This is #32 in mary Pope Osbornes wonderfully imaginative Magic Tree House series. In this one, during Christmas Time Jack and Annie are summoned through the tree house by old friends Teddy and Kathleen. They emerge in a land that is frozen by magic by the Ice Wizard. But the wizard is no villian. He actually wanted Jack and Annie's help in finding Merlin and Morgan Le Fay who have disappeared. Thus begins a typical classic fantasy quest for our heroes.
Most adults can get through one of these in a couple of hours or so and kids in a couple of days. They are well-written, exciting and fun books for kids or adults looking for a small diversion. They really take me back to the days of reading C.S. Lewis and others when I was a kid. Enjoyable for all!
I felt excited to get a copy of "Winter of the Ice Wizard" by Mary Pope Osborn. This is one of the great stories of "The Magic Tree House" series. These books are about two little kids named Jack and Annie. They travel in a magic tree house.
In this story Jack and Annie have to find the Ice Wizard's eye. The wizard gives them a riddle and a rope with knots in it to help them on their quest. When someone unties a knot the sleigh goes faster. Two big white wolves chase our heros in the snow.
I really liked this book because the story had a lot of mystery and danger. I liked the author's characters, except the Norn sisters. They were too nice! If you want to find out what happens with the wolves at the end, rush to buy this book!
NB: this is the first time my son has ever read a book cover-to-cover!!!!
A very happy mother!
