Jack and Annie head to 18th-century Austria, where they must find and help a musician by the name of Mozart. Decked out in the craziest outfits they’ve ever worn—including a wig for Jack and a giant hoopskirt for Annie!—the two siblings search an entire palace to no avail. Their hunt is further hampered by the appearance of a mischievous little boy who is determined to follow them everywhere. But when the boy lets the animals out of the palace zoo, Jack and Annie have to use the only magic at their disposal to save themselves and the naughty little fellow.

Jack and Annie find themselves in eighteenth-century Vienna on a mission from Merlin: find a brilliant artist and put him or her on the right path. Their search is hampered by the insistent attentions of a six-year-old boy, Wolfie. After suspending their quest in order to help him, they discover that in doing so, they have completed their mission. Written with the ready charm and childlike spirit of adventure that make the Magic Tree House series a continuing favorite, this chapter book weaves historical details of Mozart’s Vienna into a tale of magic and mystery. Lively black-and-white illustrations enhance the book’s appeal. Grades 2-4. --Carolyn Phelan
