Children's Literature - Shelli Horabik
Jack and Annie, the popular and great detectives who go back in time, are seeking to unlock the secret of greatness for Merlin the Magician. On their adventure, they meet Alexander the Great, who appears to be exactly the opposite of “Great!” This work of fiction takes historical facts and puts a twist on them. It takes magic, a horse, and bravery to complete this mission. Mary Pope Osborne does a great job of crafting a captivating and fun adventure with excitement and suspense in this welcome addition to the “Magic Tree House” series. Sal Murdocca’s pencil drawings capture the words vividly. Her attention to detail draws a clear picture of the story. Young readers are sure to enjoy this book from start to finish. Reviewer: Shelli Horabik; Ages 8 to 12.
