Mary Pope Osborne will be on Books & Books Coral Gables this month for a special talk about the newest in her series, Magic Tree House #45: A Crazy Day with Cobras. Also, author Natalie Pope Boyce will be present that evening to present her companion book titled Research Guide #23: Snakes and Other Reptiles. Tickets are required. Free tickets available at our three South Florida Books & Books stores.
There’s something quite magical about reading a Magic Tree House book. Fast-paced adventure, fascinating history and facts and, of course, that magic tree house!
And even more excitement awaits in Mary Pope Osborne’s newest book – Magic Tree House #45: Crazy day with Cobras. But there’s troubling news: Merlin’s beloved penguin, Penny, has been put under a spell!
Jack and Annie must find four things to break the spell. The first is a rare and precious emerald. When the magic tree house whisks them back to India over four hundred years ago to search for the jewel, they discover an amazing and exotic world filled with great danger. Will Jack and Annie find what they’re looking for? Will they avoid the wrath of the all-powerful Great Mogul, survive a crazy ride on a wild elephant, escape an attack by king cobras – and make it back to the magic tree house?
And you’ll have many more questions as you read along. Can snakes really be charmed? What do komodo dragons like to eat? How do you tell the difference between an alligator and a crocodile? Which reptile has the deadliest venom? So, grab your copy of Research Guide #23: Snakes and Other Reptiles by Natalie Pope Boyce and Mary Pope Osborne. Kids, parents, teachers – join us for this very special visit.
