Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This tidy tale is Osborne's thirty-fifth installment of the "Magic Tree House" series, and the seventh designated as a "Merlin Mission." The lead characters, Jack and Annie, continue their time-travel, via their magic tree house, completing whatever adventure Merlin the Magician sets up for them. This time they are off to Paris where they must find the Magician of Sound, the Magician of Light, the Magician of the Invisible, and the Magician of Iron at the 1889 World's Fair. And they must locate the four magicians—and their secrets—before an evil sorcerer nabs them first. As in previous books, Jack and Annie are helped by a book of magic rhymes given to them by Teddy and Kathleen, their two young sorcerer friends from Camelot. Jack and Annie choose to use the "Spin into the Air" rhyme, to bike across the sky. They are in a rush, you see, to arrive at the Eiffel Tower in time to crash a private party to which only the four magicians have been invited. Can they save the magicians from the evil sorcerer? Jack and Annie soon learn that things are not what they appear. In keeping with Osborne's use of history, the magicians turn out to be Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Alva Edison, Louis Pasteur, and Gustave Eiffel. And their secrets reflect the reasons behind their success: a thirst for adventure, hard work, tenacity, preparation, and hope. Osborne includes a bio of each inventor in the back of the book. 2006, Random House Children's Books, and Ages 9 to 12.
