A tree house that travels through time? Not possible, says Jack. But he has to admit — when he and his younger sister, Annie, start running into dinosaurs — that they're not in Frog Creek, PA, anymore. The first book is an entertaining time-travel fantasy series for young readers.
As a children's book author, Mary Pope Osborne considers herself to be a professional daydreamer.
