Catch the Wave!
That’s what Jack and Annie do when the Magic Tree House whisks them back to a Hawaiian island of long ago.  They learn how to surf and have a great time – until strange things start happening.  Jack and Annie soon discover the cause: A tidal wave is  headed their way!  Can they help save their new friends in time?

My Review:  I love these stories reading along with my nephew this summer.  I like that there is always some historical or cultural aspect.  Here they Hawaiians are still living in traditional wasys.  While they are there they learn to surf  and hula.  The unthinkable happens when a tsunami comes along, but the quick modern thinking of the kids saves the day.
