Jack and Annie are ready for their next fantasy mission in the Magic Tree House series.
They return to Victorian England as they are called to help rekindle Charles Dickens love of writing. ( )

The main idea of this book is to get children interested in history.
I enjoyed reading this book because it is in a narrative format. I believe trying to have children learn about history is difficult when random facts and events are being thrown at them but when they are arranged in an exciting narrative, it becomes quite a bit easier and the reader becomes more interested in the information. The set up is very affective when trying to interest young readers.
I also enjoyed that the books are a series and that you have to read them in order to fully understand the plot of each book. I think having these books as a series is a good idea because it also allows the author to connect, compare, and contrast the different time periods, culture, clothing, and different types of societies. I believe that that is so important when it comes to history because no everything is one single event, they connect. This book does an awesome job of connecting different societies and time periods.

Another strange, manic character. I'm not entirely certain how I felt about Dickens' portrayal in this. ( )
