When kids step into the Imagination Station they travel back in time and across the world with cousins Patrick and Beth. Each book is historically accurate, and readers will grow in their faith and knowledge of history, as they race through each unforgettable story. "I find you two children guilty of witchcraft!" Captain Magellan said. "The penalty is death." Patrick and Beth board the Victoria in 1521 on its journey to try and sail around the world. But, they make a bad first impression when they meet Captain Ferdinand Magellan. The cousins are accused of being witches and must prove their innocence. The crewmembers watch their every move, looking for an excuse to throw the cousins overboard. Meanwhile, Patrick finds a friend who has a secret. Beth becomes the new scribe for the voyage, stirring up jealousy from Antonio Pigafetta, one of Magellan's best friends. After a surprising miracle happens on the island, the crew-and the cousins-must take sides: Who thinks Magellan is unfit to lead? Who is loyal to Magellan and willing to risk their life to prove it?… (mais)

After cousins Beth and Patrick have an argument about loyalty and betrayal, Whit sends them on an adventure in the Imagination Station. They arrive in 1521 and become part of Magellan's expedition to circumnavigate the globe for a few days and along the way learn a little something about loyalty and betrayal.

I like the idea of the Imagination Station so much more when it's more like a holodeck adventure. Since it's apparently meant to be actual time travel in this series, some of the things that happen are just a bit too unbelievable to me. Still, I like the way it brings moments of history to life for young readers, and this one was no exception. Some of the details shared by Beth (who may know more than makes sense for her age, even after having just done a report about one of Magellan's ships) were interesting to learn about.

The time travel aspect and historical characters aside, the actual characters of Beth and Patrick took a hit in this story, in my opinion. While it certainly makes sense that they wouldn't be perfect kids and would even sometimes get into fights with each other, Beth did not know when to keep her mouth shut, and Patrick was just a little jerk at times. Overall, though, it's a fun look at historical accounts, written for kids, from a Christian viewpoint.

Thank you to Netgalley and Tyndale House Publishers/Focus on the Family for providing me a copy of this book to review. ( )
