- This is a teriffic Magic Tree House book about the Amazon. It had a lot of scary parts, such as the army ants and the vampire bats. This also had some really interesting and exemplary information on the Amazon. I definitely think that any Magic Tree House fan shouldn't miss this one. Happy reading!!!

- Enjoyable reading for my grandson.

- My son loved it
- I like this book because it is an adventure book. I believe it is a good book for kids that like adventure. The book is about two kids named Jack and Annie. They go on a trip to the amazon rain forest. When they get to the tree house they find a mouse. The mouse helps them through the rain forest. So they find a canoe on the river side and get in it. When they get down the river a monkey starts throwing red fruits at them. After it stops doing that piranhas started to eat the boat. Then after that Jack grabs a snake. So after that they back on the river side. When they get on the side, a army of ants come after them. When they get away from the army of ants they can not find the tree house , so they put the mouse on the ground and it finds the tree house. But the jaguar finds them and starts running after them. Now you need to read the book to see if they find what they are looking for.
- My kids love Jack and Annie books. I love that Annie is a strong adventurous female lead and how educational these books are.
- Magic Tree House speaks for itself.
- My 5 year old loved this book .
- I like books by Mary Pope Osborne but I think this is probably one of best books she ever wrote. I think that because it is filled with adventure. My favorite character in this book would be Morgan Le Fay or Annie. I recomend it for people who like adventure.
- I love reading these to my daughter. she jas quite the imagination and these books really keep her interested. we share the reading...I have her read some and then I read some --keeping her engaged and improving her reading skills. If you have a child with a vivid imagination....this series is for them!
- My granddaughter loves this series but I was shocked at how short these books are. I will find another series to buy for her.I don't think these are worth $5 each.
- this is the first book in the series that I have read to my 6- year-old. He just loved it and I must confess, so did I. The book isn't too long and the story has a fast pace which holds the child's attention. I like the illustrations too. All in all highly recommended. I've just ordered 5 more
