Publisher's Summary

This audio collection includes:

  • Dinosaurs Before Dark: Jack and his younger sister, Annie, stumble upon a tree house filled with books. Before Jack and Annie can figure out the mystery of the tree house, it whisks them back to the prehistoric past. Now they have to figure out how to get home. Can they do it before dark, or will they be become a dinosaur’s dinner?
  • The Knight at Dawn: Peacocks for dinner and boys in skirts. That’s what Jack and Annie find when the Magic Tree House transports them back to the Middle Ages for another wild adventure. They find themselves in the middle of an enormous castle and can hear the beginnings of a feast under way in the Great Hall. But Jack and Annie aren’t exactly welcome guests!
  • Mummies in the Morning: Jack and Annie don’t need another mummy. But that’s what they get when the Magic Tree House whisks them back to ancient Egypt after reading a book on the same subject. There they find themselves in a pyramid face to face with a long dead queen named Hutepi. Will Jack and Annie be able to help her, or will they end up as mummies themselves?
  • Pirates Past Noon: It’s a veritable treasure trove of trouble when the Magic Tree House carries Jack and Annie back to the days of deserted islands, secret maps, and dangerous pirates! Will they discover the hidden buried treasure, or will they face the possibility of walking the plank?
  • Night of the Ninjas: Have you ever met a real live ninja? Jack and Annie do when the Magic Tree House whisks them back to ancient Japan in search of enchantress Morgan le Fay. When they arrive, they find themselves in the cave of a ninja master. Will they learn the secrets of the ninja? Or will the evil samurai warriors get them first?
  • Afternoon on the Amazon: Vampire bats and killer ants? That's what Jack and Annie are about to run into when the Magic Tree House whisks them back in time to a South American Rain Forest in search of the elusive Morgan le Fay. It's not long before they get hopelessly lost on the Amazon River. Will they be able to find their way back to the tree house before they are trampled by stampeding killer ants?
  • Sunset of the Sabertooth: The Ice Age is very cool... for two kids in bathing suits! Jack and Annie nearly freeze when the Magic Tree House whisks them back into the time of cave people and woolly mammoths. But nothing can stop them from having another wild adventure–not even a sabertooth tiger!
  • Midnight on the Moon: Three... two... one... BLAST OFF! The Magic Tree House whisks Jack and Annie off to the moon–and the future. Their mission? To find the last “M” thing that will free Morgan from the spell. Can they do it before the air in their oxygen tank runs out? Will they mysterious moon man help them? And why is Peanut the mouse acting so strange?

    Story
    "Vocab builder for 7 yr old as I mentally check out"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Formulaic. Go to tree. Go to some historical time. Learn three vocabulary words. Go back to tree. I want to pull my hair out. Yet another unfortunate choice of having the author narrate. Of course, I'm 40; I'm hard to please. My seven year old son, however is totally engrossed and is learning as we drive in the car. And for that, Mary Pope Osborne, I love you.


    What could Mary Pope Osborne have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Have someone exile read it, deviate from the formula - however I wouldn't notice because I mentally tune out five words in.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mary Pope Osborne’s performances?

    Yes. I value my son's education.


    Do you think Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    sure, how 'bout 9-16?


    Any additional comments?

    Ambivalence reigns here. I think I've stated my case.

    "Great for kids"

    It's hard to find a book that will entertain both my 4 year old girl and 7 year old son. They LOVED these.

    "Chapters have been fixed on audiobooks now"
    Any additional comments?

    I was nervous buying this on audible due to all the other reviews complaining about poor audio formatting and no chapters. I was glad to see that problem has been fixed and all the content is neatly arranged into chapters now. This volume covers the first 8 books and therefore has 80 audible chapters, 10 for each book, exactly following the printed versions of the book. There is a bonus chapter 81 which is a recorded interview with the author, and was fun to listen.

    My daughter loves these books and the audio version has made long car drives so much easier. I find the Magic Tree House series to be easily one of the most well thought-out, educational and imaginative series for children this age. It exposes them to a wide variety of subject matters about history, science, geography in a fun way ... it's pure genius.

    Some other reviewer has complained that the books are "formulaic" as if that's a bad thing. This reviewer is completely missing the point of these books. For early readers you want the plot flows to be manageable and just a little predictable so kids can wrap their heads around all the content and new information ... while also learning how to read.

    "Books not labeled"

    Beware when purchasing that the individual books are not labeled as their own books but rather as a chapter. Thus, the collection lists 81 chapters. Not very user friendly when wanting to hear a specific chapter out of a specific book. Would be nice to see that changed in an update.
