Haunted Castle on Hallows Eve

Magic Tree House #30

In this story, Jack and Annie are given a mission by Merlin the magician to help find the Stone of Destiny that has been stolen. The children return to Camelot to try and complete their mission, but once they arrive there, a plan doesn’t come together so easily for them. They must enter a haunted castle on Hallows Eve and try to find the missing stone. Between ghosts haunting the castle and an endless amount of ravens trying to protect the valued Stone of Destiny, Jack and Annie must work together to come up with the right plan, executed at the right time, in order to try and get near the precious stolen stone. Do they succeed in returning the stone?

In book #30 of the Magic Tree House Series, I really enjoyed being transported with Jack and Annie to the haunted castle at Camelot. I loved that it had ghosts and that the author wrote such a fun backstory as to why the castle was haunted and so deserted in the first place. It was great taking the trip with Jack and Annie and I think your child will enjoy traveling along with them, as well. The publisher lists this story to be for ages 6-9 and grades 1-4.
