Product Description

In this Imagination Station adventure Patrick and Beth find themselves as guests in a beautiful castle in 15th century England. Through a series of events, the steward of Lord Darkthorn's castle finds the cousins with three artifacts collected in their previous adventures: the stone, the cup, and the golden tablet. They are accused of being thieves and locked in jail. Beth escapes and discovers the identity of the real thief, leading to a jousting contest with a surprising outcome.
Set during the War of the Roses in England, Revenge of the Red Knight will teach readers about the Crusades, the integrity of knights and the vows they took, and why men would choose to risk their lives to fight for Christianity.

Revenge of the Red Knight, the fourth book in the Imagination Station series, combines the writing talents of Marianne Hering and Paul McCusker for a fun adventure. Cousins Patrick and Beth are thrust into the medieval period by the Imagination Station, a machine built by Mr. Whittaker to help children experience history.

This time and place is home to Albert, Mr. Whittaker's ancestor, whom the kids have been trying to save in the first three books by collecting treasures from elsewhere in history. But the evil Hugh wants the treasures for himself. Patrick and Beth, with the help of Sir Andrew and his squire James, must stop Hugh and protect Albert. The book’s climax is a tense jousting scene where Patrick and Beth must protect Sir Andrew and unveil Hugh’s schemes.

The series is written at a second grade reading level, but that didn't keep me from being pulled into the plot from the beginning. Patrick and Beth's quest to save Albert begins in the first book of the series, Voyage with the Vikings, and it doesn't end with this installment. Even so, the ample prologue enabled me to follow the plot from this book.

Those familiar with the audio drama "Adventures in Odyssey" will find the series intriguing, as the Imagination Station now seems to have a mind of its own. However, kids who have never listened to "Adventures in Odyssey" can understand the story just as easily. The series is patterned off the Magic Tree House books, which also teach kids about history. But, Patrick and Beth know magic doesn't exist. The Imagination Station, its sometimes-faulty programming, and Mr. Whittaker control everything. Every Imagination Station book has a Christian perspective on history and life.

At the end of the book is a puzzle with a code word that unlocks a prize on the series' website, www.theimaginationstation.com. The website also contains a suggested vocabulary list and a digital copy of the book. Kids with sufficient reading skills can enjoy Revenge of the Red Knight and its quality illustrations on their own, or families can read them aloud. Who knows, maybe younger kids will catch their older siblings reading about Patrick and Beth’s adventures. Alexandra Mellen, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    Revenge of the Red Knight is another great book from the Focus on the Family organization. In this book, Beth, and Patrick travel to England during the 15th century as guests in a castle. They take with them the artifacts they retrieved from their earlier adventures and are accused by a steward of being thieves. They are locked up in jail and while there, Beth manages to escape. After she escapes, she finds out who the real thief is and the motive behind his actions. This was another great book in the Imagination Station series and it is full of historical facts about the crusades, knights, and sound Christian values that will captivate young readers.

    In Revenge of the Red Knight, Patrick and Beth get caught up in the middle of Lancasters and Yorks. They, also, run into the scoundrel Master Hugh, who makes an appearance in other Imagination Station books. This isn't one of my favorite stories of the series but still enjoyed it.
    4 stars.

    Revenge of the Red Knight is the fourth book in The Imagination Station series. The Imagination Station is an invention made by Mr. Whittaker from Adventures in Odyssey that takes you through time to different events in history. In this story Patrick and Beth, cousins, are trying to save some priceless treasures and save Albert who is being blamed for stealing them. They end up in medieval times in the middle of a joust and find out that Hugh is the thief. Will Hugh escape? And if so how?

    This book series is a fabulous substitute for the hugely popular Magic Treehouse books. If you are looking for something that can help your kids learn about history but from a Biblical perspective and without the magic this is the series for you. My 9 year old loves them but they are more at a 1st-2nd grade reading level. I highly recommend getting this whole series for your children.

    This book is where Patrick and Beth are accidentally sent by the imagination station to 15th century England. They will cheer on Sir Andrew as he takes on the red knight in a joust of honor. My favorite part is where Patrick and Beth shield the fallen Sir Andrew from harm from the red knight. Master Hugh is a crook who Patrick and Beth will try to catch in future books. He has been stealing Lord Darkthorn's treasures to sell. This is a good book for people who like knights and battle.

    This 4th book in the Imagination Station series takes place during medieval England. Two kids, Beth and Patrick, end up on an adventure where they meet a good knight, a bad knight, and Lord Darkthorn, whose treasures have been stolen. This book is written at a 2nd grade reading level, but even I was captured with the story! Definitely a page turner with a surprise ending. My children and I have read all of the Imagination Station books in order up to Revenge of the Red Knight. You could read them alone, but the story is a continuing one and I highly recommend starting with the 1st in the series, Voyage With the Vikings. As a homeschooling mom, I use these as part of my history curriculum. Yes, historical fiction may be a bit unorthodox, but it grabs my children's interest, real-life characters are featured in these books, and the authors stick as close to possible to real life events as can be expected with 2nd graders historical fiction. This is my favorite series for this age level and I couldn't recommend it more highly!
