** Actually, the dinosaurs featured in the first book are all likely to be featherless (or semi-feathered in the case of ''T. rex''). The real clincher is that ''Pteranodon'' was shown living in a time millions of years after its extinction.

[[WMG: Jack and Annie are descended from a wizard from Camelot.]]
They have magical abilities, and the treehouse landing in their neighborhood may be due to a family connection.



Arthur likely has a lost successor, and as common in epic fantasy, the hero often gets the princess. Kathleen has dark, curly hair, a mix of Arthur's hair color and Guinevere's hair structure. She also is a poor weaver, implying her hands aren't used to the work. "Winter of the Ice Wizard" reveals humans can take on fey aspects if they live with them for a while, explaining Kathleen's selkie abilities.

abilities. The Diamond of Destiny lights up in Jack's hands, and in "Shadow of the Shark," he is offered the role of Mayan king, possibly foreshadowing him succeeding Arthur.



In some versions of King Arthur, Merlin is picky over Arthur's choice of a queen, doubting Guinevere. In The Magic Treehouse, Merlin takes an interest in Annie, giving her powerful tools such as the stardust she uses in "Balto of the Blue Dawn." Annie also has displayed a fondness for fairytales throughout the series.

That would also explain why, for example, in ''Eve of the Emperor Penguin'', no one made a big fuss on the news about two children suddenly showing up on an Antarctic research base: because they only traveled into the book, not within their own world. This also prevents anyone using the treehouse from changing their own timeline or, even worse, committing a GrandfatherParadox.

[[WMG: The Dark Wizard of Mordred is Sir Meleagant.]]
Sir Meleagant captured Guinevere to rid Camelot of its joy, similar to how the Dark Wizard of Mordred enchanted Camelot in "Christmas in Camelot." The Dark Wizard being Meleagant would also allow him to appear without risking confusion with the Green Knight. The Dark Wizard will appear soon, seeing as Jack and Annie have faced many of his supporters already.

[[WMG: Kathleen is a Pendragon.]]
Arthur likely has a lost successor, and as common in epic fantasy, the hero often gets the princess. Kathleen has dark, curly hair, a mix of Arthur's hair color and Guinevere's hair structure. She also is a poor weaver, implying her hands aren't used to the work. "Winter of the Ice Wizard" reveals humans can take on fey aspects if they live with them for a while, explaining Kathleen's selkie abilities.

[[WMG: Or, Annie is a "future" Pendragon.]]
In some versions of King Arthur, Merlin is picky over Arthur's choice of a queen, doubting Guinevere. In The Magic Treehouse, Merlin takes an interest in Annie, giving her powerful tools such as the stardust she uses in "Balto of the Blue Dawn." Annie also has displayed a fondness for fairytales throughout the series.

Time travel just kind of runs in this family. We do meet Marty's kids in Back to the Future Part II, but Marty did have two siblings. Jack and Annie's mom could be Marty's sister, or his brother could be their dad.

Upon first meeting Morgan, Jack says "They said you were a witch.", indicating that tales with a negative portrayal of Morgan exist in this world, and are widespread enough that they're in books read by 8-year-olds. However, from what we've seen in the series, we know that Morgan is actually a BigGood who has helped save Camelot on several occasions and organized the recovery of several powerful artifacts like the Diamond of Destiny and the Wand of Dianthus that might otherwise have fallen into the wrong hands. As ''Blizzard of the Blue Moon'' showed, some evil wizards are capable of traveling to the mundane world's past, so it's possible that one of them organized a SmearCampaign against Morgan out of spite. (And/or to encourage people who encountered her or people who claimed to work for her to refuse help. Obviously it didn't work, as Jack and Annie usually have very little trouble finding help when they need it.
