This is the second book in the Magic Tree House series and you can tell it’s finding its footing.  Jack & Annie go back to a castle in the Middle Ages and, don’t really do much.  They get chased.  A knight mysteriously helps them back to the tree house.  But there’s not much story.  Still a nice bit of historical fantasy but not as good as it gets.

Rating: **

I believe this is the first Magic Tree House story where Jack & Annie travel to the future.  It’s a whimsical adventure in which they go to a moonbase and then set out to explore the moon in search of a macguffin.  It’s fun with a bit of mystery.  Who was that man on the moon after all?
