Why did people tame horses? What jobs do horses have today? Why was Alexander the Great's horse so famous? I liked others of her tree house series better. Even tho my kids have outgrown these, sometimes i take out the newest ones from the library just to keep up with the series. Took this camping with me as a bedtime relaxer. Jun 08, Larry rated it it was amazing. I was impressed with my first read of the series.
The book teaches history and science while being fun to read. The book emphasizes kindness and humility. Again, I am gladdened that I can discuss this book — and feel very good about it — with children. Nov 05, Aulanie Olivares rated it it was amazing.
Stallion by Starlight by Mary Pope Osborne an incredible fantasy book! It is fun to read fantasy books because they can take you to a place to escape the real world. What I mean by this is if you're stressed or sad you can read a fantasy book to cheer you up because they can have a lot of mystical creatures etc. For example, Jack and Annie travel back in time to meet Alexander the Great. I think it would be cool to travel back in time to any historical period! This book is similar to other fantasy b Stallion by Starlight by Mary Pope Osborne an incredible fantasy book!
Stallion by Starlight by Mary Pope Osborne: | tiotidunwhitua.tk: Books
This book is similar to other fantasy books because it contains something that can't happen in real life,time traveling. I wish I could time travel. If I had to recommend this book to someone it would be to kids in elementary because Jack and Annie are to lovable characters that I have enjoyed throughout my childhood. Nov 09, Hannah Degn rated it liked it. This was a real treat to re-visit memory lane with Jack and Annie. I was able to get re-acquainted with Merlin and they joked about their many adventures together, the ghost town!
This series is a close second only to the Boxcar Children but it was nice to know that The Magic Tree House has aged well! Annie was the first feminist of my childhood honestly you could write an essay about that and use this book! So yes I occa This was a real treat to re-visit memory lane with Jack and Annie. So yes I occasionally sacrifice quality for quantity. SUE ME. Nov 07, Srihaanpoddar rated it really liked it. All Magic Tree House books are based in the past. Although this book is fiction, it is based on history. I learned a lot about Greece, and Alexander the Great.
I also enjoyed the fictional part of the story. Want to know why it's called Stallion By Starlight and want to know why there is a knight on the front cover? Read on and find out! Aug 05, Daphne Kim rated it it was amazing. My daughter and I continue this series. She especially like this one, because there was a Stallion and she likes horses. Plus, it teaches a lesson that to actually be great, you shouldn't brag about it or rub it in other people's faces.
All those comments came from her. Aug 21, Les Mangis rated it it was amazing. This is a great book in the series.

This is the 49th book in the Magic Tree House series and the first of four books in this Merlin Missions mini-series where Jack and Annie go on four quests to discover the secrets to greatness. If you aren't already a fan, I recommend that you start the series at the beginning, or at least at book 29 when the "Merlin Missions" begin.
We have read all of the stories in this series so far and we really like them. We started the series so long ago that our youngest doesn't remember all of the tale This is the 49th book in the Magic Tree House series and the first of four books in this Merlin Missions mini-series where Jack and Annie go on four quests to discover the secrets to greatness.
We started the series so long ago that our youngest doesn't remember all of the tales, so she is starting to read them independently. Overall, the tales are exciting, educational, and fun to read aloud. We usually try to read the newest book as soon as it comes out. And now we are working our way through the Research Guides now called Fact Tracker books as well. This story offers a fascinating look at the early years of Alexander the Great. We appreciated the interaction with Aristotle, especially since was known to have had a big influence on Alexander when he was a young teen.
We really enjoyed this book and are looking forward to reading Hurry Up, Houdini! We are never alone.
He's great enough that he can afford to have humility. Sep 20, Jordan added it. It was a good flashback to my Elementary reading. Jan 26, Wayne Walker rated it really liked it.
Time-traveling brother-and-sister duo Jack and Annie must find four secrets of greatness for Merlin the magician. On their first such adventure, they travel back in time to ancient Macedonia and meet Alexander the Great. However, young Alexander is prideful, bossy, and not very nice. His father, King Philip II, has purchase a bunch of new horses, including a black stallion named Bucephalus. Alexander wants the horse for his own, but the animal seems rather wild, and Philip intends to get rid of Time-traveling brother-and-sister duo Jack and Annie must find four secrets of greatness for Merlin the magician.
Alexander wants the horse for his own, but the animal seems rather wild, and Philip intends to get rid of it. Is there anything that Jack and Annie can do to help tame Bucephalus, enable Alexander to keep him, and in the process learn one secret of greatness? Even though our boys are long past the age range for the Magic Tree House books, and in fact are now out of school completely, my wife has continued to buy them because she enjoys reading about the adventures of Jack and Annie herself. Some object to them because of the magical element, but others feel that the magic is more of the fairy tale type rather than anything akin to actual sorcery or is just used as a literary vehicle to get the two back in time without necessarily promoting it.
The basic benefit of the series is introducing young readers to important historical figures and events in a fun way that captures their attention and makes the story interesting.
