The Knight at Dawn (Magic Tree House #2): 02/06/10

The Knight at Dawn by Mary Pope Osborne is the second in the Magic Tree House series. Sean and Ian originally read the first eight together before I took over reading them with Sean. I am now reading the first eight in my spare time to "catch up."

In The Knight at Dawn Jack and Annie still don't know the true power of the tree house or who is behind it's magical powers. They have, however, figured out the basics to make it take them places and bring them home. This time they are drawn to a book about castles and end up experiencing one first hand.

The second book is still shorter and more simplistic in terms of plot and vocabulary from later books in the series but it starts give hints of things to come. At the moment the only mystery (introduced in book one) is the identity of the person leaving the M marked items behind in the worlds they have explored.

It's so neat to find another mom that reviews books! :-) If you'd like to see our reviews (myself and my 8-year-old son), visit the link below. It'll take you straight to the book reviews page. We've reviewed many of the Magic Tree House books! We really enjoy them and it's probably our favorite thing to enjoy together...reading. Such a bonding experience for us. And I agree, the Magic Tree House books are even fun for adults! At least I really enjoy them!
