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.
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!
