Odyssey Meets the War of the Roses
Beth and Patrick finally receive some answers to the mystery which has had them chasing treasure across time and across the globe.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
The historical setting is just before the war of the roses, and references are made to the House of Lancaster and the House of York. This is how the book gets its title - from the red and white roses.
As always with this series, I recommend some extra reading/research before just handing these book over to young readers to ensure that they understand the historical period they are being introduced to. In the course of the narrative, it can be difficult for them to discern the fictional characters from the historical ones.
Otherwise a highly enjoyable chapter book, suitable for ages 6+. I always look forward to reading them.

Through the story children can experience what it would have been like to live in the time of knights and castles.
My children enjoy the imagination station books and can't wait to get their hands on Revenge of the Red Knight. I like the books because they mix history, Christian values, and adventure in a child friendly story. As with the other books there is a secret word puzzle at the back of the book which is a fun reading comprehension exercise. The secret word is a code which your child can enter at TheImaginationStation dot com to receive a prize.
I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in order to write this review and have shared my honest opinion.
