I'm sure many have felt cold before, or even "chilled to the bone." But nothing compares to how cold this story may make you feel! In a time of woolly mammoths and chilly landscapes of ice and snow, Jack and Annie must overcome the bitter cold. Of all the "Magic Tree House" books, this one was definitely an interesting one. The ending may have felt a bit repetitive, but I did like how it started. The side plot was engaging but just enough for young readers to enjoy.

So very earnest. So very full of simple stereotypes. So very well plotted and characterized that I can see why this has remained the most popular beginning chapter book series since I started in the business almost fifteen years ago.

Young siblings Jack and Annie find a mysterious box that they use to travel through time and space, often aided by they box's powerful, magical owner. That's right, in its most basic form the series is Doctor Who for 6-8 year old readers (which has been popular enough to become one of the longest running TV shows of all time). Older Jack (8) is the cautious, studious one who wants to learn before leaping; Annie (7) is the optimistic one who rushes right into everything. It's a perfect combination to establish a balance of adventure and education, with just a touch of tension between them. The tree house's owner provides the mystery.

(This review is for the audio of books 1-8, listened to in immediate succession.)

But the tiger had circled around the trees.He stood between the tallest tree and the mammoth.

They were trapped.
