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.
