Fue genial. Estoy aprendiendo español, así que trato de leer cuando puedo. Las palabras son fáciles de entender y me gusta la historia. Esta serie es perfecto para los niños. ( )

The ends of the chapters always caused NoNoNoOOo! gasps when I closed the book. ( )

I read this with my 7 year old. It was the first chapter book that she wanted to finish. I liked how it brought up the subject of the illegal poaching of animals, specifically Tigers, in India. This is a sad problem that is happening to most of the exotic animals in these countries. We are handing this problem over to the younger generations so knowing about it at a young age might help in the protection of these animals.

This set of books in the Magic Tree House series really showed Osborne's creativity.  Jack and Annie were sent on random missions that had one ultimate goal (rescuing an enchanted puppy in 17-20 and saving Camelot in 21-24).  Jack and Annie brought back random items from each set of missions and Osborne was able to weave those unrelated items into a storyline and lesson for Jack and Annie.  I thought it was very creative and would appeal to my students as readers.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679890653, Paperback)

"This little dog is under a spell and needs your help. To free him, you must be given four special things:

A gift from a ship lost at sea,
A gift from the prairie blue,
A gift from a forest far away,
A gift from a kangaroo."

How would you feel if you found a note like this in your magic tree house? Eight-year-old Jack and his 7-year-old sister Annie love the funny, enchanted dog Teddy--and know they have no choice but to collect the gifts and break the mysterious spell. In Tigers at Twilight--the 19th adventure in award-winning author Mary Pope Osborne's popular Magic Tree House series--these brave, resourceful children have already found the first two gifts, and must find the third in "a forest far away." Knowing that the books in Morgan Le Fey's magic tree house have the power to transport them all over the world, they see their next destination on the cover of Wildlife of India. Once in the thick of the Indian jungle, it doesn't take them long to make friends with the monkeys, to see the huge gashes that tiger claws have made on the tree trunks, and to spot a python. This story is straight out of an episode of Wild Kingdom; the children spot animal after animal, with only a few close calls. When they find a rare tiger in a poacher's trap, however, the story turns around, and the children are eventually led to the third gift. A tribute to the disappearing tiger, and an animal-filled, action-focused adventure with plenty of cartoon-style illustrations, this slight book is sure to keep kids' attention. A generous layout combined with simple, short sentences promote quick reading that will build confidence in beginning readers. (Ages 4 to 8)
