Aye, matey! This book is the real treasure right here, being short yet still full of zest. When Jack and Annie are whisked away by the Magic Tree House, they arrive unexpected in a world of buried treasure and pirate ships. Encountering some scoundrels along the way, will they be able to find what they are really looking for in the end? (It was nice to finally get some closure on other details, however). Ideally, readers should be middle school aged or younger, or just starting with chapter books and such.

So very earnest. So very full of simple stereotypes. So very well plotted and characterized that I can see why this has remained the most popular beginning chapter book series since I started in the business almost fifteen years ago.

Young siblings Jack and Annie find a mysterious box that they use to travel through time and space, often aided by they box's powerful, magical owner. That's right, in its most basic form the series is Doctor Who for 6-8 year old readers (which has been popular enough to become one of the longest running TV shows of all time). Older Jack (8) is the cautious, studious one who wants to learn before leaping; Annie (7) is the optimistic one who rushes right into everything. It's a perfect combination to establish a balance of adventure and education, with just a touch of tension between them. The tree house's owner provides the mystery.

(This review is for the audio of books 1-8, listened to in immediate succession.)

The plot is dreadful - tediously like the prior ones. Wish we'd skipped it.
