Book Review: The Battle for Cannibal Island

Beth and her cousin Patrick are once again sent on an adventure in the Imagination Station. This time they find themselves on a ship sailing through an area that is known for its cannibals. After being labeled as stowaways they find themselves in danger around every turn. During a storm and in the midst of a prison break the cousins are separated and become desperate to find each other again. Through this adventure the cousins learn about bravery and the importance of relationships - caring for others more than themselves, as Mr. Calvert demonstrates to them.

Unlike some children's books,  this book kept me on my toes trying to figure out what might happen next! Just when you think Beth and Patrick are safe, more trouble seems to find them. I really liked the character of Mr. Calvert who willingly sacrificed and put himself in harms way so that the cannibals could hear the gospel. He showed little concern for himself, and so much more concern for the souls of the lost.
