First graders who are strong readers need books just like this-- heavily illustrated, with large text and formulaic plots that are still interesting and engaging. When the stories also include fascinating history, readers will obsessively collect the books to reread. This was certainly true of my own children, and I was always sad that there wasn't a series like this when I was a child. Aside from the Ruth Chew fantasy books, there weren't a lot of easy fantasy chapter books. This series has continued on for so many years because it understands the needs of young readers, and provides them with thrills, mystery, history, and a pair of siblings that get along most of the time!
Antonio Caparo's illustrations are lovely, and seeing the pages in full color is such a treat! Readers of the original Magic Treehouse book might miss Sal Murdocca's iconic illustrations, but young readers won't care.
My children were huge fans of this series, and these Deluxe Editions are great presents for any 6-year-old you might know!
