By Carol Sizemore on September 10, 2005
Format: Hardcover
"Carnival at Candlelight" by Mary Pope Osborne was a delight to read. I generally don't like the fantasy genre but I absolutely love the "Magic Tree House" series. One of the things that I love about this series of books is the author's ability to blend factual knowledge with adventure and excitement. As a teacher I appreciate this ability because I believe that students will learn a lot of facts from these books plus they will be enjoying a grand adventure too.

"Carnival at Candlelight" is the fifth book in a group of Magic Tree House books called the "Merlin Missions." Jack and Annie (the main characters) have a fantasy adventure in real places in real times. In this book they travel to the city of Venice, Italy. There they discover the mystery and magic of Venice.

This book is filled with factual informations such as, "Instead of roads, Venice has waterways called canals. People glide along the canals in shallow boats called gondolas."

Not only is this book filled with adventure and factual knowledge but it also has great illustrations. The illustrations in this book make the story come alive. The illustrations really give you an idea of how Jack and Annie feel during key moments in the story.

This is a great book for second graders as a read-aloud. Third graders could read it by themselves.

A Kid's Review on March 19, 2005
Format: Hardcover
If you like adventures then you should read this fantastic book. The characters in this story are Jack, Annie, Kathleen and Teddy. This story takes place in Venice, Italy. The plot of the story is that Jack and Annie go to Venice, Italy to save the grand lady of the lagoon by doing many things. For example: "When the water beneath the moon rises, visit the grand lady of the lagoon. To find out where you need to go seek out a painter named Tiepolo." This story is funny and cool because it also has a book of magic spells. This book would be for children from 7-10 years old who love magic.

My six year old is completely addicted to this series...LOVES!! Luckily I have recently located them at the library so I will no longer have to agonize every time I buy one over how much I could be saving by buying the entire set.

Given to my grand daughter for her birthday. She is 5 and starting to sound out words. Although beyond her reading skills now, she loves to be read to, and at the same time will learn about history at the same time. My son and daughter in law says she has really started to enjoy these type of books

I started buying these books last year for my 7 year old daughter who has to write book reports every month for school. I could not get her to read without tears. I bought these and she loves them and reads them without fuss. I like that as she grows older, the books are getting longer to match her age.

A Kid's Review on April 12, 2005
Format: Hardcover
I loved this Magic Treehouse book; Venice, Italy is such a cool place. I learned quite a bit, except I do know the fact that Venice was flooded in the end, but in the book, Jack and Annie save the city from the seawaters. I wish there could have been something after the story, that told you what REALLY happened to Venice, because a young child may not know that true fact.

Buy this book...and this whole series (including the Research Guides)!

Other Recomended Books: Cam Jansen, Animal Ark, A to Z Mysteries, and Puppy Patrol.

The Magic Tree House books are a MUST READ collection for all children. Unlike many other series for young readers, the Magic Tree House should be read in chronological order to best appreciate Jack and Annie's travels through time as they go on various missions; which are typically completed in four parts. Parents and educators will enjoy going along for the ride as much as their students! My daughter is a teenager now but she still gets excited when she sees a new tree house adventure has come out.
