From the Hardcover edition.

From AudioFile

Mary Pope Osborne recounts her latest Jack and Annie adventure. This time the duo is off to New Orleans to convince the young Louis Armstrong to share his talent with the world. As Jack and Annie experience early-twentieth-century New Orleans, Osborne intertwines details of daily life during the period with the story of the early years of the "King of Jazz." Osborne narrates at a slow but purposeful pace. She makes clear that the setting is as much a part of the story as the characters and the action. Her authentic voice speaks directly to listeners and brings her child-friendly characters to life. A.R. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

A Kid's Review on December 5, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Jack and Annie go to New Orleans to meet Louis Armstrong. He is busy and can't hang out with them, so they tag along with him while he's working. I like the part when Jack and Annie follow Dipper (Louis' nickname) on the road. Jack and Annie have no shoes on so when they walk, they say "Ow!" This book was great because it has food in it, and Jack and Annie and Dipper eat gumbo and doughnuts. Like when they go in the River Cafe and they meet rude waiters there. This was a very interesting book. I would give it about 4 stars.

We read to our boys every night before bed but our oldest son who is 8 has started to want to read after bed so we started getting the Kindle addition books for him. This was a great book and a great read, he loved it and after a weekend night - the next morning he told me that he read it from end to end and couldn't put it down. I think that this is an overused statement sometime but coming from my son who has only been reading story books for a little while now it was a true testament.

I have a feeling that we will be getting more of these books series now for him. We bought two of them and I am sure that there will be many more. The next one that we will be dabbling in other series for him.

This book series is worth ten stars. I read these to my kindergarten class and the kids love them. The stories are well written, educational, and keep the children enthralled. In addition, the books invoke the children's imaginations and usually lead them to create their own Jack and Annie adventures.

I have to say the series just gets better and better with every book Mary Pope Osbourne writes! Don't be afraid to jump around in the series to get kids hooked! We've read more than 30 books in the Magic Tree House series and my six year old picked up Ghosts after dinner, asked to get up from bed to finish one more chapter and then finished it after breakfast! A real page turner. Glad we got it in hard cover so it will last our favorite books tour of families! Thanks again Mary!

Reviewed by SJA:
I chose this score because because this book was a very interesting book because it had a very good details. In this book they go into a black Smith shop and a ghost pirate ghosts jumps out from the ceiling and scars every one. The pictures are very interesting and detailed. But I did not like that the pictures were in black and white. I think that you will like this book.

Format: Paperback
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.
