When they first arrive at their treehouse, they find a little dog is inside. He is standing near a piece of paper - a letter from Morgan le Fay, the magical librarian who owns the treehouse. The note tells them that the dog is under a spell and they must collect four items in order to break the spell. (books 18, 19 & 20 are the other books where Jack and Annie seek out the remaining items).
Ms. Osborne then proceeds to explain the tragic situation aboard the Titanic in a way that left my five year old with a decent historical idea about what happened. The book is not graphic and the tragedy is not overtly stated. In fact, my five year old was not certain if people died when it sank. It left the door open for me to tell my daughter as much or as little as I thought she could handle. I felt that Ms. Osborne deftly handled a very complicated and difficult part of history. I would strongly recommend this series for elementary school children.
I read "Tonight On The Titanic" with my middle daughter. We took turns, each reading a page. I enjoyed the book. Jack and Annie are asked to get a gift from a ship lost at sea, the gift will help break a magic spell. Jack and Annie end up on the Titanic. They try to encourage people to hurry and get off the Titanic. They have some success and get a gift from one of the people they save. It was fun to read.
Personally I'd probably give this four stars, but because my daughters like the Magic Tree House books so much, and they are target audience, it deserves a five. If you have young children this is a good book to read to them, or read with them.
Jack and Annie have to help people from the past. When you read this book you feel like you're in their journey on the Titanic. I even thought they were going to get stuck on a sinking ship. It's amazing how a book can frighten me. I can't wait to read the other books in this series!
