This is the second book in the Magic Tree House series. The morning after their first adventure, Jack and Annie are up early because they are too excited to sleep. Annie gets her flashlight, and even though it is still dark they head into the forest to find the tree house again. Jack wants to be cautious and do research, but Annie reaches for the castle book she'd seen the day before and wishes them there. Again, the tree house spins, and they arrive in Medieval Europe. Jack is interested in learning all he can (though more out of the book than the actual experiences around them) and continues to document facts in his notebook. Annie races into the castle, and Jack follows. When Jack tries on a 40 pound helmet in the armory to see what it would feel like to have the weight of a 5 year old child on his head, he loses his balance and armor and weapons clatter and they are captured. They escape when Annie convinces their captors that her flashlight is magic. They have more adventures, learn an important new vocabulary word--precipice--swim across the moat, and then the knight they had followed returns them to the tree house. Back in his bedroom, Jack discovers the book has a bookmark with the same M as the medallion. ( )
