The Topic of the book is about penguins. 2 kids named Jack and Annie, travel to Antarctica using their Magic Tree House. Once they are there they meet a couple of scientists and stubborn reporters who try to force Jack and Annie to get back home.

Eve of the Emperor Penguins Jack and Annie then find out that they are in Contemporary times and they have a mission to find the Ancient Crown but how would they with all of these people watching them every day and night? They set out to look for the crown when all of the scientists reporters are sleeping. But instead of finding the Crown they find another reporter looking for them. They find a cave and hide in there until the reporter stops looking for them. But it is no use, the reporter finds them in the cave.
