Hunt for the Devil's Dragon

The Hunt for the Devil's Dragon by Marianne Hering, Wayne Thomas Batson and illustrated by David Hohn is the 11th in the Imagination Station series.  I've got to repeat once again how much I really enjoy this series.  I can't believe there is only one more to go!  This is simply a refreshing series for young readers.  These books are filled with learning, history, values and excitement.  This one has a real dragon in the story; I know my kids are excited about that.  The Hunt for the Devil’s Dragon deals with the topic of bullying and more specifically standing up to bullies.  It's a tough subject and too many of our children face bullying in schools.  This would be a great read to share with a child that is dealing with this issue. It would be a great starting point to open up the discussion with your child.   It gives many examples of bullies/bullying and reinforces that you should always stand up for yourself, your friends and for what if right.  This series keeps surprising me.  I love the wealth of time periods and cultures that we’ve traveled.  The books are filled with Biblical truths.  All this packed into the adventure of a good read! 

I received a copy of the book for the purpose of this review from Tyndale Publishing.
