Editorial Reviews

To save Merlin, Jack and Annie know that they must continue their search for the secrets of true happiness. What they don't understand is how being transported to a tiny desert island in the remotest part of the ocean will help them on their quest. A surprising series of adventures, however, propels them toward a solution -- and a sea monster! Another delightful teaching tool by master of the craft Mary Pope Osborne.
Children's Literature - Barbara Carroll Roberts
Annie and Jack are back with another "Magic Tree House" adventure back in time—this time finding themselves aboard the HMS Challenger, a British ship embarked on a voyage of scientific discovery during the 1870s. Fans of the series will certainly enjoy this new adventure, full of rough weather, a giant octopus, and superstitious sailors, and many young readers will be intrigued to learn how much scientists did not know in the 19th Century. As with all book in this series, however, this new entry will appeal much more to children who prefer to read nonfiction, than to those who prefer strong character development and the exploration of relationships. This book is part of a sub-set of the "Magic Tree House" series; it is a "Merlin Mission" book, a little longer than the original books, with more complex vocabulary, meant for young readers who are ready to graduate up from beginning chapter books. This "Stepping Stone Book" story seems a bit more contrived than some in the series, particularly the personification of the octopus, but it is still a good choice for youngsters who enjoy taking in facts with their fiction.

Dark Day in the Deep Sea (Magic Tree House Series #39) 4.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 92 reviews.

The most recent addition to the series, "Magic Tree House" is a book called, Dark Day in the Deep Sea (2008). Jack and Annie are at it again with another adventure to tell. In this 39th book of the series, author Mary Pope Osborne takes the reader on an exciting adventure to the South Pacific in the 1870's. The two siblings stumble upon the crew of the HMS Challenger and take part in their deep sea exploration. The two main characters meet scientist Henry Moseley and Professor Charles Wyville Thomson who while aboard the Challenger from 1872 and 1876, sailed around the world finding multiple species of sea life for the first time. While aboard the ship, Jack and Annie face fierce storms and giant octopi (as beautifully illustrated on the cover) and they begin to question whether or not they will make it home again to share their new secret of happiness. You'll have the read the book to find out! As a teacher, I would highly recommend this or any other book from "Magic Tree House" series. The characters are compelling and the author makes you feel like you are right in the middle of the action. There are many, many, many teachable moments that can be found within this book! One fascinating fact for this book in particular is that students can learn that just a little over one hundred years ago, scientists did not have near the ideas that they have now. The students have the potential to see how discoveries are made, and how the knowledge that we possess now was developed. Each book gives the reader insight to historical facts and geographical locations. These books provided perfect opportunities for interdisciplinary units and with over 40 books to choose from, the author has basically covered any topic this reading level would study. I think this book and this series are excellent and any middle elementary teacher would benefit from using these books as learning tools.

My little brother loves it. He usually doesn't read books but he was so interested in it he did not want to go to bed! When I was little like him I loved these books. Jack and Annie ( the kids in the books) go on all these adventures. It's really good for a kids imagination. I sometimes read them and there usually for my brothers age ( 7 ). If you have a child, brother or sister that has a big imagination and loves to get in action then this is the book for him or her. Actually there's a series of these books! You could get them all and your child's or sibling's imagination will be a blast!!
