My girls love listening to these books. This book and the earlier ones in the series aren't my favorite. The beginning books are written as a series so they continue the stories in the next book. I liked the later books in the series that were just written as stand alone adventure stories. The later books also talked about the read life characters in the stories. This one doesn't say at the end that is was based on any true story at all. I think it was just a great, make believe adventure. I like the stories that were based on true adventures. But all in all, this was still a great fiction story for kids.
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.
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.
