Editorial Reviews

Jack and Annie's latest Merlin Mission sends them back into history to the flood-threatened city of Venice. With the help of mysterious instructions, a research book, and a packet of magic rhymes, the Magic Tree House adventurers hope to avert a most watery catastrophe.
Children's Literature - Julie Schneggenburger
Jack and Annie travel back in time two hundred and sixty years to Venice, Italy, in this "Magic Tree House" book. Their friends, Teddy and Kathleen, apprentices to Merlin, visited them at the oak tree house with information about this new mission. When Jack and Annie complete four missions, they will be able to make magic on their own. So, it is very important to get this mission done well especially since Venice could be destroyed during carnival time if Jack and Annie don't intervene. The duo was given a book of ten magic rhymes to help them to figure out how to keep Venice and its people safe from an imminent flood. Jack and Annie rely on this research book a lot when looking at canals and riding gondolas. They meet Tiepolo, a famous painter, and come to know the Ruler of the Seas and the Great Lady of the Lagoon. A flying lion, similar to Aslan of Narnia, finally helps Jack and Annie hold back the flood. The carnival continues and Venice is saved.

Mission: to save the Grand Lady of the Lagoon. Place: Venice Italy. When: 260 years back in time on the night of 'Carnival'. Jack and Annie of Frog Creek are off again on a new mission in the Merlin Series #33. Odds of surviving a dungeon: Fair to Good... i.e., if the 'book of magic' has something to help them, and Merlin's apprentices Kathleen and Teddy, too. Mary Pope Osborne never fails to create magic in her stories, with backgrounds of historical places, and supporting the suspense that follows Annie and Jack as they follow the instructions in a letter from Merlin -- '...When waters rise beneath the moon,/Visit the Grand Lady of the Lagoon.' The heroes meet grouchy guards, a son of a famous painter, climb the Giants' Stairs, fly the sky on a Golden Lion, and meet Neptune. Osborne visited Venice and of the city she writes: '...no photographs can truly do Venice justice. No notes or diagrams can truly capture her. Venice lives best in memory, stirring the deep waters of the imagination.'

My children ages 3 and 5 liked this book. They heard a lot about Thanksgiving in school and this was a nice read for at home. The story easy to follow even for the youngest.

Carnival at Candlelight is another wonderful story in the Magic Treehouse series. This time the children travel to 1700's Venice, Italy on a life saving adventure. I enjoyed this book because it requires the story teller and the reader to use their imagination. The reader also learns lessons in geography, history, and art which only adds to its value. I would recommend this book to any child looking for an adventure and a chance to learn at the same time!

I believe you shouldn&rsquo;t read Carnival at Candle Light. This is one of the worst books by Mary Pope Osborne. I have read it so I now you shouldn&rsquo;t read it. Jack and Annie travel back in time to save the city of Vince, Italy. It took me a long time to read it because it was really boring. The main characters are Jack and Annie . The battle between Neptune didn&rsquo;t last very long. They got locked in jail but got out quickly after. The climax was not very big the setting was mainly in Vince, Italy. The word choice was not very good. There was not a good problem and solution. I highly recommend reading Carnival at Candle Light. That is why I don&rsquo;t think you should read Carnival at Candle Light.
