Description

Books 1-8 of the New York Times bestselling Magic Tree House series plus an interview with Mary Pope Osborne! Meet Jack and Annie! Jack and his younger sister, Annie, are just regular kids. But when they discover a tree house in the woods, something magical happens. In books 1-4, Jack and Annie are whisked back in time to the Age of Dinosaurs, a medieval castle, ancient pyramids, and treasure-seeking pirates. In books 5-8, Jack and Annie's friend, Morgan le Fay, is in trouble! They must find four "M" things to free her from a spell. Their adventures take them to meet a ninja master in ancient Japan, flee a crocodile on the Amazon River, discover the cave people of the Ice Age, and blast off to the moon in the future. It's a difficult and dangerous mission, but Jack and Annie will do anything to save a friend! Audiobooks in this set include: Dinosaurs Before Dark (#1), The Knight at Dawn (#2), Mummies in the Morning (#3), Pirates Past Noon (#4), Night of the Ninjas (#5), Afternoon on the Amazon (#6), Sunset of the Sabertooth (#7), and Midnight on the Moon (#8). Mary Pope Osborne brings together just the right combination of history, magic, and fast-paced adventure to satisfy kids, parents, teachers, and librarians all over the world with her New York Times bestselling series. "Osborne's narration is low-key and well-paced. A great way to introduce children who are reluctant readers or can't yet read to this highly entertaining book series and to reading in general."--Chicago Parent "Osborne's soothing, beautifully articulated voice and knack for characterization are reliably pleasing."--AudioFile

Professional reviews

"In this production of the first eight books in the wildly popular Magic Tree House series, author Mary Pope Osborne proves herself to be a narrator who can stand up with the pros. Her voices for Jack and Annie are subtly distinct and pitch-perfect. Annie's voice, in particular, is convincing as a 6-year-old. She delivers Annie's characteristic "Oh, wow!" with such feeling that listeners know something exciting is coming. Osborne also has an excellent sense of pace. She slows down for details and speeds up for action sequences to keep the books moving along. Fans will delight in revisiting these old favorites in audio format, and this production is sure to lure some new fans to the series. A.F. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
