Product Description

The adventure continues! Join cousins Beth and Patrick as they travel through time to fifth-century Rome to locate a missing silver cup. After returning to Whit's after finding the Viking sunstone, another letter is left this time requesting a silver cup that belongs to a monk. If found, this cup may prevent the mysterious Albert from being imprisoned.
Emperor Honorius is hosting a gladiator battle at the Roman Colosseum in honor of a war victory. Beth attends as a slave and Patrick attends as a monk's apprentice, until he is taken prisoner and sent to fight in the arena. While in Rome, the cousins meet Telemachus, a monk that believes fighting is wrong and who is willing to give up his life to stop the killing.
When Beth and Patrick find the cup and return to their time, a new letter is waiting for them with information on the mysterious Albert's fate.

    Attack at the Arena is the second book of the Imagination Station series. I read this book with my niece and nephew and not only did they love it, but I felt good about it because it uses a captivating story to teach sound Biblical values. In this book, Mr. Whittaker and cousins Beth and Patrick get a letter from the Imagination Station. This time, they go to ancient Rome including the arena to find the missing silver cup belonging to a monk. This book is full of adventure that will appeal to young readers and valuable lessons that Christian parents will want their children taken into heart. I also appreciated the many facts of ancient Rome because it gave my niece and nephew an appreciation for what they have and how they live. Once again, Focus on the Family provides a great tool for parents to provide to their children that will impart valuable Christian principles to its users.

    Attack at the Arena is the second in the Imagination Station Series. This is a great series for kids ages 7 and up. They are a great alternative to the Magic Tree House books. I love that we can do a whole study off of them in school. My son recently read this book and here is his synopsis.

    First Beth and Patrick went to Whit’s End to see Mr. Whitaker. Then Mr. Whitaker tells them they have another adventure to do. They go on the adventure in the Imagination Station. They push the red button which starts up the Imagination Station. After they push the button and get out they find themselves in the sand. They turn around and see a tiger. They see a man by a door. The tiger gets in the running position but doesn’t run. Patrick and Beth run to the man by the door. Then the tiger starts to run after them. Patrick and Beth reach the door. They go inside. They find themselves in the arena. The soldiers catch them cause they think they are slaves. One soldier picked up Beth on his shoulder. Four other soldiers get Patrick. The soldiers and Patrick start going out of the arena. A Monk says, “I’ve been looking for you.” The soldiers let Patrick go with the Monk. then Patrick and the monk go on a walk. Patrick sees a cave. Patrick says, “Is that your house?” The monk says, “Yes, that is where I stay.” They went into the cave. They sat down and cooked a chicken. They ate the chicken. Patrick went to sleep after that. Beth finds herself in a room. A man walks in and says, “Do you like birds?” Beth says “Kind of.” Good. I have some birds you can feed. What’s your name?” said the man. “My name is Beth,” said Beth. He was some kind of man that sat on the throne. He was a young man. The young man leads Beth to a room full of birds. She feeds them. They young man leads Beth to a cage and puts some of the birds in it. Patrick and the monk go to the arena. They go into the arena to find Beth. They get thrown into a place where the people are forced to play the games. The games are people trying to stay alive fighting the lions, tigers, and bears. The monk tries to find a seat when Patrick goes tot he place where the men get ready to fight. Patrick sees Beth in a cage of birds. They send the lions, tigers, and bears into the middle of the arena. The soldiers send out the men to fight the animals. Patrick escapes out of the arena. The soldiers send out the men to fight the animals. Patrick escapes out of the arena. Patrick goes to the cage of birds. He gets Beth out. The games are done. Beth and Patrick leave the arena. They find the imagination stations when they get out of the arena and go back to Whit’s End.

    This is a great book to help introduce yoru children to persecution. I can’t recommend these books highly enough!

    This book is about Patrick and Beth's second mission to save Albert. In this story Patrick and Beth go to Ancient Rome. I like this book because it has Roman History and facts. My favorite part is where Aldric throws Patrick to the beam holding the nets to protect the emperor. I think it's a good book for kids between ages 8-11. Joshua, age 10

    I purchased this book and book #1 for my son and he really likes them. He has asked me to purchase more for him. They are a good read and not too difficult for his age/reading ability. He loves the facts and history contained in them and I love that it is faith based. There are not many faith based series for boys of this age. We will definitely be buying more.
