About the book

The key to adventure lies within your imagination! Cousins Patrick and Beth go to the Holy Land in the tenth century BC. Their goal is to get back the ring Hugh stole and return him to 1450s England where he belongs. But troubles await them as soon as they step out of the Imagination Station. First they meet an angry bear and later an angry giant. Set against the backdrop of the David and Goliath story, the cousins learn that having a giant faith is more important than having a giant on your side.

My Thoughts

I was delighted to receive the latest books from the Imagination Station.   My son almost jumped on them when we got the books but I wanted to read them first… *grin*

As with the previous books from the Imagination Station, we travel with the cousins this time during the battle with the Philistines.   The cousins, Patrick and Beth, need to stop the “evil” Master Hugh, get the family ring back to Mr. Whittaker and help to disturb the history.

  They will go try to stop the plan of using 15th century weapons during this 1000 BC encounter and they will befriend David to stand by him to fight Goliath.

The book is a delight to read and will keep you on the hedge from one chapter to another.    Will the cousins succeed?   Can they stop the madness of Master Hugh?  To discover the ending, you will have to read the book!

What I like from the Imagination Station books is that at the end of them the child has to solve a mystery to discover a secret word.   This secret word, once found, will unlock an episode of Adventures in Odyssey that you can upload on your iPod/iPhone and listen while you drive with the kids.   My kids enjoy listening to these episodes when we drive to our swimming lessons in the middle of the week!
