#42. Pirates Past Noon

Pirates Past Noon by Mary Pope Osborne
Number 4 in the Magic Tree House series

Pages: 67
Finished: July 19, 2007
Reason for Reading: Read-aloud to my 7yo son
Rating: 4/5

First Sentence:

Jack stared out his bedroom window


Recommend: Yes. This is actually a well written series of fantasy books for very young children. With a limited vocabulary they succeed very well with keeping children rivetted. My 7yo (who is not quite reading on his own yet) finds these books very exciting and I will continue to read these aloud to him over the next few months. Pirates Past Noon concludes the running story-line of the first 4 books and the 7yo is quite concerned how Jack and Annie will ever manage to get back to the tree house again. He's anxiously awaiting the start of the next book.
