Book Review: Peril in the Palace

My nine year old daughter and I recently had the opportunity to review two new books in the Imagination Station series.  One of the books was Peril in the Palace which is the third book in the series.  As with the first two books, this book did not disappoint.

The Imagination Station series takes young readers on adventure after adventure with the young main characters Beth and Patrick.  In Peril in the Palace, the children are transported by the Imagination Station to China in the year 1271 on a mission to obtain a golden tablet of Kublai Khan.  On their adventure, the children not only encounter danger and excitement, but they also help to spread the message of Christianity.

The story is filled with suspense and will certainly appeal to young readers who are fans of the Magic Tree House series of books.  Because the story has both male and female lead characters, the book will appeal to all children.

My nine year old thinks this series of books is fun even if it is below her reading level.  I would suggest this book for any young reader who is ready to foray into the world of chapter books.  The story is engaging and the print is large.  The book contains several nicely done illustrations which are spread throughout the book.

As a parent, one of the things I like the most about this series is activity at the end of the book.  The activity is a nice way to reinforce what your child has just read.  There is also an online component where children may go and enter the secret word or phrase from the book to receive a prize.

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

Next week I will be hosting a giveaway of books 3 and 4 of the Imagination Station Series.  Be sure to check back for your chance to win these books.
