Review: Time travel, Abraham Lincoln, a magic tree house and more! Abe Lincoln At Last! by Marry Pope Osborn is a good book. It will make you want to read to the whole Magic Tree House series. This is book 41 in the Magic Tree House series.

In the start of the book, Jack and Annie wake up and go directly to the magic tree house from where they are whisked away to the White House where they meet brothers Willie and Tad. Willie and Tad take Jack and Annie to see Abraham Lincoln, but Jack and Annie are suddenly teleported away to the woods where they meet an orphan named Sam. Sam is tragically hit by a horse and gets a concussion. Will Jack and Annie help Sam or will they go try to meet Abraham Lincoln? Find out by reading Abe Lincoln At Last!.

Abe Lincoln At Last! deserves 3.5 out of 5 top hats. Kids 2nd through 3rd grade would love this book. The words are easy to read, so younger kids will have an easy time reading the book. There are no swearing words so that is a plus for parents who are looking for an age appropriate book. The book is quick read for anyone 9 and older. There is a lot of action in the book so look forward to that. On the downside though, there is very little humor. To somewhat understand the beginning, you need to read books 40 and 39. Overall, Abe Lincoln At Last! is a good book. It deserves 3.5 out of 5 top hats and is great for long car trips, to read if you have nothing else to read and is great for book reviews.
