Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2006 Spring)
Siblings Jack and Annie travel on yet another Merlin Mission, this time back twelve hundred years to Baghdad's golden age so that they can deliver a book of Aristotle's writings to the caliph. Osborne often enlists stock writing ("her shocked gaze"; "'But--how--what?' stammered Jack") that's unworthy of her detail-rich story, which is enhanced by Murdocca's dramatic black-and-white art.
