Jack & Annie's Baghdad Adventure
Jack and Annie are on another exciting adventure. Using the magic tree house in Frog Creek, PA, they travel to Ancient Baghdad. Author Mary Pope Osborne recalls her own travels in Iraq to write this Magic Tree House story. Like other adventures Jack and Annie have experienced, the brother and sister team must solve riddles in order to complete a mission. Jack and Annie's mission is to help the caliph of the Arab empire spread wisdom to the world. Using magic rhymes to help them complete their mission, Jack and Annie travel through a desert, battle a sandstorm, and face bandits to deliver a treasure to the caliph in Baghdad. I enjoyed this story of Jack and Annie's adventure in Ancient Baghdad. The tale has mystery and excitment that will appeal to kids as well as adults. I also like the historical settings and information about places that can be learned through these adventures. I look forward to the next magic trip of Jack and Annie.
