Hunt for the Devil's Dragon

3.5 Stars
Thumbs up for "Hunt for the Devil's Dragon". This is a fun read-out-loud with your kids. As soon as we finished my kids wanted to read it themselves. My 8 year old LOVED it. My 10 year old really liked it, and even my 12 year old sat and listened each night.
At the start this book feels a lot like the Magic Tree House books.
The basis of this series contains a boy and girl who go on adventures through a time machine called the imagination station. As the story begins Beth has a run in with a bully at school. She and Patrick enter the imagination station and zoom back through time to meet Roman soldier bullies, village bullies and the worst bully of all.  A clever story unravels as Patrick and Beth learn how to face their fears and win. My only problem with this story was how the names of the characters would get a little confusing.  The author needs to work out the dialogue to let it run a little more smoothly without confusing us with all the names.  Yet, this is a fun and simple series for the kids who like an adventure. 
Tyndale House Publishers provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
