This is one of a great series for Kids grades 2-4. They are of a high interest level and contain a lot of factual informaton too. My grandson has read several at his school library and has read six more since he got his Nook. He participates in Accelerated Reader and can read these books for points. Plus, they are fairly inexpensive.

I thought this book was great because I leaned a lot about the amazon. The amazon river is over 4,000 miles long.

I highly recommend this series of books for adventurous readers. They are short, yet very educational. I've learned a lot from them. Now, I'm in middle school, but I remember reading those books all the time. I loved everything in these books of the magic tree house. Now, my younger sister reads them. She enjoys reading them as much as I did.

I just totally loved this book!  It always has some kind of mystery to find out about! This book is outrageously cool and has interesting facts.  You all should read it if you want Jack & Annie to go on an adventure while they find a monkey to guide them through the forest.   I'm seriously looking forward to reading all the adventurous books!  By: GlamClaw

Then they realized it was a bunch of flesh eating ants. After that they went to the river and they saw a canoe and rowed in it. They realized there was no paddles and they drifted away. Then they saw a monkey. It threw fruit at them. The moneky led them to the forest and gave them the fruit. They realized it was a mango and then they went home to Forg Creek Woods.

My favorite character is Peanut because he saves Jack and Annie . I liked the time my character saved Jack and Annie from the alligator. He took a rope and swung around the alligator's neck and pulled. Jack and Annie could get through the lake on their boat. Also a monkey tried to be friends with Peanut and Peanut was too scared , but later the monkey saved Pean.

I Like this book because I Like the alligators, the monkeys, and the tigers. My favorite part was where they were in the jungle.

Annie and Jack were sent back to the Amazon Rain Forest to see the creepiest and scariest animals that you have ever seen. And they end up meeting a monkey who might give them the gift they need, a gift to free Morgan.

This book told you a lot about the Amazon and the very interesting animals there. You also learn about really creepy stuff like snakes can gobble up a whole deer.
