Merlin the magician will not eat or sleep or speak to anyone in Camelot. What can be done? The enchantress Morgan knows who to ask for help: young Jack and Annie of Frog Creek, Pennsylvania! The brother-and-sister team quickly head off in the magic tree house on another magical and historical adventure.

Their mission: discover one of the four secrets of happiness.

Their journey: to a land of fierce samurai and great beauty, the capital city of Edo (now the city of Tokyo), in old Japan in the 1600s.

Their tools: a research book to guide them and a magic wand with three special rules.
In Dragon of the Red Dawn, Mary Pope Osborne transports listeners back to the splendor, rich culture, and magic of traditional Japan.

An Imperial Garden and an Imperial Palace were in a city once called Edo, what is its name today? In what country is the Sumida River? And on what island is Mount Fuji, the highest mountain of that island, found? There are interesting facts that Jack & Annie discover in this novel "Dragon of the Red Dawn" as they are on an adventure-mission for Merlin. They find out the meaning of a shogun (show-gun). Also, they learn the meaning of a samurai (SAM-uh-rye). This novel has a well developed storyline and supporting cast to keep readers intrigued. **Good for learning some history in an exciting way.

My favorite Character in this book was Jack, because he was funny and likes to write notes. I liked the part of the book when Jack pretends to have a passport and said ¿I forgot it at home,.¿

This is a book about jack and Annie¿s adventures to the Japanese imperial city. they go there on a quest to help their friend merlin find the happiness in life. When they arrive in the imperial Gardens they saw a samuri leader and his followers they had a book with them to time them what happened in history in they time that there in. has they started to clim down the tree house they saw two samuri and an old man. they started to run away becouse they read that all men and women in the city and gardens had to have pass ports which they did not have. when they did the samuri chased them down and cought them. the old man quickly saved them bye telling the samuri that there his students named baku and koto. when the samuri stop and made them recite a poem becouse that is what the old man named Bansho teaches. Annie was good at it so she had no problem but jack had a huge problem beacouse he couldn't remember one not even a samll rym. some how they got passed the samuri and left the imperial city. they hurried to the home of bansho with his permition they could stay there for the night. As they were sleeping a fire started in the city and since it has been so dry latly it lighted up in flames. so they went to try and help bansho try to put out the fire. They couldn't do it bye there selves so they ran back to bansko's home and got a magical wand that there friends gave them before they went on the trip. so they used it and poof a dragon comes out of noware and lets them clim on here back as they were flying to the city they Figured out that they were rideing on a dragon called The Cloud Dragon. he cammandes the rain and thunder clouds of japan. So as that got closer to the city clouds came out of the dragons mouth and more and more untill the entire sky was dark and then it started to rain and the rain put out the fire and all was well again.

This book is an easy reader chapter book for 7-10 year-olds from the Magic Tree House series. In this adventure Jack and Annie receive an assignment to find the secret of happiness from ancient Japan by in their magic tree house. While in Japan Annie and Jack meet a famous poet, Basho, spend most of the book avoiding the samurai, and save the city from a fire with the help of the Cloud Dragon. While many enjoy the Magic Tree House series, I could not get into it. I thought the plot was a little flat and did not seem complete. I did like that it provided accurate historical content at the end of the book; however, most of the historical information was found at the back of the book and not necessarily embedded into the story. I have not read other Magic Tree House, so I am not able to compare it to others in the series. I will say that the themes and vocabulary worked well for its targeted audience. I would try other book in this series before I would pick this one.

I liked it because it was about dragons and the samurai warriors. The guy that Jack and Annie was with trained to be a samurai warrior. When he was a young man, he wanted to be a poetry writer. He is the teacher of the samurai now.
