I picked this book up expecting to feel brain cells dying as I read it. I was very wrong; I can see why my students enjoy this series so much. It's very well written (albeit extremely simplistic) and interesting. It was an extremely quick read and is educational, to boot! ( )

Jack and Annie are taken back in time by the Magic Tree House to India, where they must help save rare tigers from greedy poachers. Another fun adventure story from the Magic Tree House series, that also teaches kids about protecting endangered creatures. ( )

Kearsten says: In this one, Jack and Annie travel to India in their search for items to release their friend, Teddy, a dog, from a spell. In India they learn about endangered species, several jungle animals, and meet a blind man who teaches them to "listen" to the jungle.

I really like these books - they're simple enough to keep my 5-year-old's attention, they're exciting, and we both learn about new places and animals. Definitely recommended as read-alouds for 5-6 year-olds and a great early chapter book.

These books are also great conversation starters and would be excellent choices for a young reading group. ( )

Book description
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)
