Traveling back in time from the rumbling thunderstorms of present-day Frog Creek, Pennsylvania, to the booming of Civil War cannonballs near Richmond, Virginia, Jack and Annie set out on their 21st Magic Tree House adventure. The mysterious Morgan le Fay, magical librarian of Camelot, the long-ago kingdom of King Arthur, has left the brother and sister a message in their magic tree house, asking for their help saving Camelot. "Please find these four special kinds of writing for my library: Something to follow, Something to send, Something to learn, Something to lend." Jack and Annie enthusiastically transport themselves to a field near the fighting, and soon are enlisted as volunteer nurses assisting none other than Clara Barton, legendary "Angel of the Battlefield," as she drives her horse-drawn ambulance right onto the battlefields to help save wounded soldiers--including one with a very special connection to Jack and Annie.
Mary Pope Osborne's tremendously popular Magic Tree House series launches into a new realm, as Jack and Annie are challenged to save Camelot. Young readers will effortlessly learn the basics of Civil War history, while losing themselves in another gripping tale that has turned many a nonreader into a bookworm. (Ages 5 to 8) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

After having read previous Magic Tree House books written by Mary Pope Osborne, I was quite surprised to find her writing a children's book on such a complicated subject as the Civil War. I was skeptical the children would be able to understand and relate to the subject of the Civil War. However, my skepticism was quickly put to ease. Ms. Osborne does a very nice job of presenting an "overview" of the Civil War. She easily relates the Civil War to children through Jack's own personal feelings of what war is. This is an excellent book for children 8-9 years of age. Through its broad use of dialogue, language, and illustrations, children (and teachers) will quickly want to read of Jack and Annie's next adventures in Magic Tree House #22 Revolutionary War on Wednesday.
My favorite part was when Annie and Jack were in the tent with the wounded drummer boy John. What they did for him was very nice. They were nice to cheer him up.
I would recommend this book for K-4. You might need to read it out loud to a kindergartner, first graders could get through it with some help, it is just right for second graders, but for third and fourth grade it might not be much of a challenge.
This book has 21 others in its series. The next book will come out in May of 2001. These great series of books can also help teach many different things. This book was written by Mary Pope Osborne.
