The most recent addition to the series, "Magic Tree House" is a book called, Dark Day in the Deep Sea (2008). Jack and Annie are at it again with another adventure to tell. In this 39th book of the series, author Mary Pope Osborne takes the reader on an exciting adventure to the South Pacific in the 1870's. The two siblings stumble upon the crew of the HMS Challenger and take part in their deep sea exploration. The two main characters meet scientist Henry Moseley and Professor Charles Wyville Thomson who while aboard the Challenger from 1872 and 1876, sailed around the world finding multiple species of sea life for the first time. While aboard the ship, Jack and Annie face fierce storms and giant octopi (as beautifully illustrated on the cover) and they begin to question whether or not they will make it home again to share their new secret of happiness. You'll have the read the book to find out!

As a teacher, I would highly recommend this or any other book from "Magic Tree House" series. The characters are compelling and the author makes you feel like you are right in the middle of the action. There are many, many, many teachable moments that can be found within this book! One fascinating fact for this book in particular is that students can learn that just a little over one hundred years ago, scientists did not have near the ideas that they have now. The students have the potential to see how discoveries are made, and how the knowledge that we possess now was developed. Each book gives the reader insight to historical facts and geographical locations. These books provided perfect opportunities for interdisciplinary units and with over 40 books to choose from, the author has basically covered any topic this reading level would study. I think this book and this series are excellent and any middle elementary teacher would benefit from using these books as learning tools.

    All ik is that this particular series is for a certain age group. After a while as you get older it becomes boring. Well thats my opinion.
