In Revenge of the Red Knight, Patrick and Beth get caught up in the middle of Lancasters and Yorks. They, also, run into the scoundrel, who makes an appearance in other Imagination Station books. This isn't one of my favorite stories of the series but still enjoyed it.

This book is where Patrick and Beth are accidentally sent by the imagination station to 15th century England. They will cheer on Sir Andrew as he takes on the red knight in a joust of honor. My favorite part is where Patrick and Beth shield the fallen Sir Andrew from harm from the red knight. Master Hugh is a crook who Patrick and Beth will try to catch in future books. He has been stealing Lord Darkthorn's treasures to sell. This is a good book for people who like knights and battleWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This 4th book in the Imagination Station series takes place during medieval England. Two kids, Beth and Patrick, end up on an adventure where they meet a good knight, a bad knight, and Lord Darkthorn, whose treasures have been stolen. This book is written at a 2nd grade reading level, but even I was captured with the story! Definitely a page turner with a surprise ending. My children and I have read all of the Imagination Station books in order up to Revenge of the Red Knight. You could read them alone, but the story is a continuing one and I highly recommend starting with the 1st in the series, Voyage With the Vikings. As a homeschooling mom, I use these as part of my history curriculum. Yes, historical fiction may be a bit unorthodox, but it grabs my children's interest, real-life characters are featured in these books, and the authors stick as close to possible to real life events as can be expected with 2nd graders historical fiction. This is my favorite series for this age level and I couldn't recommend it more highly!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Exciting and Fun. The kids are transported to the time of the knights, where they meet the challenges admirably. The castle is described beautifully, and the adventures are thrilling. This series is age appropriate and very well done.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The Imagination Station book 4, Revenge of the Red Knight By Marianne
Hering, Paul McCusker is a great read. The series follows cousins
Patrick and Beth in their various adventures in the imagination station.
The series is written for younger readers but people of all ages will
love the christian values it teaches and enjoy the story.

once again, Imagination Station doesn't dissapoint. My kids (8 & 5)
and I have had fun this summer reading through some of the Imagination
Station books. They love that they feature a boy AND a girl. I love
the Christian values and history they introduce. Well done!

Beth and Patrick finally receive some answers to the mystery which has had them chasing treasure across time and across the globe.
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.

In Peril in the Palace, Beth and Patrick had been transported by the Imagination Station to an unknown time and place. Now, in Revenge of the Red Knight, they must find a thief and get back home. This exciting adventure includes a wounded knight, stolen treasures, and jousting tournaments. Will Beth and Patrick be able to find the thief before Albert is locked up in Lord Darkthorn's tower? And will they ever make it back home to Odyssey?
I loved this fourth book in the Imagination Station series. Beth had a bigger role in this book and has to find Patrick by herself after he was taken away from being accused as a thief. I liked seeing her character grow more in this story. There was also a surprise in the jousting tournament - the red knight is not who you think he is! Also, there is a chance for Beth and Patrick to get home by using Mr. Whittaker's ring, but it's snatched away by the bad guy! Now they must get it back before it's used to cause all kind of trouble in the past.

In Revenge of the Red Knight (#4), the cousins find themselves in a cave after jumping in the Imagination Station, hoping to head back to Whit's End. Many of the mysteries from the first three books begin to work themselves loose as new details come to light in this book. New mysteries emerge though with the discovery of a secret room and with the meeting of new characters. Speaking of new characters, this book seemed to have a few too many characters to keep track of. Between the knights, knaves, lords, ladies, and squires -- it was hard to remember who was on what side (of course, this could be due to the fact that I've only been getting three hours of sleep with the additional of our new little one!).
This book was filled with it's share of danger and suspense as well, though I don't think it was as well written as the previous three books. It didn't seem to be as much as a page-turner as I was used to experiencing with the other books in this series. Nonetheless, it certainly was worth the read and I would recommend it to any preteen or parent of preteen. For under $5, it's certainly worth buying for your kids!

In book four which also concludes the mystery of where the notes are coming from and why Albert is in danger, Beth and Patrick find themselves in ancient England. Once again, they face danger and adventure but are able to help Albert and fund out who is sending the notes to the imagination station.
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.

Book 4 in the series is packed with action adventure as the cousins find themselves in trouble in England. As they search for the stolen treasures they finally get to meet Albert and along the way face much danger! But the adventure isn't over yet! Mr. Whitaker is left to solve another mystery that I am sure will lead to more adventures for Patrick and Beth. *I received this book compliments of Tyndale House Publishers for purposes of this review, however all opinions are my own.Was this review helpful?

In this fourth book, eight-year-old cousins, Beth and Patrick, are in 15th century England at Lord Darkthorn's. Patrick and James are taken to the stocks by Lord Darkthorn's steward, Hugh. Meanwhile Beth learns who has been taking the artifacts from the three previous adventures. Beth and Patrick finally meet Albert and Sir Andrew jousts with Hugh, for the freedom of the kids. Will Patrick and Beth make it back to Whit's End? Our Experience: B and C were very excited to get Revenge of the Red Knight book. We used it for our nighttime story and for our daily reading as well. The kids couldn't wait to read more. B and C love reading Christian books. The book was exciting with two young children venturing through time and space. What I Liked: B and C were very eager to have it read to them. It was easy enough B could have read it to himself or to his sister. The importance of honor, justice, prayer, and fair jousting. What I Disliked: Not enough of a historical background. What B (boy, age seven, second grade in the fall) Liked and Disliked: I loved Revenge of the Red Knight. Why? Sir Andrew is a good knight. He is the same knight who saved Beth and Patrick in Peril in the Palace. There was a tournament against Hugh and Roderick, because Hugh wanted to lock people in Lord Darkthorn's tower, which he could not do. I think this book is good for kids my age to read to themselves or to have someone read to them. What C (girl, age five, kindergarten in the fall) Liked and Disliked: It was good, good, good. It was fun to learn about knights. Sir Andrew had the ring for the Imagination Station. At the beginning of the book the kids were in a cave full of bats instead of going to Whit's End. It is good for kids my age. Would I Recommend: I would highly recommend Revenge of the Red Knight. It should be in every library. Disclaimer: I received this book free from Tyndale House Publishers.
