes small notes as he goes, like "ninjas were warriors in old Japan", but there's little effort made to delve too deeply into anything informative. Not that every book in the world needs to be educational, but it feels very much like a missed opportunity. Last is the obvious fact that book #5 comes nowhere near being complete, as Morgan is still missing.

This is the best one I have read of the series so far. I liked it so much that I've been telling everybody else in class to read the same book. I also like the pictures in all the books. It is very good artwork. The book made we want to travel to Asia and see historic places.

The Magic Tree House series is a great idea that could be executed much better. I agree with some of the other reviewers comments regarding limited and in some instances dubious information on their subject matter. However, I am giving this book four stars because my five year old son loves it. I have found it a struggle to finds books that he will sit down and read with me and the fact that this book grasps his attention is a great credit to it. In fact, now that I have bought the first eight books in the series, his ten year old sisters are reading and enjoying them, also. These books serve the purpose of introducing a topic (usually historical) and sparking a child's that can then be pursued in other books.

The original Magic School Bus series (by Joanna Cole - not the ones taken from the TV show) is a much better series that incorporates a lot of science with a fun story line.
