Book Review – Voyage with the Vikings

Voyage of the Vikings by Marianne Hering and Paul McClusker

This is the first of a new series by Adventures in Odyssey. This book is rated a 1.7 grade level book. So it was an easy read.

This time I decided to challenge myself by reading a kids book. The book centers around Patrick and Beth who are visiting Mr. Whittaker at Whit’s Soda Shoppe. They  go to the Imagination Station and find a letter requesting a Viking sunstone. The letter is old and says that someone named Albert will be imprisoned if the sunstone isn’t found. Patrick and Beth go to Greenland 1000AD in via the Imagination Station. Here they end up on a viking ship where they 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.

This is a good story with a bit of mystery with a good, moral lesson. I am sure children will enjoy it and maybe even a few student ministers.

This book was provided to me for review by Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review.
