Today I have a special review on the blog! I have some friends contributing to this review for a book we all read together!

TITLE: TIGERS AT TWILIGHT

TatTAUTHOR: Mary Pope Osborne

Series: Magic Treehouse

Book #: 19

About the book: Two young people, Jack and Annie, go to Dinoworld. They were trying to find a way to remove a spell from their friend Teddy. Teddy had a spell put on him in one of the previous books that had turned him into a dog. On their journey, they meet people from history, a dinosaur, and find a mysterious medallion.

Jack, Annie, and Teddy return to their tree house from Dinoworld and find a message that tells them to follow clues and collect gifts along the way. The gifts will help them undo the spell on Teddy. The gifts can be anywhere! One place the clues send them to is India. Here, they look for the third gift.

In India, they ride elephants, meet a hermit, and other exciting adventures.

My Review:

It’s such a page-turner, I couldn’t put it down. He (Marvin) is brave. In the blood test, I was nervous. He… was brave!
