Jack and Annie make a second visit to the magic tree house. They are taken back to the Medieval Period. They observe a feast complete with food and entertainment. They observations are brief, as they are discovered and thrown into a damp, dark dirty dungeon. With Annie's clever tactics, they escape the dungeon but later find themselves swimming in a moat. They can see nothing in the pitch dark, but can hear something in the water behind them. Crocodiles?? Enjoy this second book in the Magic Tree House series. ( )

This is the second book in the Magic Tree house series where two siblings discovered a tree house than can travel thru time and space. In this book they travel to medieval times and the adventure occurs mainly in a castle. Wonderful series for early reader and for fulfilling and inspiring kids's thirst of adventure, fantasy and imagination. Chapters are short, language accesible and narrative easy to follow.

This is the second book in the Magic Tree House series and you can tell it's finding its footing. Jack & Annie go back to a castle in the Middle Ages and, don't really do much. They get chased. A knight mysteriously helps them back to the tree house. But there's not much story. Still a nice bit of historical fantasy but not as good as it gets. ( )

I would recommend this book to other people. This is a short book to read but it is a good book that keeps your attention. A magic tree house that whisks them to the middle ages where they find peacocks for dinner and boys in skirts. ( )

I liked this book for many reasons, but the biggest one was that it was a childhood favorite of mine. I loved it cause of the fantasy aspect of the book and that it was a short chapter book for young readers. Even though the book had few illustrations I found them very helpful and interesting for students. Those are the main things that I enjoyed about this book.
