Do you love the Magic Tree House book series? Well I do. Perfect Time for Pandas by Mary Pope Osborne is about two kids named Jack and Annie with their friend Teddy accidently cast a spell on Penny (a penguin) and turned him into stone. Jack and Annie are trying to find the last thing to turn Penny back into a penguin. Perfect Time for Pandas is the best book ever!

One reason that this book is the best book ever is because it has a riddle that Jack and Annie have to solve. The riddle is, it is a food that is as tough as wood and the color of sand. It is backed with love, and given to those who lost their land.

Another reason this book is the best book ever is because it can teach you about pandas which are an endangered species. If you're interested in endangered animals and want to learn more you can get the research guide. You can get way more information from it.

I recommend this book to first through fourth graders. So if you like fiction stories and also want to learn some facts, you should get Perfect Time for Pandas by Mary Pope Osborne.

My 7 yr old loves these books and she enjoyed this one, too. She read the whole series within the last year and it's been her favorite of all the series she's read so far. I like how they combine history with modern day and Magic. My daughter has learned a ton about history (and she doesn't even realize it!).

My son and I read this while on vacation in Washington DC this summer and he really enjoyed the story. The bonus: We went to the National Zoo and saw the pandas so my son made a self to real world connection. We are going to purchase the Fact Finder book now.

We've been reading this for a few weeks now. Neither of my kids seems to be really into it which is crazy since my little one is obsessed with pandas. It's an ok story but nothing that sucks you in and makes you want to keep reading.

Format: Hardcover
Time-traveling brother-and-sister team Jack and Annie of Frog Creek, PA, are ready for their next adventure. They have to find a certain kind of food—the fourth and final thing needed to save Merlin’s beloved penguin, Penny, who was accidentally turned to stone by their apprentice magician friend Teddy. It is “A healthy food, grainy and good, baked with love, tough as wood, round in shape, the color of sand, given to those who have lost their land.” Sounds easy enough.

The magic tree house whisks the two off to the village of Wolong in the mountains of southeast China, close to a world-famous panda reserve. At first, they visit all kinds of restaurants to find the food, but nothing fits the description. Then Annie really wants to see the panda reserve. However, they don’t know it, but they’ve arrived on the day of the historic Great Sichuan Earthquake on May 12, 2008. How will Jack and Annie survive when the giant quake strikes? Will they be able to rescue the pandas? Can they find the food? How will they ever get back to the tree house so that they can fulfill their quest to save Penny? And can you guess what the food is?

Most middle school age children will enjoy this fast-paced adventure filled with danger and mystery. Of course, those who object to magic in children’s literature will want to avoid the book as well as the whole series. There are a couple of common euphemisms (gosh, darn), an obligatory mention of “panda poop,” and a couple of references to the pandas’ existence for three million years, but nothing really offensive. For those who can work around these things, A Perfect Time for Pandas would make a great complement to a study of China, earthquakes, and/or, of course, pandas.

A Perfect Time For Pandas was the fourth book in the latest adventure missions Jack and Annie have been sent on by Teddy and Kathleen, their magical friends from Camelot. Teddy accidentally turned Merlin the Magician's treasured pet penguin Penny into a statute. While he and Kathleen worked on reversing the spell, Jack and Annie were sent across different times and continents to find the ingredients needed for the reversal. In this book edition and Annie were sent to Southwest China on May 12th 2008, when major earthquakes devastated the region.

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.

We are a fan of the MTH series. We love all their books, and this one is no different. I love the way they throw true facts into each book, that I feel my kids are learning real facts while using their imagination.
