Caramel is on a roll reading Magic Tree House books! He has already reviewed for Magic Tree House books for the book bunnies blog: Night of the Ninjas (Magic Tree House #5), Afternoon on the Amazon (Magic Tree House #6), Knights and Castles (Magic Tree House Fact Tracker #2), and Sunset of the Sabertooth (Magic Tree House #7). Today he shares with us his thoughts on Book #8: Midnight on the Moon. As usual, Sprinkles is taking notes and asking questions.
Sprinkles: So Caramel, what are Jack and Annie up to in this book?
Caramel: They are going to the moon. The title says so. And the cover picture.
S: So why do they go to the moon?
C: Because that is where they will find the fourth thing so that they can help their friend Morgan.
S: Do they find what they need?
S: Ok, you probably should not tell us what happens when they find all four things.
C: I’ll tell you what happens: Morgan comes back!
S: So they save her! That is great! But tell me more about the moon.
C: They meet a space person there.
S: So there is a man on the moon?
S: How so? There are no people on the moon right now.
C: There is a moon base and it is past 2031. They traveled ahead in time!
S: Oh that is cool! In many of the previous books they went back in time. Now they go ahead. There is no moon base right now.
C: There isn’t but there might be one in 2031..
S: That is true. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be on a moon base? Or to live in a space station?
C: I don’t know. It might not be that great!
S: Well, there are astronauts who live on the international space station (ISS) circling the Earth right now. If you want to check it out, here is the link to who is on the space station right now. As we are writing this post, there are three.
C: They live there?
S: Well, they stay there for long periods of time and then come back to Earth.
C: I don’t really want to leave Earth. I like it here. I never ever want to leave!
S: I can understand that. But it does seem very interesting, doesn’t it? And Jack and Annie spend only a little bit of time on this moon base, so maybe that kind of a short trip could be nice.
S: I don’t know. I would have liked to see the Earth rising…
C: That does look nice!
S: I know. But you are right. This planet is our home. And it is perfectly natural not to want to leave it… So what else do you want to say about this book? Now that the mystery about Morgan has been resolved, do you think you will continue with the series?
C: Because it is interesting. I want to see what else Jack and Annie will do.
S: That is great! We then have a lot more adventures of these two kids to read!
C: Yes! Stay tuned for more book bunny reviews!
