Vacation Under the Volcano is the thirteenth installment to the Magic Tree House series. The book is preceded by Polar Bears Past Bedtime and succeeded by Day of the Dragon King. It was written by Mary Pope Osborne and illustrated by Sal Murdocca.


The magic tree house takes Jack and Annie to ancient Pompeii just as Mt. Vesuvius is about to erupt, and they must find a Roman scroll before everything is covered with burning ash.
