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.
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!
Beth and Patrick are dropped into 15th century England to deliver the three artifacts they collected to rescue a friend. During their whirlwind tour they visit a castle, are accused of being thieves, thrown in jail, identify the real thief, watch a jousting contest and since they taking a journey in the imagination station don't hang around long.
