If you like awesome stories, you should read Magic Tree House Summer of the Sea Serpent. I think this was a great book! The writing and the illustrations were by Mary Pope Osborne. In the story, two kids named Jack and Annie go on an adventure to a sea and fight a giant serpent, try to get a shiny, gold sword and even turn into a seals! I think this book was incredible! The story had a bunch of magic almost everywhere! All the pictures are amazing like the serpent, the sword, the jelly fishes, the seals, and under water. The story was the best fiction I ever read! The story had about 12 chapters in it. There are people that come from Camelot to where Jack and Annie are too! This book has some more challenging words in it. I think this book is good for boys and girls. I hope you'll like this book when you read Summer of the Sea Serpent!

Well, you will soon discover it as you read this fascinating tale with a wonderful storyline; you are sure to be engrossed with this seaside adventure.Plenty of action, adventure, and fun with many twists & turns are ahead for you. If you enjoy reading this novel, you will probably enjoy the other Magic Tree House works of fiction. Enjoy!

The best

I read the book Summer of the Sea Serpent. It’s a story about two kids who travel to a land and they have to find a magical sword. I think you should read this book because it’s full of adventure. It has a giant snake in it. There also is a giant spider. They find a magic sword. They travel to a world just like Camelot. They find two seals and one of them is Teddy. I think you should read it because it is a pretty good book. So this is my persuasive opinion about this book.

'Before night falls on this long summer day, A shining sword must find its way Into your hands and out of the gloom-- Or Camelot`s king shall meet his doom.' This is one of the magical books from the Magic Tree House series.The main characters in this book are Jack and Annie.The story takes place before Camelot was ever discovered.Merlin the Magician calls on Jack and Annie for help,to gain control of a magical sword of light which would be used for good and not evil. Jack and Annie found the sword guarded by the sea serpent.He promised them they could have the sword if they could tell him the real purpose of the sword. They remembered a line from Merlins rhyme.'Answer a question with love not fear.' Then Jack lost all his fear and realized the sword was meant for good.Then with a sparkle of light from the sword Jack said 'The purpose of the sword is not fighting! The purpose of the sword is peace!' I think this book is outstanding because,the author takes modern kids and moves them back in time,putting them in an old story.The kids make the old story more interesting. I like this author very much because she make a new story out of an old story. I recommened this book for boys and girls with imagination.
