Another exciting Magic Tree House story with Annie and Jack. This time their mission takes them to the deep sea to discover one of the secrets of happiness. After meeting a scientist on a ship and encountering a giant octopus, they realize that one secret to happiness is having compassion. These stories each teach children things about the places the characters are traveling too and it helps to spark their interest to learn more. It's a fun way to learn and urge kids to read more. ( )

Why, why oh why must Jack constantly berade his sister for doing "childish" things and then go off and do positively idiotic things himself? Sometimes I just want to punch Jack... ( )

The magic treehouse is a lot of fun when Annie and Jack get whisked off to an island. Jack and Annie never know that a ship is not actually a pirate ship it is a laboratory exploration ship. But what Jack and Annie don't know that this ship is actually looking for a deep sea monster. Will Jack and annie survive and find the third secret of happiness or will the be drowned by the monster? I recommend this book to young readers because this book has a lot of adventure and in this book you will learn a lesson. ( )

Take the plunge with Jack and Annie!

Jack and Annie continue their quest for the secrets of happiness—secrets they need if they're going to save Merlin. But when the Magic Tree House leads them to a tiny deserted island in the middle of the ocean, they’re not sure who needs help more—Merlin or themselves! The brother and sister team are soon rescued by a ship of explorers and scientists. But that isn’t the end of their troubles, because the crew isn’t looking for the secrets of happiness. The crew is looking for . . . a sea monster!

Mary Pope Osborne takes young readers back to the mid-nineteenth century, a time of exploration and adventure. This paperback edition contains all-new backmatter full of activities, and the first printing includes temporary tattoos.
