As usual the Magic Tree House doesn’t disappoint.  Jack and Annie are sent to Mexico during the 1970 World Cup soccer game to discover the secret of greatness.  Merlin has sent them on another mission.  They meet a charming local boy name Roberto who is a soccer fanatic.  He shows them to the way to the stadium.  It’s Roberto’s birthday and his family has bought him a ticket to the game even though his family can’t afford for the rest of them to go. 

It proves to be an exciting adventure of friendship, soccer excitement and the key to discovering your greatness.  You expected the kids to actually be able to meet a famous soccer player and yet she weaves the story perfectly and still helps them accomplish their mission.
