Young readers can travel throughout history without leaving the comfort of home with Mary Pope Osbourne's award-winning series, Magic Tree House. The series follows Jack and Annie, a pair of siblings who embark on time-traveling, globe-spanning adventures with the help of spellbinding books and a tree house filled with mysterious powers.
Best for young readers beginning their journey into the world of chapter books, the original Magic Tree House books (ages 6-8) detail Jack and Annie's adventures around the world and across time, from the Ice Age to Ancient Greece.
Better suited for slightly older readers (ages 7-10), the Magic Tree House Merlin Missions series transports readers to faraway lands as Jack and Annie take on quests from Merlin the Magician himself.
Meanwhile, the graphic novel Magic Tree House: Dinosaurs Before Dark whisks Jack and Annie to the Mesozoic Era (the age of the Dinosaurs). With vibrant illustrations and an action-packed storyline, your child will be engrossed in the exciting and dangerous prehistoric past.
