Publisher Comments:

While visiting Mr. Whittaker at Whit's Soda Shoppe, Beth and Patrick find a mysterious letter in the Imagination Station requesting a Viking sunstone. The letter is old and says that someone named Albert will be imprisoned if the sunstone isn't found. Mr. Whittaker sends cousins Patrick and Beth to Greenland circa 1000. On their quest for the sunstone, the cousins meet Vikings Erik the Red and Leif Eriksson--and find the sunstone as they join Leif on his first voyage to North America. But the adventure is just beginning, for when they return to Mr. Whittaker's workshop with the sunstone, there is another note waiting for them, requesting a silver goblet. Join Patrick and Beth as they continue their travel to various lands and time in the Imagination Station book series.

Synopsis:

Beth and her cousin Patrick travel in Mr. Whittaker's invention, the Imagination station, to 1000 A.D. Greenland, where they meet Erik the Red and Leif Eriksson and witness the spread of Christianity in that country.

Peril. Suspense. Intrigue, and of course imagination! In the first book of this Adventures in Odyssey series, authors Marianne Hering and Paul McCusker capture the reader’s attention immediately. If you’re looking for a book series for your preteen (especially boys!), this may be the ticket.

In this high-seas adventure, cousins Beth and Patrick visit Whit’s End on an ordinary Monday. The day soon develops into an extraordinary experience as the kids take a ride in the Imagination Station in order to find a Viking Sunstone and to help save Whit’s friend, Albert.

The cousins encounter a few fierce Vikings, a few kind-hearted ones and some interesting sights and sounds. They learn the value of friendship, forgiveness, and the art of making tough decisions. They see how becoming a Christian can transform a person’s life and they learn how helping others sometimes requires sacrifice. This book provides great talking points for preteens and their parents. I would recommend it to anyone who has a love for adventure!
