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.

Formerly numbered as Magic Tree House #41, the title of this book is now Magic Tree House Merlin Mission #13: Moonlight on the Magic Flute.

I am a music teacher. This book was recommended to me by one of my piano students. I am now recommending it to all of my other piano students. It is a fun way for children to learn about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart! I enjoyed reading it and I know that my students will enjoy it too!

We began reading the Magic Tree House Series when my son was a first grader. Now, he's finished third grade and continues to wait for the next Jack and Annie. This last one followed in the tradition of a good stories with a hook into a historical event or character. Since reading about Mozart in Jack and Annie, he has also learned more about the rest of his life and music.

Mary Pope Osborne never disappoints her readers. Using historical figures such as Mozart brings the past alive.

Another great adventure for Jack and Annie. My children read the Magic Tree House series since first grade and they love every single book. Good language, interesting facts, magic and adventure. A good book for grades 1-4, depending on reading ability.

Three of these books in the series were purchased for my niece and nephew. The books are absolutely a joy to read. They are also very informative and educational. The illustrations are most attractive to readers of all ages. Best of all, they encourage you to read from cover to cover. That is the best reason to choose this series!

This story is about when the magic tree house whisks jack and annie back in time and they have to find Mozart, the music artist. But trouble happens when Wolfie Mozart lets loose the animals from the zoo. Will they find the secret to bring happiness to everyone? I recommend this book for people who are really interested in Mozart and music.

Imagine that you and your brother have a time traveling tree house and are entrusted with the mission of finding an artist who will bring true happiness to millions of people. In book #41 of the Magic Tree House series, Annie and Jack go back in time to the Schonbrunn Palace of Empress Maria Theresa in October of 1762. Wearing opulent court clothing and having to quickly learn court protocol, Annie and Jack are detained from finding this brilliant artist by a precocious boy named Wolfie and his sister, Nan. When Wolfie comes up missing, the trio searches for him in the palace gardens encountering the royal zoo animals running free! Jack and Annie discover the magic of the flute and the true artist who was right there all the time. Children familiar with this series will enjoy the adventure and trouble caused by the child prodigy, Mozart. Black and white illustrations help children visualize this historical era. Additional facts about Mozart are included at the end of the story furthering knowledge about his life and times. Extension activities in the classroom might include listening to his music, particularly from the opera, The Magic Flute. Highly recommended for children in Grades 2-4.

Jack and Annie are off on another Magic Treehouse Merlin Mission. They go to a ball in Austria to help a famous artist. They meet a little boy named Wolfie. Jack thinks he is annoying, but Annie makes Jack treat him nice anyway. Later that evening, they find out Wolfie is really the famous musician Wolfgang Amedeus Mozart. They help him find his love of music again.The Magic Treehouse books are really special to me. My son and I use to take turns reading a chapter. So he could get his AR points. I think these are good books for children to visit different times in history and places without never leaving their bedrooms.In the classroom, we would talk about famous people and places we want to visit. Then I would have them draw a picture of themselves visiting that place or meeting that person. Then they would stand up in front of the class and tell about their adventure.

Jack and Annie went to a fancy party in long time ago,but they don't know what to do in the party before. This book is good for people that likes history, and this book tells you about how they celebrate party in long time ago.
