Imagination Station Book 5 & 6 review & giveaway

My girls were so excited to receive books number 5 & 6 of the Imagination Station Series to review. Amber was sitting beside me when I opened my email and she saw the invitation to participate in the Blog Tour. Her reply was "Yes, Yes, tell her we want them!"

We reviewed book number 3, Peril in the Palace and book number 4, Revenge of the Red Knight this past summer. We enjoyed them so much that we went out and bought book number 1, Voyage of the Vikings and book number 2, Attack at the Arena.

 In Showdown with the Shepherd Patrick and Beth take us back to the Holy Land in 1000 BC. Their goal is to find Master Hugh to get the Whittaker family ring back & take Hugh back to England in 1450. Of course this isn't easy. As soon as they are out of the Imagination Station they run into an angry bear & later an angry giant. Can you guess who the giant is? If you guessed Goliath you are right. Patrick and Beth learn that it is better to have giant faith rather than having a giant on their side while they are trying to keep Hugh from changing history.



Problems in Plymouth brings us to Plymouth Colony in 1621. Here Patrick and Beth are having trouble finding Hugh but the encounter a lost pilgrim boy, stolen corn, and natives on the warpath. Of course Hugh is causing problems and they must find him before he changes American History and the first Thanksgiving turns into a war.

Alaina asked me today if we could stop while we are out and buy some more of these books. Well I had to tell her the the next two will not be released until January & May. But here is a sneak peak of book 7 & 8.


Paul McCusker is the director for the Imagination Station series. He has been writing since he was a boy and is best known for writing over 300 episodes for Adventure in Odyssey. He is now the director of Creative Content at Focus on the Family. Marianne Hering is the writer for the series and she has more than a dozen children's fiction books and more than 40 bible phonics readers. She is now a general book editor for Focus on the Family. Brock D. Eastman is the Product Marketing Manager for Focus on the Family co-wrote Showdown with the Shepherd. His dad got him hooked on Adventures in Odyssey as a boy. Marshal Younger wrote with Marianne Hering on Problems in Plymouth and has written over 100 Odyssey audio dramas and the children's book series, Kidsboro.
