In Dinosaurs Before Dark, Jack and his younger sister, Annie, stumble upon a tree house filled with books. Where did the tree house come from? How long has it been there? When Jack reads a book about the Cretaceous period, 65 million years ago, and wishes he could really see the Pteranodon, it suddenly appears at his window. In The Knight at Dawn Jack and Annie find peacocks for dinner and boys in skirts when the Magic Tree House transports them back to the Middle Ages.

In 1930, Abby Nichols is eight, and can't imagine what her future holds. The best things today would be having a dime for the fair, keeping her Pops from being angry, and saving up 87 cents to surprise her little sister with a tea set for Christmas. But Abby's world is changing fast. Soon there will be new siblings to take care of, a new house to move into, and new friends to meet. But there will also be good-byes to say and hard choices to make. As Abby grows older, how will she decide what sort of life will fit her best?
An adventure to blow you away! That's what Jack and Annie get when the Magic Tree House whisks them back to the 1870s. They land on the prairie near a one-room schoolhouse, where they meet a teenaged schoolteacher, some cool kids, and one big, scary bully. But the biggest and scariest thing is yet to come.
