Have you ever had a treehouse or wished you had one? Well if you have, this book will be fun for you to read. This book is about two kids that have a magic tree house and travel to some places. In this book they go to the Amazon rain forest, and that's when the trouble starts. While they are in the forest they have to search for a special rock that will help save a person. They go on an exciting adventure.

I liked this book because the animals in the story interesting and they went to a different country. My favorite part of the story was when the monkey gave the kids a magic stone.

There are some other books in the Magic Treehouse series that I would like to read. I think these books are good because they're adventures and I learn about things too.

I recommend this book to people in 4th grade and under because it's kind of a short chapter book. I think people should read the book because it is fun. There are other books by the same author if you like this one.
