This Magic Tree House Super Edition, previously published in hardcover as Magic Tree House Super Edition #1: Danger in the Darkest Hour, features a longer story with additional facts and photographs.
About this SeriesMary Pope Osborne's bestselling adventure series follows the exploits of a perfectly normal brother and sister, Jack and Annie Smith, who discover that the books in their tree house are anything but ordinary. Every book opens the doorway into another place and time, and soon the siblings find themselves confronting dinosaurs, mummies, ninjas, knights, and more unexpected adversaries.
The Magic Tree House series consists of two subseries. In the first, King Arthur's sister—the sorceress Morgan le Fay—sends Jack and Annie Smith from their home in Frog Creek, Pennsylvania, on a series of magical missions, each with a specific objective. In the second, beginning with Christmas in Camelot (formerly Book #29, now Book #1 of the Merlin Missions series), Arthur's court magician Merlin sends the kids on a series of difficult, often dangerous, learning quests. The Merlin Missions are longer than the books in the original series, and some take place in fantasy realms like Camelot rather than in historical times.
In a companion series called the Magic Tree House Fact Trackers, Mary Pope Osborne joins forces with her husband, Will Osborne, or her sister, Natalie Pope Boyce, to explore the real-life science and history behind each novel.

About the IllustratorSalvatore (Sal) Murdocca grew up in Brooklyn, New York, back in the days when, as long as he showed up at school and the dinner table, a kid was free to follow his own inclinations and explore his own imagination. For Sal, that meant wandering around with his friends and drawing and painting what he saw. He worked hard at his art, treating every drawing like the most important project in the world.
As an adult, Sal Murdocca is best known for his illustrations of the ever-popular Magic Tree House series. Drawing the ever-changing subjects, locations, time periods, and action of each book has been a constant challenge—and a learning experience too. Murdocca takes particular pride in the fact that he gets to show the world what each new Magic Tree House story will look like!
Murdocca lives in a magical area of southern France where he often bikes with his wife, carrying a sketchbook to draw beautiful things he sees along the way—some of which end up in the Magic Tree House series!
