Book Review: Revenge of the Red Knight

Is your young reader looking for something exciting to curl up with this summer?  If so, the Imagination Station may be just the series for him or her.  My nine year old daughter and I have had the pleasure of reviewing the first four books in this series and so far we have been pleased with the adventure and engaging storytelling packed into each book in the series.

The latest book in this series is Revenge of the Red Knight.  In this series, Patrick and Beth, the main characters of the book, are transported directly from thirteenth century China to England where they are dropped off in the middle of the War of the Roses.  While in England, the children finally meet up with the mysterious Albert, who happens to be an ancestor to Mr. Whittaker, the inventor of the Imagination Station.

As with the other books in the series the children find themselves in an action packed situation.  The story is suspenseful, mysterious and full of adventure.  Young readers will be kept on the edge of their seats as they read this book as well as the others in the series.

Both my nine year old and I liken this series to the Magic Tree House series.  Both series take the children on an adventure through time.  The storyline for the Imagination Station series is appropriate for ages 7 and up.  I'd say it's best for children in second through fourth grade.

At the end of this book, and all of the Imagination Station books, children will find an activity puzzle pertaining to the story.  They can also go online and enter the secret word for the story (found by completing the puzzle) and get a reward.

I was provided with a complimentary review copy of Revenge of the Red Knight by the publisher, Tyndale House, in exchange for my honest review.

Next week I will be hosting a giveaway of books three and four of the Imagination Station series.  Check back to enter for a chance to win these great books for the young reader in your life.
