Do you know what it feel likes to be an eskimo? Well in
this story two characters named Jack and Annie go to the
Arctic in their magic tree house. They go there to solve
a riddle: "I cover what's real and hide what's true. But
sometimes I bring out the courage in you. What am I?"
On the way they find polar bear cubs on a patch of ice.
But when Jack tries to stand up....crack. The mother polar
bear appears on the top of a snowbank some fifty feet away.
Will they make it? Well, you will have to read the story
to find out.
My favorite part is when Jack and Annie see the northern
lights. It is my favorite part because I would really be
amazed to see them. Annie reminds me of my mom because she knows what animals say. My mom thinks she knows what
my dog says.
This book is part of a series in which they always travel
in a treehouse far away from their home. This makes the
stories much more interesting.
I recommend this book for second graders and up.
It has words that would be too hard for first graders.
I hope you get to read this book especially if you like
the outdoors and its wonders.
