I thought I’d try a book aimed at a younger crowd to see if my children would like it. Hunt for the Devil’s Dragon by Marianne Hering and Wayne Thomas Batson is a book I thought my boys would go for. Just from the cover, it has a roman soldier and a dragon. For some reason it didn’t make them jump at it (but I confess they’re in the middle of a Harry Potter book and a few books from the library). I don’t have a doubt that they’ll check it out at some point.

The book is part of Focus on the Family’s Adventures in Odyssey, specifically the ninth book in their Imagination Station series. I admit to not being very familiar with Adventures in Odyssey, like others may be. Regardless of the reader’s familiarity, though, they book is enjoyable. Two children time travel (or is it just “imagination”?) back to ancient Roman times when Christianity was young and faced much opposition. Soon they find themselves dealing with brash Roman centurions, saber tooth cats, and that eponymous dragon! Of course, the whole adventure serves a deeper meaning as it teaches the children life-lessons–in this case about being bold and brave in doing the right thing. If you have children who enjoy adventures, I would have them check out the Imagination Station books. They seem to have good lessons while being imaginative.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.
