Rags and Riches

by Natalie Pope Boyce, Mary Pope Osborne Illustrated by Sal Murdocca

Magic Tree House Research Guides are now Magic Tree House Fact Trackers! Track the facts with Jack and Annie!

When Jack and Annie got back from their adventure in Magic Tree House #44: A Ghost Tale for Christmas Time, they had lots of questions. Why did Charles Dickens write A Christmas Carol? How did he help the poor? What jobs did poor Victorian kids have? How did rich kids spend their time? Find out the answers to these questions and more as Jack and Annie track the facts.

Filled with up-to-date information, photos, illustrations, and fun tidbits from Jack and Annie, the Magic Tree House Fact Trackers are the perfect way for kids to find out more about the topics they discovered in their favorite Magic Tree House adventures.
