This time Jack and Annie, of the Magic Tree House series, are off to Paris, time-traveling back to 1889 to witness the World's Fair. Following clues, the two find themselves on an exciting mission that will eventually take them to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Together they must save the "magicians" of the time-including Louis Pasteur and Thomas Alva Edison. The author does a fine job reading her own work; children will enjoy her pacing and her efforts to create suspense and to differentiate the voices of her characters. Mary Pope Osborne has a knack for bringing history alive in a playful way. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
