Book Review: Voyage with the Vikings

Here’s a new treat for young Adventures in Odyssey fans!

While giving a tour of Whit’s End to her cousin Patrick, Beth discovers that the Imagination Station is missing. The two children find it in Mr. Whittacker’s workshop, but there’s something wrong. Mr. Whittaker can’t get the machine to work and worse yet, there’s a note in the machine asking for help. When Mr. Whittaker finds that the machine fires up for Beth and Patrick, he asks them to fulfill the quest in the note. What follows is an adventure of a lifetime where the cousins meet Erik and Red and his son Leif in Greenland. Will they be able to find the mysterious Viking Sun Stone and return to the Imagination Station before Leif sails away with it on his ship?

Written for ages 7 and up (reading levels 1st through 7th grades), this book includes historical facts about early Christians among the Vikings and information about Greenland. Voyage with the Vikings is the first of five books in this new series, and sure to be a delight for young readers.

I received a free copy of this book for my review from Tyndale House Publishers.
