Summary Jack and Annie have to save Penny the penguin by finding the emerald rose. They have to go back in history to 1600 India, to see Shah Jahãn at his home called the Red Fort. They get the emerald rose in return for giving Shah Jahãn Jack’s stories on past adventures. Jack and Annie go to a parade and see an elephant named Morning Breeze get freed. Jack and Annie loose the emerald rose in a cobra’s nest and Morning Breeze helps them get it back. In the end, Shah Jahãn tells Jack and Annie about how much he loved his wife. He built her a tomb of marble and called it the Taj Mahal. Recommendation I recommend this book because it’s exciting and creative. The best part was when Jack and Annie drank a potion that made them shrink to get the emerald rose.
