What would you do if you came face to face with a live cobra? Jack and Annie are off on another Merlin Mission. Penny, the abandoned penguin which they rescued on a previous mission and gave to Merlin, has been accidentally turned into a stone statue. In order to help bring her back to life, Jack and Annie must go four-hundred years back in time to visit one of the Great Moguls of India and obtain an emerald stone shaped like a rose. While posing as ambassadors from Frog Creek to Shah Jahan, the Great Mogul who built the Taj Mahal as a memorial to his late wife, they receive the stone, but lose it after an episode with a stampeding elephant. As they search for it, they find themselves being attacked by a daddy king cobra protecting his mate and their eggs. Will they find the stone? How will they escape? There are some book series which I read where I don’t do a review for every single book, but I continue to do so with the Magic Tree House books because they are fun stories about different times and places which are very interesting while also being quite educational.

The story was okay,but that person was actally right...ive seen mary write better books.she could have used better words and description,so the lack of that made the story seem very short,even though i hate to say that.

Crazy Day with Cobras was written by Mary Pope Osborne. The characters are Anne and Jack. This story took place in the rain forest on January 11 2011 in. Anne and Jack where having a dream about seeing cobras and they woke up in a rain forest and went out and was looking for a new plan for not getting caught by their parents while they was trying to find cobras in the forest. Their mom finally came outside and didn't want them to hunt/look for cobras because she said that they were dangerous. Anne and jack where always looking for things to get for a new invention that they knew that they would get into trouble for by their parents. Jack was always the suspicious one that would dream about things that he would think he would wake up in the dream in reality. Anne was the one that was scared and that thought she would get ate by some animal one day and in one other book they were playing a bored game and she had a dream about it and some other animal coming after her and she went to go sleep with her brother jack. I would really recommend that you read this book because it is very interesting and you wouldn't regret it because it would make your time worthwhile during your journey reading it. A crazy day with cobras is a very good book hope you like it because if my grandma which is 80 something liked reading the book I know that you would enjoy it reading that one specific book.

Will I like it? I really hate the cost. Either we waste gasoline trying to get to the actual store (At the store, the cost is $4.99 I think) or we waste money on Mom's credit card. I have a feeling I might enjoy this though. Maybe. Maybe not. Onthe nookcolor, it's $9.99.
