Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This, Osborne's 23rd "Magic Tree House Book" takes the reader back to America's pioneer days, as they were experienced on the prairie. The overall storytelling fabric of this series describes the adventures of an eight year old brother and his seven year old sister within and from a magic tree house that appeared "one day" in a woods near their home. A helpful prologue sets the stage for the series, as it tells us that the tree house belongs to Morgan le Fay, a magical librarian from Camelot. Books in Morgan's library hold the pictures to which the children point in order to begin each story. Background for this volume comes in three pages of "More Facts about Twisters." In this story Jack and Annie are led to a sod schoolhouse in pioneer days where, during school, they encounter a bully and a tornado. After the resolution of these complications, the teenage schoolteacher, Miss Neeley, sums up the story with, "We must try to hold onto the good memories, and forget the bad ones." 2001, Random House, $3.99. Ages 6 to 8. Reviewer: Carolyn DCL Michaels
