Number eleven in the "Magic Tree House" series, this title follows Jack and Annie on another adventure. On the way home from the store, Jack and Annie spot a strange looking deer near their home. As they follow it into the woods, they come upon the Magic Tree, the source of all their adventures, and they are met by Morgan le Fay, their goddess of knowledge. She supplies the riddles that need to be answered by Jack and Annie. This latest story transports Jack and Annie to Africa. They have a series of adventures with various plains animals; a lion, wildebeests, hyenas, elephant, giraffe, and a honey guide, a bird who helps natives find honey. The text also includes some paragraphs that feature facts about the African plains. Some black and white drawings are included.

A boy and his sister go inside a magic tree house and it takes them on an adventure to Africa. I like this book because of the illustrations and the emotions of the characters. If I was in Africa I would be happy but if I was being chased by lions I would be scared like the characters in this book. The illustrations are just the way I pictured Africa.

My favorite character in this book is Annie because she is adventurous and says that she can talk to animals and read their minds, like when these animals got stuck in the muddy water.

 I think you should read my book. It is called Lions at Lunchtime. Jack and Annie got a letter from Morgan Le Fay and it said  please save Camelot.  Jack and Annie are the main characters. If  you like lions you might like this book. Jack and Annie got laughed at by hyenas and got trapped by a hungry lion. Jack and Annie got saved by a giraffe because lions avoid giraffes. It took me 2 days to read this book. The book was smart not babyish. Those were the reasons why I think you should read my book, Lions at Lunchtime.
