Magic Tree House #4, Pirates past noon, is the best. I love the cover. I like Jack and Annie. They are sort of funny. I read the whole book in one day. I am five years old and my name is Nate.

Pirates Past Noon
Mary Pope Osborne

Would you ever want to travel to the time of the pirates?

This is a story about two kids Annie and Jack. They have found a magic tree house and travel to the time of the pirates. The pirates show up and capture them. The pirates make them tell were the buried treasure is. They tell them they don't know were it is, but then Jack & Annie find the treasure and tell them were it is. The pirates found it too and leave to get some shovels and in that time something happens to Annie and Jack, but you'll have to read the book to find out what happens to the two of them.
I thought this was a great book think it is for people who like adventure books.
I recommend this book to kids 6-10 years old and I think kids would love it if they like adventure.

My first grade grandson could read like lightning but could'nt remember anything he read, never understood what the story was trying to tell him and generally became very apprehensive when asked to read anything. He had classic performance anxiety. Having taught in Special Ed., I had found the Magic Treehouse books helped put the most anxious reader, especially those who faced language based reading difficulties, right at ease. As with them, my grandson almost instantly became a part of the story. His reading became more fluid and he would sparkle when asked to relate what he had read. Thank you Mary Pope Osborne!

Format: Paperback
In this 4th installment of the Magic Tree House series, Jack and Annie find themselves on a deserted island, quickly confronted by three not so nice pirates - Pinky, Stinky and Cap'n Bones. The pirates are in search of Captain Kidd's buried treasure and they are sure that Jack and Annie know where it is. With the pirates desperate to find the treasure and a storm on its way, how will the kids get out of this one and back home safely?
The end of Pirates Past Noon holds a delightful surprise and is sure to lead you quickly in search of book #5! This is a great series that my 5 year old daughter and I love. It is perfect for kids who are outgrowing the younger picture books and getting ready for chapter books. These books have a picture every few pages, so that helps in the transition of reading/listening stages, I think. They are also a great way to introduce your child to different regions and to learn a bit about history.

This book is my favorite in the series so far. My favorite part is when Jack got caught. I finished the book in a day and a half since it was so good!

I just loved this book! It was a book with tremendous action, cool characters, some cool magic, and a great plot! What made the book so good was that there were really funny pirates. Also, the parrot is neat, and what happens to the parrot is so neat! I highly reccomend this to any Magic Tree House fan.

I like when the parrot comes back to the tree house. It is a great book. And I like when they find out where the "eye" of the whale is. I read this book 2 hours. I couldn't put it down! It draws you in.

11 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Caballero del febo on September 15, 2005
Format: Paperback
Kids in the 5-7 range will probably love this series with its dependable repetition of formulas that my kids loved to say out with me when we got to the best part of the book: "The wind blew harder ... The treehouse started to spin ... faster and faster ... then everything was still. Absolutely still." The loyalty and friendship which bond brother Jack and sister Annie are also a refreshing break from sibling squabbles.

On the other hand, it's discouraging to watch the heroes of these books visit far-off times and places and learn virtually nothing about the places they go to, because the author is so ignorant about science, history and the English language (gravity varies depending on whether you're in a building or not; "thou" is a plural pronoun; etc.). If you want your kids to learn anything from their readings, you'll have to delve a little deeper into the mass of children's literature than this trivial series.

In this episode, Jack and Annie meet some colorful pirates.
