These new illustrations, and the larger size, are both very appealing, and I can see this being a great gift for big fans of the series. There are a lot of reasons that this series sells 20,000 copies a week!
While I felt very old when I read the publicity information that talks about "parents who grew up with Magic Treehouse and want to share the adventure with their kids", there is no denying that these books have a lot of appeal to young readers.
Someone has to travel to the Otherworld in order to save Camelot. King Arthur has already lost three of his best knights who haven't returned from the Otherworld, so he refuses to send any more. It's up to Jack and Annie to save Camelot once again.
Jack and Annie have to rely on each other to get to the Otherworld and back safely and I love how well they work together. The illustrations are absolutely stunning and I love how everything fits together as the story unfolds. Overall, CHRISTMAS IN CAMELOT is a fun adventure about two siblings who always do what's right and use their heads to solve the various problems they come across. Young fans of Arthurian legend won't want to miss this and it's also perfect with the holiday season upon us.
Final Verdict: I recommend this to fans of adventures, holiday stories, Arthurian legend, and siblings working together.
