In the latest offering from the 'Magic Tree House' series, Mary Pope Osborne treats readers to an inside look at one of her favorite subjects - the theater. Jack and Annie are whisked back to Elizabethan England where they meet the Bard of Avon himself, William Shakespeare, and luckily for them he is desperate for two small actors for his latest play! A wonderful adventure as well as the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for young readers.
The 'Magic Tree House' series follows the adventures of 8-year-old Jack and 7-year-old Annie, a brother and sister who find a mysterious tree house filled with books in the woods near their home. The tree house belongs to Morgan le Fay, a magical librarian from the time of King Arthur, who sends Jack and Annie travelling through time and space to help free her from a spell. Each book is its own adventure, and with each book Jack and Annie move closer to becoming Master Librarians themselves!
