Afternoon on the Amazon

Magic Tree House #6


Mary Pope Osborne

A boy and a girl are on a rushing river in a lush jungle with lots of animals.  They are trying to avoid a crocodile!

Autumn’s Rating:


Minimum Recommended Age:



Jack and Annie head to the Amazon rainforest to try to find a second item to break Morgan’s spell. Danger is all around them and Peanut the mouse and a monkey help lead them through the rainforest. As the children rush back toward the treehouse and safety, they still don’t have an item to help break the spell. Will they be able to find what Morgan needs before they head home?

Positive Messages:

The siblings band together to work through their challenges on their adventures and demonstrate good teamwork. Never give up is also a common theme throughout the series as the characters try to figure out some tough challenges.



Violence & Scariness:

Some scary descriptions of animals in the rainforest – an army of flesh-eating ants, fish with sharp teeth that can eat people, a “branch” that is actually a crocodile, a “vine” that is a snake, and a mother jaguar that is ready to pounce on Annie for getting too close to her baby.

Parents Should Know:

At the end when Jack and Annie get the second item and they are back home in the treehouse, they talk to Morgan believing she can hear them wherever she is.

Mom Says:

I loved this series! I would say you could read this up until age 9, and then your child may start to outgrow it. We read these books every single night until we had read the entire series. The characters mostly go back in time, although there are a few futuristic adventures, and it really sparked an interest in history for both Autumn and Aubrey.
