Mary Pope Osborne's Magic Tree House adventurers take their second Merlin-sent trip in this splendidly spooky Camelot tale. With the familiar, welcoming artwork from Sal Murdocca, Osborne's 30th entry takes Jack and Annie back to their old stomping ground to "bring order to the duke's castle." This time, the two kids are joined by Teddy -- Merlin's apprentice in Christmas in Camelot -- and after the three learn that the Raven King has swiped a legendary diamond from the duke's family (and made them invisible), they set out to get it back. With gently spine-tingling scenes and magical transformations to keep young readers on the edge of their chairs (Jack, Annie, and Teddy become ravens to rescue the diamond!), this MTH episode is one not to miss!
Children's Literature
Once again, Annie and Jack are summoned by Merlin to the fantasy world of Camelot. He informs them that the Diamond of Destiny has been stolen and the answer to its disappearance lies within a haunted castle. Jack and Annie, with a young magician named Teddy, find the castle and discover that it is inhabited by four ghosts-a girl, twin boys, and a dog. The ghosts communicate to the three that the problem is the stolen diamond, that it must be retrieved, and that the Raven King has it. The children find and retrieve the diamond, revive the ghosts and their sleeping household, and give the Raven King what his heart most desires. All of these books fly off the shelves in our school library. 2003, Random House, Ages 6 to 8.

In this book you can see youself going on to the adventures with the characters Jack and Annie to different places in time. You can about some history and different things that went on in another time. You cast away into another world right from your very own bed room. Once you get started with the adventure you can not break away.You are lured into reading until the very end of the pages. I have read several of the Magic Tree House books and love them all.

The magic tree house #30 was pretty good. In the begining it was cool how merlin hid his house inside them tree. It was cool how the author described things. Like when they were ravens it said how there eyes glimered. She realy made me wonder when they sid the riddle obout the two boys the girl and the dog. So I'll give Haunted Castle on Hallows Eve four stars

I read this book. I thought it was a good book to read because Jack and Annie are always going on a cool, awesome mission. If you read this book I would suggest it to your friend. They see Teddy again and you should read it. It is a magical book so if you like magic, and adventures Haunted Castles on Hallows Eve.

I read Haunted Castle on Hallows Eve. This book is about Jack and Annie they go on a big adventure to a castle .they are trying to get the diamond the family needs because they are invisible. But then they turn into ravens. they go into the raven king’s nest. Where the diamond is. They go with a boy named teddy. Read this book to find out do they get the diamond. I like Haunted Castle on Hallows Eve because it is a very big adventure. It has lots of magic like Magic Tree House, magic books. Morgan sends them on missions to lots of places. I like it because it has ravens I like ravens. If you like adventure or magic I recommend this book for you.
