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?

    "My daughter adores these"

    We have read these books at home but my daughter loves listening to them again and again while in the car or at the store. Sometimes she follows along in the book and they have her enthralled.

    Story
    "Jack and Annie have moved in!!!"
    If you could sum up Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8 in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining. Interesting. Addictive.


    What other book might you compare Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8 to and why?

    The Famous Five - because they are also marvellous adventure tales in which you really get to know and love the characters, like they are part of the family.


    What does Mary Pope Osborne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A very soothing, slow voice which is perfect for children.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely. I think my daughter did!


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly recommend this to everyone. Not only is it a great listen, my daughter (aged 4 1/2) has leaned so much about the different times that Jack and Annie visit. It is a ripper!

    My next listen will not be her


    How could the performance have been better?

    She could of had lessons


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No, its a waste of space on my kindle


    Any additional comments?

    This book tanks on my list

    "Wonderful"
    What did you love best about Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8?

    They are very captivating to young readers and little ears, my 4 year old to quote "but I didn't finish listening to all the book yet"


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The dinosaur story has been my favorite so far.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I certainly wouldn't mind, but my kids can only listen through 2 or so at a time.


    Any additional comments?

    I love how engrossed my son is by these books, they really captivate him and keep him engaged. I am truly excited about him being excited by the stories and listening to them, I think this will help him have the same enthusiasm for reading.

    Story
    "The Books Wouldn't Be This Popular For Nothing"
    Would you listen to Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8 again? Why?

    Yes, I would. And over and over and over . . .More importantly, my kids will listen to these over and over, although they're most excited to hear a new one. They know this series from having it read to them in print, starting when my older child was not yet 4. They're now 4 and 5-1/2.


    What about Mary Pope Osborne’s performance did you like?

    Mary Pope Osborne does an adequate job: she definitely doesn't sound like some of the amateur readers I've heard on free audiobooks. She's also, however, not as skilled as may of the professional audio readers.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I haven't been moved by the books, but I've realized over time that my kids have learned from them. I tend to skip over the parts the character Jack reads from his books and my mind stays with the story, but my kids soak it all in. Recently we saw a toucan at a zoo, and my 4 year old started talking about the different levels of the rainforest.

    Story
    "Wonderful stories for long drives."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you have children, these are a great way to pass the time on a long drive.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The stories are very captivating and each set of downloads includes around 8 books from the series. Each story builds on the next.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    We enjoy Mummies in the morning most. Book 3 I believe.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. Better to break them up.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall I would highly suggest them. The only critique I have is that they are all read by the Author. She does a good job, but just doesn't put enough "life" into each of the characters.
