Hunt for the Devil's Dragon (Imagination Station Book 9) In this book, Mr. Whittaker’s Imagination station sends cousins Beth and Patrick to 13th Century Libya, where a cruel animal, believed to be a devil sent by the Devil, is attacking the townsfolk’s livestock. This story is a little ‘dark’, and I’m not a fan of dragon stories, but it’s still a fun, adventurous read for brave young readers—especially boys. Parents may want to read this one with their child if they’re sensitive or apt to have bad dreams, etc. It’s not overly graphic, but parents should be aware that very young children could be hypersensitive. Hunt for the Devil’s Dragon teaches young book explorers to stand up for what they believe in, and the rewards for steadfastness. The morals are strong, the fun destinations the cousins visit provide opportunities to learn a bit about history, and the books are invaluable tools to teach sons and daughters much needed direction. I give props to the author and illustrator for these memorable characters that embody sound Christian principles.

Although I'm a fan of the Imagination Station books, this one is one of my least favorites. I like the way the series teaches children about history, but I thought the theme of this one was a little darker than the others. However, despite the dark theme, this book offers children a look into life during early Christian times and a good lesson about faith. Parents, be aware that your children might have a lot of questions about human sacrifice. You might want to pre-read this one. I continue to love this series and will definitely read more of the books. If you are looking for a great series for beginning chapter readers, this is a great one.

When Beth shows up at Whit’s End upset over her friend Rachel being accused of cheating during a math test when she obviously didn’t, Whit wanted to know why she was upset over a lie. Beth said she was afraid. So Whit sent Beth and her friend Patrick on an Imagination Station adventure. They end up in Libya where they meet Hazi and Sabra and their father Tarek. When they head home in Tarek’s wagon, a servant rushes up with news that a young shepherd was taken by a dragon. The village people want sacrifices and have chosen a girl. When Tarek orders them to let her go, the villagers seize his daughter Sabra. Will the dragon eat Sabra? Who will rescue the girls? The cousins learn the importance of standing up for truth in this exciting adventure!

I love these Imagination Station books! In this one the cousins Patrick and Beth end up in 13th century Libya and learn about the Roman soldiers there, dragons, saber toothed tigers and standing up for those wronged. Great book!

Updated Adventures in Odyssey book for young children teaches a good lesson (but with a misleading title) As this is the first Imagination Station book I read, I was surprised - I expected the storyline to be slightly more advanced. (I'm used to the Adventures in Odyssey and Imagination Station from 15+ years ago. The characters & illustration style are different from then! This makes sense, I just didn't think about that before picking up the book.) Instead, you have a pretty basic story filled with basic language aimed at young elementary school children. The book teaches children to stand up for what is right, and not be afraid of bullies, which is certainly a useful lesson. Given the large illustrations & large type, the book is even smaller than it appears - which is pretty thin - and provides a very easy read. Because of the lack of depth to the book, my inclination is to give it 3 stars, however, keeping in mind it's intended audience of young children improves the rating by a star. B&N doesn't have half stars, or I'd knock it down to 3.5 stars for a misleading title - the "Devil's" part of "Devil's Dragon" is irrelevant to and completely missing from the story. "Hunt for the Dragon" would be a more accurate, but not as catchy, title.

Hunt for the Devil’s Dragon is the eleventh installment to the Imagination Station Series. Beth and Patrick go on yet another adventure that takes them back to the Roman times. It is full of action with a good lesson that young and old could learn from. This isn’t my favorite of the others from the series I have read but it is still good. 4 ½ stars

I love this series of books. I've read a few now, but this was my least favorite. I really like how the others I've read have been about real life heros of the past. This one was based on an imaginary knight who fought dragons. There is still some interesting history to talk about after reading it, but it wasn't the same as being based on a real person. I felt like they were just trying to write a book boys would like because it had a dragon in it. But besides that, it was well-written and action packed. My three girls ages 8-4 loved it.

Exciting Series; There truly is a lot of imagination in these Imagination Station stories. The historical figures are presented creatively and in a very entertaining way. Read them first, to be sure they are age appropriate for your child. The stories reflect real history as well as stories that could be hyperbole. They are useful for sending readers to research more into the characters. Two children are transported to different places and times, where they have character-building experiences. This one combines dragons and a large saber-tooth feline with heroes and bad guys for an uplifting lesson.

This book was one of the best we've read in the Imagination Station series. It was so incredibly good! My kiddos are fascinated by dragons and dinosaurs, and this definitely proved to hold their interest. Besides that, the historical undertones were enough to grow their steadily increasing love for history (makes a history loving mama proud!)
