Rated 3 out of 5 by from Soccer on Sunday (Magic Tree House "Merlin Missions" #52) In this whirlwind of an adventure, the magic tree house takes Jack and Annie to Mexico City, during the 1970's World Cup finals. Jack and Annie have tickets to the World Cup, which is between Brazil and Italy, but they also have something important to accomplish. During this adventure, Jack and Annie must find a secret, the fourth secret to greatness to be exact. However, once Jack and Annie reach the World Cup location, they are so overwhelmed by the huge crowds and are overcome with confusion of how to actually get to the soccer stadium. Without help from Roberto, a local boy, Jack and Annie may have never found the stadium in time to watch the game, but with his help they make it there with time to spare and in return, Jack trades his front row ticket with Roberto's ticket, which ends up being so high he can barely see the stadium. After the game is over, Jack and Annie join an impromptu game of soccer and it is there that they discover their fourth word in their search for greatness! Join Jack and Annie as they travel to watch the great soccer legend Pele in the World Cup and help them find the fourth word in the secret of greatness!
