[Waiting on Wednesday] Soccer on Sunday (Magic Tree House, #52) by Mary Pope Osborne

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that
Spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.

My choice for this week is Soccer on Sunday (Magic Tree House, #52) by Mary Pope Osborne, which will be released May 27th, 2014 by Random House Books for Young Readers. Here's the blurb:
Just in time for the 2014 Fifa World Cup, Magic Tree House #52: Soccer on Sunday will take Jack and Annie to a soccer field in Mexico where they must find the final secret of greatness for Merlin. On the field, they'll meet a young soccer player who dreams of one day playing in the World Cup just like his hero, the great Brazilian soccer player, Pelé!
 I'm a bit behind on the Magic Tree House series; I still need to get to Hurry up, Houdini! and High Time for Heroes before I'll tackle this one, but I'm slowly rereading the series, so hopefully I'll pick it up some time before the end of 2014.

As usual, Soccer on Sunday has a Magic Tree House Fact Tracker nonfiction companion, but I'll talk about that next week.
