Summary: This book is about two kids named Jack and Annie. They were walking Frog Creek, Pennsylvania and Annie pretended to see a monster and ran off into the Frog Creek woods. She found a very tall oak tree with a tree house and a long, long ladder. She yelled to her brother Jack. Annie decided to climb the ladder, although Jack wasn’t sure it was a good idea. Annie climbed up and said there were tons of books so Jack climbed up too because he loved books.
While they were looking at the books Annie picked up a book about dinosaurs and was looking at a picture of a pterodactyl and she said she wished she could go to the time of the dinosaurs and all the tree house started to spin. It spun faster and faster. Then everything was still. Absolutely still. All of a sudden a pterodactyl flew past the window. This was the beginning of their magic treehouse adventures.
Review: I like this book because when I was in first grade my teacher read this series to my class. Everybody really liked sitting listening to her read the story. When she would finish a chapter we would always say “one more chapter, one more chapter!” Sometimes she did and sometimes she didn’t. (My teacher was really funny).
I like the Magic Tree House series because I like adventure stories. Annie is funny because she runs off all the time and Jack has to try to find her. They gets in lots of trouble but they figure out how to get out of it. But they always get back to the tree house.
