I haven't been disappointed with any story in this series. They are educational adventure stories. My 5 year old has learned a lot from each story. The basic story line is about a brother and sister who find a magic tree house and fly to amazing places and times. They may not always agree but they get along. Jack uses the reference books to learn about the place they traveled to and Annie relies on her intuitions. Together they make a great team. Even the concept of "using your instincts" and "check the available information" are important for kids to hear verbalized.
Often they have a mission and they need to solve a riddle or figure something out to accomplish their goal. In this story they are looking for a special kind of "ship". They start out looking for a boat but in the end they learn the ship they are looking for is friendship. Along the way they actually found friendship with two Hawaiian children they had met. They learned about surfing, Hawaiian hula dancing, tidal waves. They try primitive hawaiian foods and observe the family working to make fabric from tree bark and food from plants.
We listen to these stories every time we are in the car. They are interesting enough to keep us grown ups interested even when we hear the story several times. When we get a new set we listen to it and when we finish it we start the series all over again. They are great fun. Jack and Annie are realistic kids that we have gotten to know and like.

As much as the books are fun fictional stories, the subject matter is factual and educational without children seeing it as such. Each story book does have an accompanying fact book although I can't comment on these as we haven't bought them.
They did run an English version of the books (which are American based) for the first few although eventually they went back to a common series. We're on book 22 now and I believe there's more than 40.
My 4 year old is too young to read them herself, although now she's learning to read at school she does read some of the words. They're probably better suited to 6+ as actual reading material. If like us though you're looking for a good bedtime series to get your teeth into then I can't recommend them enough.
