Autumn’s Rating:


Minimum Recommended Age:



Jack and Annie have been waiting for the treehouse to come back for several days. When it finally appears again, they enter the treehouse to find a mouse that Annie names Peanut, and a note from Morgan that says she is under a spell. To help her, they must travel back to ancient Japan in the time of the ninjas. They meet the ninja master, who tells them they must prove their worth. Will they be able to pass his test and get an item to help break Morgan’s spell?

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.
