The Barnes & Noble Review
The adventurous Magic Tree House kids are back in Book #26, and this time, they're thumping their chests with gorillas in the African rainforest.

In one of their journeys to discover different kinds of magic (themes in Books #25–28), Jack and Annie are instructed by Morgan to "speak a special language" and are left a book about Africa. Soon the two are whisked to the continent, where they meet a band of gorillas, including a couple of adorable babies and a large silverback. At first, Jack and Annie aren't sure if the band's leader is friendly, but when Jack does some gorilla imitations and later fends off a black leopard, the large simian takes to them. Jack and Annie even teach their new friends how to sign "I love you," and as always, Jack comes out with some terrific observations for his notebook.

As with all of Mary Pope Osborne's Magic Tree House books, Good Morning, Gorillas is a first-rate lesson in science and social studies. While adventure seekers learn about these gentle giants and their habitat, they're not bogged down with dry information, and they'll be inspired to investigate more. The book also includes extra facts about gorillas and endangered species, along with an author's note about her inspiration for the story. Another exciting trip in this whirlwind series! Matt Warner

This book was amazing. This was my very first Magic Tree House book that I have read and I read it when I was in Kindergarten because my teacher read it to my class during story time. I fell in love with this book and have been looking for it since, and I have finally found it again. I am 13 now and read the book maybe 8 years ago(because I was 5 turning 6) This book was amazing and it took you on a fun adventure,then again all books I read take me on adventures because reading is my escape. I was off topic at first but I just really love this book and recommend it to anyone who would even consider reading it. Anyone who hasn't read it should read it, yes it is geared at a smaller age group but it should be loved by people of all ages.

My favorite character is Bo Bo the monkey. Because she saves Annie when she falls through the trees.Annie was out in the woods and found a monkey. Annie started imatating Bo Bo. Bo Bo climbed a tree Annie climbed the tree. Bo Bo climbed higher. Annie climbed higher. Bo Bo swung to a different tree.Annie swung to a different tree and fell to the ground. Jack Annie¿s brother was worried and went to the treehouse for a flash light Bo Bo took Annie to the heard were he lived.
