Jack Smith is the main protagonist of the book series Magic Tree House. He is the brother of Annie.

Physical Appearance

Jack has short dark brown hair and wears glasses. He normally wears a T-shirt and blue jeans and sneakers though starting in Vacation Under the Volcano Morgan's magic often changes this, though not always. He also carries a backpack that occasionally gets changed by magic into other things as well.


Jack is a bit timid and often worries about their missions and what they have to do. He likes focusing on reading about the place and taking notes. He is also very intelligent and can be courageous which often comes out in moments of need such as when he saved Teddy from the Raven King by casting a spell to turn him into a baby raven, risking his life to save a young Lakota boy from a stampede and helping rescue ten Jewish orphans from behind enemy lines during World War II. In Super Edition #1 he has learned how to drive an old truck though he lacked confidence in it due to a lack of experience and the situation. However, he performed admirably and was able to fool the Nazis into believing he was just another delivery driver despite his young age just by being confident. He also displays a growing crush on the selkie Kathleen. He is also compassionate as shown by his actions during the books such as helping free Morgan le Fay and Teddy from their spells and instead of hurting the Raven King when he defeated him, giving him what he truly wanted: a life as a raven so he could fly. Jack explained that he actually felt sorry for their foe and wanted to help and did as the Raven King now has a chance to live the life he truly wanted. When Jack and Annie have used magic, Jack has proven adept at it, using the various magical instruments given to them from the enchanted hazel twig, Teddy and Kathleen's spellbook, the Wand of Dianthus and its various forms and the mist from Avalon well and thoughtfully. Jack is very protective of his sister and can be a bit exasperated when she gets them into trouble and takes things too lightly.
