Unfortunately, that encounter came late in the summer, and Lily had to read a number of Magic Tree House books in a short period of time. Whoever selects the curriculum must really love the Magic Tree House series. That's unfortunate, because Lily fucking hates the Magic Tree House series.
I don't blame her. They're bland, boring, insipid, and the worst kind of edutainment.Yoona Park over at yoonanimous said it best in this post, worth reading in its entirety: "Those books are so bad that they will make you start hating things you used to think were cool, like time travel, Morgan Le Fay, and trees."
Cyborg from the Teen Titans hates them too.

I wanted them to be neutralized by Ninjas, but I couldn't find a gif for that.
I really, really hope that the Magic Treehouse is not going to be a big part of this curriculum.
