A throwback to the Ancient Egyptian civilization is unveiled in this classic series for children. The Magic Tree House series is amazing in its ability to expose children to historical events, and retain interest with adventure. The contrast between Jack's logic and Annie's impulse makes for fun times with just the right amount of history and setting. I've always tried imagining what it must have been like to live in Egypt in the times of Pharaohs and pyramids. Embark on a journey, once again, with our favourite brother/sister pair!

So very earnest. So very full of simple stereotypes. So very well plotted and characterized that I can see why this has remained the most popular beginning chapter book series since I started in the business almost fifteen years ago.

Young siblings Jack and Annie find a mysterious box that they use to travel through time and space, often aided by they box's powerful, magical owner. That's right, in its most basic form the series is Doctor Who for 6-8 year old readers (which has been popular enough to become one of the longest running TV shows of all time). Older Jack (8) is the cautious, studious one who wants to learn before leaping; Annie (7) is the optimistic one who rushes right into everything. It's a perfect combination to establish a balance of adventure and education, with just a touch of tension between them. The tree house's owner provides the mystery.

(This review is for the audio of books 1-8, listened to in immediate succession.)

Another early chapter book from the Magic Tree house series. This instalment finds Jack and Annie in Ancient Egypt helping a long dead queen find the book of the dead so she can pass through the underworld to the afterlife. Along the way they find another clue about the mysterious "M".

Early readers will love to read this or have it read to them. Good for the collection of teachers and libraries that have young readers.
