Read ePUB Mummies in the Morning (Magic Tree House, #3) Author Mary Pope Osborne – Pandora-jewelry.co
These books are like single bites of Twinkie fluffy and insubsantial, and you hardly notice them go down Because of that, I haven t bothered with reviews for the first two, but I m feeling the need to point something out now with the third This was an issue with the first two, but it s becoming increasingly egregious with this one Osborne is kind of out of control with her sentence fragments Look at this two page stretch as an example I count seven sentence fragments in this short passage All the way through the winding hallway.Down, down, down.And anotherOver the sand.Like a bird s nest.Then Jack.The same sound they had heard in the pyramid Now, to be clear, I don t think there s anything wrong with using the occasional fragment But Osborne s fragments aren t occasional they re practically the rule It reminds me of this scene from Finding Forrester when they re discussing starting sentences with conjunctions you can do it sometimes to make something stand out, but don t do it too much or your writing will look sloppy and amateur Anyway, it s an okay book in an okay series, even if they re all carbon copy duplicates they re all fine little Twinkie bites But those sentence fragments are starting to annoy I may have to switch to Ho Ho s Review first appeared on my website here. First of all, the cover is kind of scary looking, in my opinion Also, in the book there was a rather gruesome description of a mummy which I thought went above the target age of the book.Jack and Annie travel to Egypt, go inside an pyramid and meet a ghost queen They help her find her way to the afterlife I wasn t crazy about them meeting a ghost, since this book is supposed to teach history, but oh well Hate the way the author uses sentence fragments constantly Is annoying. This book was a very quick read I really like the Ancient Egypt aspect of this book and the fact that there was hieroglyphics all over the pyramid I was skiiming this book and it made me realize how intriguing it can be to read this series This series always makes me curious about what will happen next.One of the parts that stood out to me was when the ghost queen was gone after they found the ancient book.Even though this is a childrens book, it still has that element of surprise, suspense and adventure.I would have to agree with all of my other books in this series about how it was an okay read to me as a high schooler. hello nostalgia my old friend Jack And Annie Don T Need Another Mummy But That S What They Get When The Magic Tree House Whisks Them Back To Ancient Egypt There They Meet A Long Dead Queen Who Needs Their Help Will Jack And Annie Be Able To Solve The Puzzle, Or Will They End Up As Mummies Themselves I finished this one a month ago on my last day of my tutoring job but forgot to post a review I read this as a kid but barely remembered it Honestly, this was a really good little book Reading this as an adult, I liked it a lotthan the previous two books The writing seemed to flow smoother.FINAL VERDICT 4 stars Mummmies in the Morning was an okay book in this series It was not my favorite one This book starts off when Jack and Annie are in the treehouse and pick a book about Ancient Egypt Right as they are about to start their adventure a black cat appears in the treehouse When they get to the pyramid in Egypt the black cat takes them inside the pyramid Inside they find a mummy who needs the Book of the Dead so she can go to her next life Jack and Anne find the book and the magic septer and give it to the mummy The black cat then leads them out of the pyramid and they arrive back home.The main characters in the book are Jack and Annie Jack and Annie are siblings This is the third adventure they have been on togeather There is also a mummy in this story The mummy gets help from Jack and Annie.The setting of the story starts off in the magic treehouse in Frog Creek and then moves to a pyramid in Egypt The time period is during Ancient times.The theme of this book I beleive is helping others Jack and Annie help the mummy find the Book of the Dead so she can rest in peace It shows children that it is good to help others.I would recommend this book to anyone who is just starting to read chapter books This book is fun to read and also teaches children a good lesson. This is the third book in the series, and I have to say it s an improvement over the other two, but not much The story isn t as flat and bland as the previous two They discover hieroglyphics and learn about translating them They solve a small puzzle All in all I think my five year old would beinterested in this one than the last two, so I might have to try reading it with him I think my almost three year old would probably really enjoy this one because it will give him a whole new place to play pretend To him it s like Backyardigans in book form.This story actually had a little bitmemorable stuff, but it might be a little scarier for timid kids Nothing seems to scare my kids so I m not too worried about that one The adventure is actually a bitof an adventure as they face a ghost and have a puzzle to solve, then get stuck in one of the traps in the tomb It s an improvement on the other books, that s for sure.On a history level it s still pretty vague, but it s gotto offer than the previous two books They give an understanding that mummies are the burial process as well as some information about tombs and all that I think this is perhaps the most educational of the series thus far. My 6 year old son, Daniel, says, I wish I could give it 10 stars It s the best book ever. Mummies in the Morning is the third book in Mary Pope Osborne s Magic Tree House chapter book series This book is probably one of my favorites in the series because this book stretches farther than just the main idea of all the other books in the series The book started out just like the others, Jack and Annie went into the Frog Creek woods to the tree house This time Jack wished to go back in time to ancient Egypt to see the pyramids When the tree house stopped spinning, Jack and Annie looked out the window and saw a big parade with a golden coffin and a cat running toward the pyramid Annie decided to follow the parade to try to sneak a peak of the mummy, but when she got down there the parade of people vanished The only thing left was the black cat, which was staring at them from the base of the pyramid Jack and Annie followed the cat into a hole in the pyramid wall Jack and Annie walked to the middle of the pyramid where the tomb of the mummy was located Jack was terrified when they ran into a ghost queen who asked them for help finding the Book of the Dead The Book of the Dead would help her pass through the Underworld and onto her next life Jack and Annie described the hieroglyphs to her so she can tell them where the book was hidden After they found the book, they took the scroll to the ghost queen s sarcophagus Annie ran out after she saw the rotting body and got lost in the pyramid Jack ran after her and soon they realized they were trapped inside the tomb The black cat helped them find their way out and back to the tree house Jack and Annie wished to go home The tree house spun for a moment, and then they returned back to the Frog Creek Woods The two main characters in the book were Jack and Annie Jack wasof the thinker of the two and was always looking out for his little sister Annie Annie wasof the adventurous type and was always getting into things and or chasing things They always solved the problems they got into together with great teamwork The book began in Jack and Annie s house, then progressed to the Magic Tree House in the Frog Creek Woods After they wished to go to Egypt, they arrived there The rest of the book took place in the pyramid as Jack and Annie explored it In the end, they were back home in Frog Creek, Pennsylvania The theme or moral of the story would be that people should always trust their first instinct or gut feeling One time Jack wanted to go home on the safe route and Annie got side tracked and took them off of their course, which made them get lost In return to find their way out there were two paths and they went with Jack s gut feeling I would recommend this book to about a third grader or older It was a very easy read and is an interesting short story about ancient Egypt I would rate it a five out of five because it was really fun to read and kept me interested.
