Ission Be like a warriorThat is easier said than done The Roman soldiers are much scarier in person and suspicious of strangers Then a mysterious man riding a black horse gives Jack and Annie some advice to help them on their mission But the man may not be who he seems Will Jack and Annie be good warriors? Can they learn what makes the Roman soldiers so great? And who is the mysterious rider ?Did you know I'm disappointed in this book because I generally love the Magic Tree House books I've been reading them since around 1998 or 1999 when there were only a few of them and I was young enough to be in their target audience Obviously as an adult reader I don't find the plots uite as engaging as I did as a child but I do consider them to be some of the best books out there at that reading level I'm a children's librarian and I often recommend these books to 2nd or 3rd graders But this book has a factual error that really bothers me The story has Jack and Annie visiting a Roman war camp in the year 172 under Emporer Marcus Aurelius In fact Aurelius is a major character in the story and he's the one who specifies the year He's amazed when Jack and Annie show him a Roman coin dated 173 But our system for numbering the years didn't exist until the 6th century 2nd century Romans would have identified the year by the name of the consuls 172 was Year of the Consulship of Scipio and Maximus and 173 was Year of the Consulship of Severus and Pompeianus Less freuently the Romans did use numbers for their years but their numbering system started at the estimated year of the founding of Rome So 172 is 925 Ab urbe condita and 173 is 926 Ab urbe condita And as far as the coin goes 2nd century Roman coins didn't have the date on them anyway This is maybe a little nitpicky for a 2nd3rd grade level chapter book But one of the things that makes this series so great is that it brings history alive for kids The stories send believable likable modern day protagonists on time travel adventures and the settings are generally well researched and accurate Although the stories are unrealistic on a couple levels the fantasy setting the lack of language barriers the respect that most of the adults have for the child protagonists etc the actual historical facts presented are generally reliable and a child reader is going to unuestioningly trust them I'm not sure whether this misuse of the date is a matter of sloppy research or if the author and editor just didn't feel that it matters but either way I feel that it detracts a lot from the book's uality as a historical fiction adventure My three star rating is because the plot is still interesting and the overall writing uality is still decent for the relatively low reading level
