Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-5-In this series installment, Jack and Annie are transported to the legendary kingdom, which has been put under a dismal spell by King Arthur's enemy Mordred. To bring joy and hope back to Camelot, the youngsters volunteer to journey to the Otherworld in order to bring back the Water of Memory and Imagination that will break the spell. This isn't really a Christmas story, but rather a rousing adventure tale filled with dancing fairies, white stags, and hideous beasts. Jack and Annie undertake the rigors of the quest with enthusiasm and aplomb, and if it all seems a bit too easy, fledgling fantasy readers and fans of the series shouldn't mind at all.-E. M.

From the Inside Flap

The Magic Tree House series has become a staple for inspiring kids to read. Christmas in Camelot is a very special Magic Tree House book. Here, author Mary Pope Osborne uses the literary skills for which she's known to create a longer, more in-depth story featuring the characters kids have come to love. The result is magical: a fast-paced but detailed, easy-to-read story. Jack and Annie go on a quest to save Camelot, a quest that will prove to a beleaguered King Arthur that children and imagination really can make a difference.

Mary Pope Osborne has done it again! The adventurous Jack and Annie travel in their tree house to a time where King Arthur, Queen Guinevere and the Knights of the Round Table need help in keeping the magic and spirit of Camelot alive. The author has done her research in order to create the adventure of a time long ago, yet readable for today's children. Magic and beasts arise, but good prevails due to Jack and Annie's persistance!
A good read aloud or independent read.

A great title in a long list of great, series books! As a third grade teacher, I cannot recommend these books enough! The repetition or similarity of themes, characters, and plot make it very easy for children to utilize comprehension strategies. They can easily predict what will happen, understand the characters, and thoroughly enjoy the stories! YEAH!

I'm 12, and I LOVED this book! It's not much different than the rest of the series, but Christmas in Camelot gave a different feel. In Magic Tree House books 1-28, the books are all about history and facts about the world, and Jack and Annie (the main characters) are sent on missions by the Tree House's owner: Morgana le Fay, a librarian who travels through time with the tree house to collect books for Camelot's library. In this book, Mary Pope Osborne (the author of the Magic Tree House Series) sends Jack and Annie to Camelot on Christmas day to help save the city. Now with a mix of mythical and magical tales from different countries, this book is filled with things from myths from places like Ireland, Scotland, Britian,Wales and other countries. This book, and the newest books called: Merlin Missions, help introduce kids to folklore, King Arthur and his Knights, and myths that many kids would consider boring or dumb...which they aren't!

I loved this book, and I'm excited to read more of the newest Magic Tree House books that (hopfully!) are coming soon. Thanks.

I wanted my son to enjoy reading so the media specialist at his school recommended this series. We have read every one and truly love them. My entire family gathers around whenever we read one. Mrs. Osborne truly has a gift for getting children interested in reading. She has a wonderful way of mixing fact and fantasy. This book was a wonderful journey back to Camelot.

My [...] year old son absolutely loved this series. I had to read it to him, though. When I would stop reading for bedtime he would be so excited to know what came next he would always beg for just one more chapter. We are now rereading the books (he just turned 7). As his reading skills improve, he is beginning to pick out words and phrases as I read to him

This book was on of the Merlin series and had a more magical component to it. There are Christmas references but it is definitely not a real "Christmas" story. It can be read any time of the year. The story is about a brother and sister Jack and Annie. They have a series of clues to get to quest which is given to them by the magician Merlin. You can read this book alone, but I would recommend reading some of the earlier ones in the series to get to know the characters.

This made a wonderful Christmas gift for my 5-year-old nephew who is a big fan of the Magic Tree House series. It's the perfect non-toy gift for kids that they are sure to love and get a lot of use out of! I would highly recommend this to anyone.
