I love the Magic Tree House series because of its unique take on historical events, animals, regions, and stories. The two main characters Jack and Annie are constantly transported to a different time and area in each book to introduce the reader to something new. In this story they are transported to Camelot, the kingdom of King Arthur. The writing is wonderfully done, often allowing the reader to paint a mental picture of what is going on with descriptive language. The wording is also done in a way that both young age readers and older readers can enjoy it and understand the content. The print is written large enough to make it easier for the reader, which is needed in children’s books. The occasional artwork throughout the book allows the reader to get a glimpse of how the author envisions the scene and gives faces to the main characters, but are still drawn in a way that lets the reader imagine themselves as the characters. The main idea of this story is to allow imagination, creativity, and knowledge be the basis behind any journey that you have the chance of taking. ( )

After receiving an invite to go to Camelot for Christmas, Jack and Annie show up to a city where there is no Christmas celebration. There has been an evil spell cast down from the Dark Wizard Mordred, which has caused a delay in the season. In order to restore the joy and happiness of Camelot, King Arthur is advised to send people to the 'Otherworld' to bring back special water. This water will help people remember the joy of Christmas. Jack and Annie go on the adventure and come home successful again. I wonder if they will ever get caught red handed? ( )

I liked this book for a significant amount of reasons! The book has amazing writing qualities. In the story, every chapter would end with a cliffhanger causing the reader to feel the need to read on. This story allows kids to use their imagination to take them on a journey to Camelot. Another great aspect of this beginner childrens book is the illustrations. About every 5 pages or so their will be an illustration that pictures what it is that is going on in the story and for the scenery which gives children the chance to imagine the story better themselves. At the end of the story the character Jack then began to write about the adventure he had just had. This gives kids the idea that writing about what they have done is cool and fun, inspiring them to write as well! This book is magnificent to get beginning readers to keep turning the pages and grow a love of reading at such a young age. ( )
