Another look at a point in history and a topic kids are interested in It will whet kids whistle I ll have to look for the information guide too Not one of the most thrilling of Jack and Annie s adventures but I did Natives: Race and Class in the Ruins of Empire - The Sunday Times Bestseller enjoy the Manhattansue listing things that are beautiful I ve read aloud a ahem fair number of the Magic Tree House books and this one is by far the best It s surprisingly moving ven as it packs in a ton of wonderful information about life in a Roman legion I have mixed feelings about the Magic Tree House reboot My main concern however is just that I m unsure as to how the new 29 32 fit into the chronology of the story like do these take place between the original 28 and the Merlin Missions Or do these relegate the Merlin an alternate universe And are the 7 8 or are they 10 and 11 as we left them in Night of the Ninth Dragon A lot of uestions That being said the new stories are written in a funnier style with a faster pace and that s good for Gen Z and their soon to be kids who are used to media in that style If the goal is to return to the youngest MTH demographic and secure new readers for future books then I very much think that goal has been accomplished I m disappointed in this book because I generally love the Magic Tree House books I ve been reading them since around 1998 or 1999 when there were only a few of them and I was young nough to be in their target audience Obviously as an adult reader I don t find the plots uite as Lost Horizon engaging as I did as a child but I do consider them to be some of the best books out there at that reading level I m a children s librarian and I often recommend these books to 2nd or 3rd graders But this book has a factualrror that really bothers me The story has Jack and Annie visiting a Roman war camp in the year 172 under Emporer Marcus Aurelius In fact Aurelius is a major character in the story and he s the one who specifies the year He s amazed when Jack and Annie show him a Roman coin dated 173 But our system for numbering the years didn t xist until the 6th century 2nd century Romans would have identified the year by
the name of the consuls 172 was Year of the Consulship of Scipio and Maximus and name of the consuls 172 was Year of the Consulship of Scipio and Maximus and was Year of the Consulship of Severus and Pompeianus Less freuently the Romans did use numbers for their years but their numbering system started at the stimated year of the founding of Rome So 172 is 925 Ab urbe condita and 173 is 926 Ab urbe condita And as far as the coin goes 2nd century Roman coins didn t have the dat.
