Book Review - Attack at the Arena

This week we are doing a review of the AOI The Imagination Station series. Yesterday we reviewed the first book: Voyage with the Vikings. Today we're on to book # 2, Attack at the Arena.
In the story Patrick and Beth travel back in time using Mr. Whittaker's Imagination Station to visit ancient Rome. In this adventure they are searching for the monk's chalice and end up having an interesting encounter with a monk and the Emperor.

Mom says: The first book set the mark pretty high so I was hoping that the second book wouldn't just be a rehash of the plot line with different characters and setting. While the tone and rhythm of the story remained consistent with the first book of the series, I was thrilled to be whisked away by a brand new and completely engaging plot. More than anything, I was  excited to see the Christian faith woven through the story with the inclusion of a true Christian hero - Telemechus, and used the opportunity to teach my kids a little of the history of the church.

Alex (9 years old) says: it's the perfect bedtime story. They still had the two main characters from the first book. It was perfect for a journal entry

Annie (7 years old) says: I love it. Beth is my favorite character. I hope they make more. You should read them too.

Louisa (7 years old) says: I love their costumes. So far the series is great. I like Patrick, I think he is funny. And I like the name of it too.
