Book Review- Battle For Cannibal Island; Escaping to the Hiding Place

Book Review by little sister, Sara. Edited by me.

Battle for Cannibal Island is a very exciting book. After having read the first seven books to the Imagination Station Series, book 8 was much anticipated. Though the back cover shares some of what the book was about, it was not a spoiler, leaving me with plenty of surprises.

I enjoyed the exciting story line. From battling escape convicts, terrible storms, meeting the notorious cannibal king, Toki, your in for a ride of adventure and lots of imagination. The overall message of the book was showing kindness to those who are mean to you. One of my favorite examples of this principle was when after Patrick spoke meanly towards Beth she still decided to act like Jesus and try to rescue him, showing true kindness.

Escaping to the Hiding Place is a very action-filled book. Encountering plane crash, to meeting a German soldiers, and receiving a secret mission, you will journey with Beth and Patrick in the imagination station to WW||.

This story not only action-filled, was very informative, both intellectually and spiritually. I was able to learn about WW|| in a clear, fun, and imaginative way. The story taught me that even though I may be young, the Lord can still use me to help and make a difference.

I would have enjoyed knowing what happened in the end to certain characters, but overall I really enjoyed this book.

This series being  reccomended for ages 7 and up was just right for me. It being a chapter book, made the reading experience feel advanced, but with the occasional pictures it helped keep it kid friendly. The words are a nice big readable size for young children, but the words themselves are neither too hard, nor easy. Overall these were thrilling books and I highly recommend it, not only for young children, but to teens and parents too! I give Battle For Cannibal Island and Escape to the Hiding Place a 5 out of 5.

I received a complimentary copy of these books from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for an honest review. In no way has this influenced my opinion on the book or on the author.
