Magic Tree House #50 - Hurry Up, Houdini!Let us begin by congratulating author Mary Pope Osborne and illustrator Sal Murdocca on their 50th Magic Tree House novel (this obviously doesn’t include the many non-fiction companion books that often accompany Magic Tree House releases). That’s a big number! Hooray for you, and thank you from one of your (many, many, many) families of readers. Now, about Hurry Up, Houdini! – we now know that Jack and Annie’s 13th set of missions (books 49-52) is sending them to find what makes ‘greatness’. I won’t give away who we (er.. Jack and Annie) met in #49 – Stallions by Starlight, but I think it’s pretty clear we’re going to meet someone named Houdini in this edition.

I could be wrong, but I’m guessing that it’s Jeremy Houdini, the little-known inventor of the automatic card and bunny shuffler (see the cover).
