My son and I just finished this set of Magic Treehouse books and it was another enjoyable set.
The first four focus on getting gifts from various people/things to give to Morgan and Jack and Annie go off on these missions. I enjoyed Tonight on the Titanic the best, as did my 8-year-old, but the other three stories were great as well.
The next four focused on getting special writings from various people and this time Jack and Annie were working to save a boy who had been turned into a dog. Jack and Annie named the dog Teddy and later Teddy shows up to help them in more books (we had already read these so we knew about Teddy.)
I really enjoyed these four stories, two centering on wars (I learned about Hessians in the Revolutionary War) and two centering on natural disasters. Things were learned in all four books and I really enjoyed them, as they taught and they were very entertaining.
My son is now ready to move onto the next set and I look forward to reading more of Jack and Annie's adventures.
I can't recommend these books enough for a 6-10 age range. The audios are read by the author and very well done. My son and I look forward to our time in the car when we can listen to these.
