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
    "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.

    Story
    "Holds their attention"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8 to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8?

    The way it holds the attention of my 5 year old grandson and how he plays out stories like it after listening.


    Any additional comments?

    The reader made it easy for the kids to tell characters apart and to follow the action in the stories. She was interested, so even the 3 year old was listening for longer than usual.

    "My 4 & 6 yr olds love it"
    Any additional comments?

    Mary Pope Osborne is a fantastic narrator. I really appreciate that!

    Also, I'm usually irritated with fiction books that so obviously want to teach kids things - but these really strike a balance. My boys are entranced by the plot lines, and they are having fun learning things ("Mommy, did you KNOW that the moon is HOT during the day!...etc)

    "six year old son loves it"
    If you could sum up Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8 in three words, what would they be?

    great childhood adventure


    Any additional comments?

    My six year old son has really enjoyed listening to these stories on the way to school. They have everything he loves-- dinosaurs, pirates, ninjas, space. He really relates to the main male character. He can't wait until I download the next set.

    Story
    "Grandson disappointed"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I thought the book would appear on my laptop and my 5 year old son would be able to see pictures as the story was read to him. Doesn't happen. It isn't even appearing on my desktop, so far. It is on my Kindle after 5 days but it's just read out loud, no pictures. This means nothing to him. We are both disappointed. I wasted a credit. What kid wants a book read to him/her with no pictures???? Dumb idea, right? I think I'll cancel my membership. I love to read and don't need books read to me or pictures. I did this for my grandchildren. So, I'm disappointed too.


    If you’ve listened to books by Mary Pope Osborne before, how does this one compare?

    The book is okay, but no pictures is a bummer


    How could the performance have been better?

    Performance was fine.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    My grandkids might.


    Any additional comments?

    Wish there were pictures to follow along with the story.
