Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 1-4. In this sequel to Dinosaurs before Dark (1992) and The Knight at Dawn (1993), Jack and Annie return to the mysterious, book-filled tree house that transports them through time and space. For this adventure, they select a story on Ancient Egypt and travel back to the pyramid of Queen Hutepi, who needs help finding her copy of the Book of the Dead for a journey through the underworld. This story, like most series books, is heavy on suspense and light on character development, but is distinguished by the intriguing details of Ancient Egyptian life and burial customs. Even the overused theme of reading allowing one to travel anywhere works well here. Some foreshadowing (clues about the mysterious owner of the tree house, who leaves souvenirs marked with the letter M) and a hint about the pair's next destination add to the appeal. Illustrated with frequent black-and-white drawings, this will be welcomed by beginning readers making the transition to chapter books.

We've loved every other one of the Magic Tree House series, but this one (although interesting to me, the parent) was a bit too scary for my six year old son. We only read half way through it and that was it for him (the mummies were too much for him -- yet he didn't mind the ghost in the Wild West book). So parents, be prepared for this one if your child is young or a bit sensitive.

I really want to like this series. My 6 year old daughter loves the stories, and they offer wonderful opportunities to explore various periods in history. Jack and Annie have adventures, solve problems, meet historical figures, and use their imaginations. What's not to like?

Well, it seems nitpicky, but I have a huge problem with the editing of the early books in this series. (The later ones are better, but we just re-read Mummies in the Morning and it's all coming back to me!) The fragmented sentences are out of control. There are so many that I stopped counting! I'm sure that it won't matter to young readers, but I can't understand why we can't expose them to grammatically correct English while they're learning to read.

I also agree with other reviews that fault the thin character development and level of factual content. I know that these books are for beginning readers, but I think there are missed opportunities to add real knowledge. Again, I think the later books in the series are much better, and the research guides are a great companion to the stories.

Overall, I would say that reading the Magic Tree House series has been a worthwhile investment of our time. It just bothers me from time to time when I think about how much better it could have been done.

Mary Pope Osborne is one o our favorite authors! This is an awesome adventure where Annie & Jack travel back in time to ancient Egypt to help a mummy find her way to the afterlife. I highly suggest the educational companion book to this one if you are reading it alone other than for an educational unit. I love how this book gave my children a look into pyramids, hieroglyphics, the burial process in ancient Egypt. I would have liked to use the companion book with this, however, we didn't as we were doing a ancient Egypt unit already. We read this book for fun and that is what these books are all about fun plus learning.
I loved the black cat in this adventure that lead Jack and Annie all around the inside of the pyramid! Great book for ages 7 and up!

My 7-year-old granddaughter reads at about a 3rd grade level. She loves this series. She always looks forward to reading more about Jack & Annie's adventures. I'll definitely encourage her to stick with this series, though there were a couple of parts in this particular book that were frightening for her (specifically: the ghost, the very descriptive look of the rotting mummy, and the kids being trapped in the dark). Skip this one if your young one is frightened by such things. At the very least, read it first to determine whether it's appropriate for your child. A few of the words were difficult for her to puzzle out on her own, too (sarcophagus, scepter, for example), but she is only 7 after all.

Not a fan of this one! We are studying Egypt and thought this would be great but instead of talking about Mummies or Egypt it focuses on hocus Pocus.All about a book of the dead, ghost, mummies coming to life and more that my kiddos and I stopped reading and threw it away!

I bought this for my 8 year old grandson. I asked him how many stars to rate the book and he said 5 stars. He read it in a couple of days and when he was done he asked for the #4 book. I have no problem buying books as reading is a fun and educational experience.

Great adventure story for young readers! I am very fond of the fact that readers can learn more factual information about topics introduced in each book, i.e., mummies, pyramids, Egypt. Authors creates interest and provides links to more information.

My five year old absolutely loves these stories. Jack and Annie enter their magic tree House and venture through time they cover geographic areas around the world with excitement while teaching children about places and marks of history such as: Ancient Greece, pyramids, the amaZon, space travel and much more. I even learn from these books!
