Magic Tree House #12: Polar Bears Past Bedtimeby Mary Pope Osborne
Synopses & Reviews
The Magic Tree House transports Jack and Annie to the freezing Arctic. There, they must solve the final riddle to become master librarians. But it's not going to be easy — especially when they have cracking ice, a seal hunter, and a prodigious polar bear to deal with. Will they be able to solve the riddle before they get iced themselves?
Books 9–12 of the New York Times bestselling Magic Tree House series boxed together for the first time!
These four titles are the perfect gift for a Magic Tree House fan or any child who loves a good adventure. Parents, teachers, and librarians hail the chapter-book series as a tool to promote reading, as even the most reluctant readers want to know where the Magic Tree House will take the brother-and-sister team next.
In books 9–12, Morgan le Fay, the magical librarian of Camelot, challenges Jack and Annie to find the answers to four riddles. To do so, they must travel under the sea and to the Wild West, the African plains, and the frozen Arctic. It’s a difficult and dangerous task, but if Jack and Annie succeed, they will become Master Librarians!
Books in this set include: Dolphins at Daybreak (#9), Ghost Town at Sundown (#10), Lions at Lunchtime (#11), and Polar Bears Past Bedtime (#12).

About the Author
Mary Pope Osborne grew up in the military, and by the time she was 15 had lived in Oklahoma, Austria, Florida, and four different army posts in Virginia and North Carolina. After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the early 1970s, Mary traveled all over Europe, and spent the first six weeks of her trip living in a cave on the island of Crete. She then joined up with a group of European young people and traveled in rickety vans through sixteen Asian countries, including Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Nepal. She was a bartender, an acting teacher, a waitress, a travel agent, a window dresser, and a medical assistant — all before becoming an author! Now she is the author of many highly acclaimed picture books, early chapter books, middle-grade biographies, and young adult novels. In February 1993, Mary was elected the 27th president of the Author's Guild, the oldest, most established organization for writers in the United States.
Mary her husband Will split their time between an apartment in Greenwich Village, New York, and a cabin in Pennsylvania. They own a terrier named Bailey, who sleeps on the top of Mary's desk every day while she writes!
