Video Clip: Mary Pope Osborne Interview
The “Magic Tree House” series has been a staple in children’s libraries since it debuted with “Dinosaurs Before Dark” in 1992. 38 books later it’s still chuggin, adding new fans every year. My only complaint? They don’t sell these books with kevlar bindings – they get a ton of circs y’all. Click the logo below to watch a recent interview with Mary and her sister (and “Magic Tree House Research Guide” author) Natalie Pope Osborne. Kevlar bindings, I say.
