Booklist - 11/01/2014 Jack and Annie are back in the first Magic Tree House Super Edition series title. In this double-sized adventure, our time-traveling siblings are summoned by Teddy to Glastonbury, England, on June 4, 1944. Their mission is to locate Kathleen, who has gone missing behind enemy lines in Vichy France, and give her the magic items she requested via a coded note. The two jump from a plane piloted by Teddy, realizing at the last minute that they do not have the magic items for Kathleen. Undeterred, they make their way through the countryside, becoming personally acquainted with the history they know only vaguely: Nazis, the French Resistance movement, D-Day, and what it meant for everyone living through history’s darkest hour. Full-page black-and-white illustrations complement this thrilling rescue story. The longer format lends itself to the complex subject matter, and the cheer and humor with which Jack and Annie face obstacles, along with their thoughtful contemplation of what they have learned, prevent the story from being too scary for its audience. Fans of the series will be delighted. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The Magic Tree House is an institution, and national “appearances” by Jack and Annie characters, retail event kits, and even a sweepstakes prove that the magic is alive and well. - Copyright 2014 Booklist.
