Cousins Beth and Patrick are trying to help Mr. Whittaker reclaim several missing treasures from a treasure room in ancient England. They've been to Greenland, the time of Kublai Khan, and now they are in England in the 1400's. It's here that they meet Hugh, a man they soon realize is a villain. Will they be successful in restoring the historical treasures?
I think that it would have been very helpful for me to have read books 1-3 in the series before this one. But I didn't. Still I was able to enjoy it.
I did find that this one didn't have the nuggets of truth that some of the later ones I read do. In some ways, I think that the author was trying too hard to make the storyline work. But I can still see kids enjoying this one. I probably read this in about 30 minutes.
While this one wasn't my favorite of the Imagination Station series, I liked it.
I rented this book from the library to read as part of Tyndale's Summer Reading Program. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommended to fans of Adventures in Odyssey, I survived, Magic Tree House, kids ages 7-9
