I have always enjoyed reading this series of chapter books by Mary Pope Osborne and I think that she did a wonderful job piecing this story together. The main message of this story is to always have hope in every situation. I think that this story was so intriguing because it had actual facts within the book. Jack and Annie travel together to find more about Abraham Lincoln. I think that if the author did not include the actual facts, that the story would not flow as precisely and smoothly as it did. Another factor that grabbed my attention was the dialogue of the book. It caught my attention because it had some humor within the words. For example, when Jack is hesitant on going with Annie, he grits through his teeth and mutters that he is coming! I think that this adds more dimension to the characters and keeps the reader intrigued in the character's feelings and emotions. ( )

I never really read the Magic Tree House series when I was growing up but I have mixed feelings about his book. I like that it is a historical fiction chapter book, and that there were actual facts in this book. I also like the writing in this book. The use of both inner and outer dialogue was very helpful in understanding the characters reactions to different situations. For example, “Fine! I’ll come!” Jack said through his teeth. He let Tad pull him through a group of grown-ups clubbing the stairs. When we get to the top, I’ll run back down, Jack thought. Then he can scream as loud as he wants. What I did not like about this book was the way the plot had so much to do with other books in the series. I think that each individual book in a series should have its own beginning, middle, end, problem and solution.
The central message of this book is to have hope. Annie and Jack took a lot of risk, and relied on a lot of people to complete the mission they were given. Thought out the book Annie and Jack did not understand why they experienced certain situations or why they met the people they did on their journey. In the end, Annie and Jack understood that some times things happen that can not be explained right away, but they needed to have hope that eventually everything would make sense. ( )

A serviceable entry in a popular series. ( )

This book is about two children, Jack and Annie, who go on a magical journey back in time to Abraham Lincolns adulthood, and then further back to his childhood. This book is interesting and entertaining, but at the same time it incorporates historical events to teach students about our country's past. ( )

Why is it that every child Osborne writes (aside from Jack and Annie) is a complete and utter brat? Also...complete bummer of an ending. That was heartwrenching! ( )
