Awe! But really, when is it not a perfect time for pandas?

50. “Midnight On The Moon”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Nothing to be terrified about here. The moon is fricking awesome.

49. “High Tide In Hawaii”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

“Kowabunga!!!!!!” — Jack & Annie, probably.

48. “Night Of The New Magicians”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Jack’s most likely weighing down the back of the bike because he ate too much cheese at dinner. But PARIS.

47. “Abe Lincoln At Last!”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Chilling with Honest Abe? Right on, Jack & Annie!

46. “Revolutionary War On Wednesday”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Crossing the Delaware with Washington is the most badass Hump Day EVER.

45. “Season Of The Sandstorms”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

The only “scary” thing is how Jack has five carpets on his camel and Annie only has one.

44. “Hour Of The Olympics”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Solid destination choice. The Olympics are always GOLD.

43. “Dogs In The Dead Of Night”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Lucky for Jack & Annie, the dog looks terrified of them and not the other way around.

42. “Carnival At Candlelight”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Alright, so Jack & Annie are there to save Venice from a flood. But the best way to celebrate Carnevale is on the back of a golden flying lion, right?

41. “Blizzard Of The Blue Moon”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Because who hasn’t ridden a magical unicorn through Central Park? Downside: Jack & Annie encounter two evil sorcerers-in-training.

40. “Thanksgiving On Thursday”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

The only thing Jack & Annie have to be scared of is a food coma after the big meal.

39. “Civil War On Sunday”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Here’s where things get a little frightening. Brilliant plan, helping out the wounded soldier who only has a drum for a weapon.

38. “Stage Fright On A Summer Night”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Performing in front of an audience is a scary thing, as are the outfits in Elizabethan England.

37. “Eve Of The Emperor Penguin”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

More surprising than scary. Who knew wild penguins wore jewel-encrusted crowns?

36. “Hurry Up, Houdini!”

Random House / Via overstock.com

Unless you’re afraid of flying rabbits, doves, or oversized tuxedoes, there isn’t much to be terrified of here.

35. “Polar Bears Past Bedtime”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Everyone knows you should never hang out with polar bears unless they are offering you a Coca-Cola.

34. “High Time For Heroes”

Random House / Via amazon.com

Perhaps more disconcerting than the fact Jack is hanging off a cliff is the fact he forgot to put on shoes.

33. “Leprechaun In The Late Winter”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Not sure why they are so scared of a little Irish dude playing a flute, but then again, this is a series about a time-traveling treehouse.

32. “Stallion By Starlight”

Random House / Via waterstones.com

Better watch out for the Dark Horse, Jack & Annie.

31. “Christmas In Camelot”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

What, was the red cape only available in size XXXXXXXL?

30. “The Knight At Dawn”

Random House / Via genesisartsandbooks.com

If you’re going to battle, it may as well be with the knight whose sword is bigger than either of you.

29. “Tonight On The Titanic”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

The real question is did Jack & Annie bump into Jack or Rose?

28. “Dolphins At Daybreak”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Annie is terrified, and rightfully so. That dolphin looks like it’s about to make a meal out of her.

27. “Summer Of The Sea Serpent”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Alright, here we go. If you’re going to face a gigantic, man-eating sea serpent, at least have Merlin’s Sword of Light when you do it.

26. “Dark Day In The Deep Sea”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

You should be free to go for a swim without having to worry about a gigantic octopus. And let’s not even talk about how Jack & Annie are in the middle of the ocean WITHOUT BATHING SUITS ON.

25. “Day Of The Dragon King”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Hopefully before escaping his clutches Jack & Annie introduced the Dragon King to a nail clipper.

24. “Buffalo Before Breakfast”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

At least Jack & Annie look stylish while they’re run down by the stampeding, thousand-pound wild animal.

23. “Good Morning, Gorillas”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Only made less terrifying by the hilarious gorilla photobombing in the background.

22. “A Good Night For Ghosts”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Spoiler Alert: It’s NEVER a good night for ghosts.

21. “Dragon Of The Red Dawn”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Dragons are ALWAYS scary, but for a pair of kids facing a fire-breathing beast, Jack & Annie look remarkably composed. Maybe it is because they are on the hunt for the four secrets of happiness for Merlin and Morgan le Fay?

20. “Ghost Town At Sundown”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Who comes to a gunfight without any guns? Annie looks like she just pooped her pants. Love the cowgirl boots though.

19. “A Ghost Tale For Christmas”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

SCARIEST. CHRISTMAS. EVER.

18. “Monday With A Mad Genius”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Leave it to da Vinci. Flying sounds awesome, but of course Jack & Annie choose the option where they sprout giant bird wings.

17. “Viking Ships At Sunrise”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

You know you’re headed in the wrong direction when the boat looks as scared as you do. Also, who is steering? Do these two know anything about how boats work?

16. “Moonlight On The Magic Flute”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Hanging out with Mozart sounds fun until you have to use a magic flute that attracts leopards and bears looking to turn you into dinner. And HOT DAMN check out those outfits.

15. “Dingoes At Dinnertime”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Rabid dingoes are scary enough, but then Jack & Annie find out their dog was an enchanted human all along. Um, what?

14. “Winter Of The Ice Wizard”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Otherwise known as “Jack & Annie vs. Evil Santa And His Rabid Wolves.”

13. “Haunted Castle On Hallows Eve”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Usually a fun Halloween involves copious amounts of candy. Not for Jack & Annie, who feel the need to explore a creepy, decrepit haunted castle. On the bright side, the two are able to perform some magic of their own.

12. “Night Of The Ninja”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Oh great, the ninja has one sword for Jack and one for Annie. This looks like it will end well.

11. “A Crazy Day With Cobras”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

As opposed to a normal day with cobras.

10. “Earthquake In The Early Morning”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Jeez, can these kids do anything right? A trip to San Francisco sounds nice in theory, but nope, they have to go when a MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE hits the city.

9. “Twister On Tuesday”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Facing a tornado is scary. Facing a tornado in these outfits is downright terrifying.

8. “Tigers At Twilight”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

What is it with these two? You would think if you had a magic treehouse you would want to go to the beach, but nope, it’s off to the jungles of India with the man-eating tigers.

7. “Vacation Under The Volcano”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Serious question: Who the hell takes a vacation under an active volcano? Jack & Annie should be banned from traveling forever.

6. “Lions At Lunchtime”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

“Let’s disturb the pack of hungry lions for no reason at all” — said no one, ever. Seriously, do these kids have a death wish?

5. “Pirates Past Noon”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

At this point, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Jack stops to take off his shoes so he doesn’t get sand in them WHILE THERE IS A GANG OF BLOODTHIRSTY PIRATES CHASING THEM.

4. “Sunset Of The Sabertooth”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

OK, so the sabertooth tiger is downright terrifying on its own. BUT WHOSE GENIUS IDEA WAS IT TO NOT WEAR PANTS IN THE ICE AGE?

3. “Afternoon On The Amazon”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

Giant, man-eating reptile? Check. Whitewater rapids? Check. Two kids in a canoe without paddles? Check. This has “disaster” written all over it — and it’s all for a magical mango.

2. “Mummies In The Morning”

Random House / Via mthclassroomadventures.org

“Annie, let’s wake up the zombie carcass that has been asleep for 3,000 years and see what happens!”

“Brilliant idea Jack! What could possibly go wrong?”

1. “Dinosaurs Before Dark”

Random House / Via rainbowresource.com

First book in the series, and Jack is riding the flying, man-eating dinosaur. WTF IS WRONG WITH THESE KIDS?!?!
