Synopsis

The adventures that started it all! Newly bound together, the first four books of the fan-favorite chapter-book series are the perfect introduction to the New York Times bestselling Magic Tree House series. Parents, teachers, and librarians hail the series as a tool to promote reading, as even the most reluctant readers want to know where the Magic Tree House will take the brother-and-sister team next.

The story begins with Dinosaurs Before Dark, when Jack and Annie discover a mysterious tree house filled with books and a trip back to the time of the dinosaurs follows. In The Knight at Dawn, Jack and Annie are in the Great Hall of a castle; a feast is under way, but they aren't exactly welcome guests. When the tree house whisks them back to ancient Egypt in Mummies in the Morning, Jack and Annie must help a long-dead queen solve a puzzle. And in Pirates Past Noon, Jack and Annie find a secret map that leads to buried treasure and ruthless pirates! Mary Pope Osborne brings together just the right combination of history, magic, and fast-paced adventure to satisfy kids, parents, teachers, and librarians all over the world with her New York Times bestselling series.

The formula that all of the books follow may seem repetitive to parents, but kids find these books fascinating and comforting at once, because they know Jack and Annie are going to get home to Frog Creek.
