In this production of the first eight books in the wildly popular Magic Tree House series, author Mary Pope Osborne proves herself to be a narrator who can stand up with the pros. Her voices for Jack and Annie are subtly distinct and pitch-perfect. Annie's voice, in particular, is convincing as a 6-year-old. She delivers Annie's characteristic "Oh, wow!" with such feeling that listeners know something exciting is coming. Osborne also has an excellent sense of pace. She slows down for details and speeds up for action sequences to keep the books moving along. Fans will delight in revisiting these old favorites in audio format, and this production is sure to lure some new fans to the series. A.F. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
