MAGIC TREE HOUSE #40 Eve of the Emperor Penguin

by | Read by Mary Pope Osborne

Children Ages 6+ • 1.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Fans of the Magic Tree House series know that Jack and Annie have been challenged by the magician Merlin to discover the four secrets of happiness. This time their quest takes them to bleak Antarctica. With author Osborne narrating, listeners settle in to enjoy her unique blend of fact and fantasy. Osborne's soothing, beautifully articulated voice and knack for characterization are reliably pleasing. In addition to hearing Jack and Annie's childlike voices, listeners will enjoy meeting their northern guide, scientists, journalists, and even a penguin ("peep"!). There’s something especially sweet about this story, which concludes the children's search for happiness. Its positive message, delivered in Osborne's simple, sincere style, offers much to listeners of all ages. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
