Review: Pirates Past Noon (Magic Tree House #4) by Mary Pope Osborne


SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS:
Illus. in black-and-white. Jack and Annie are in deep trouble when the Magic Tree House whisks them back to the days of desert islands, secret maps, hidden gold--and ruthless pirates! Will Jack and Annie discover a buried treasure? Will they find out the identity of the mysterious M? Or will they walk the plank?
MY TAKE:
This series just keeps getting better.

In Pirates Past Noon, Jackie and Annie end up being captured by pirates who want them to reveal where Captain Kidd's treasure is.

The flow of the story was pretty predictable, although I did like how Jack and Annie were able to figure out the clues.

The best thing about this book, I think, is the reveal of M. I honestly thought that this wouldn't happen for awhile. I'm glad it did, because this opens up the series to more exciting possibilities in the future.

THE GOOD:

  1. M's identity is revealed.
  2. Their adventure is interesting.
  3. Kids can learn new things about pirates.

THE BAD:

  1. The first part can feel a little formulaic.  

READ IT IF:

  1. Your child likes pirates.
  2. Your child likes mysteries.
  3. Your child likes magic.
