Where did the magic tree house come from? Before Jack and Anie can find out, the mysterious tree house whisks them back to the prehistoric past. Now can they do it before dark... or will they become a dinosaur's dinner? Illus. in black-and-white. "With an entertaining blend of fact, farce, and fantasy, Osborne tells the story of Jack and his sister, Annie, who take a trip in a magic tree house and land in a time 65 million years ago. They find dinosaurs and volcanoes and adventure. Veteran storyteller Osborne builds the power of reading into the story: it's the books in the tree house that give the kids the magic to travel and see far, far away."—Booklist.

      Comments about Dinosaurs Before Dark:

      My 6 year old bookworm daughter LOVED this book (and has also read the 2nd in the series). It was full of adventure, with easy to understand text for younger readers, but would also suit older readers. Great to find a good series to suit both boys and girls! I will be buying many more for her over the coming years.
