The magic tree house has reappeared.  It hadn't been there in quite some time.  Jack and Annie are so excited about starting a new adventure.  You see, the tree house transports them to different places and times.  When they climb into the tree house, they find an invitation to spend Christmas in Camelot!  How exciting!  But, when they arrive, they find that things are very different now than the last time they visited.  A spell has been cast over Camelot that has taken the joy out of the kingdom.   Although three knights have been sent into the Otherworld to find the cauldron of the Water of Memory and Imagination.  A cup of water would restore Camelot's joy.  Annie and Jack are selected for the task.  If three brave knights have already failed, how can two children accomplish this task?
