Jack and Annie go lots of places, in lots of different times, helping others in their time, in the present and in the past. For example, in another book, in the same series (Magic Tree House Series) I read a book about Jack and Annie with George Washington! That was a long time ago!
Afternoon on the Amazon is an exciting book about Jack and Annie who try to help Morgan le Fay by finding four special things. (Everything they find starts with "M".) In the tree house, every time, they climb up the ladder, look for their trusty friend, Peanut the mouse, and point to a picture in a book while wishing to go there. The tree house starts to spin, spin, and spin faster until they appear in a tree in the place they wish to go. In the rain forest, Jack and Annie have trouble with the following animals: a mother cheetah, a crocodile, a monkey, an army of ants, piranhas and a snake. But in the end, Jack and Annie find out that the animals were just being themselves, with the monkey just trying to be helpful.
My favorite part of the book is when Jack is trying to stop their boat, and he accidentally snatched a snake. It really shakes up the story. Jack and Annie try to push the boat fast and duck their heads. They safely escaped, scared to death!
This is a very exciting book.Read more ›
Again 4 fun books finding JAck and Annie traveling to amazing places! Again all four books tied together with a main plot!
WHat things do I love most about MTH?
I love that the books are pretty much kept light and airly, not dragged down with too much adversity or darkness.
Passing my passion for reading and getting "lost" within a series and characters to my son!! FOr the first time he wants to go out and buy books because of what he knows he will enjoy reading in them. Not because he just knows he likes to be read too! He thinks about what books are about now and what he likes to "read". It is refreashing as a parent not to be picking out of the same stockpile of overread favorites.
He constantly WANTS to know what books are next. Where are "we" going next with Jack and Annie!! While some adults may cringe at the simplicity of the characters or plots. I have had to stop reading more then once to wait for a giggle outburst to stop. He gets their humor even if I am groaning.
I love all of the books.
