Battle for Cannibal Island by Marianne Hering, Wayne Thomas Batson (Review)

  • Age Range: 6 - 9 years
  • Series: AIO Imagination Station Books (Book 8)
  • Paperback: 144 pages
  • Publisher: Focus on the Family (October 1, 2012)
  • ISBN-13: 978-1589976740

 It’s 1852 and cousins Patrick and Beth sail to Fiji on the HMS Calliope under the command of Captain James E. Home. They arrive at the islands to find that the Christian Fijians are at war with the non-Christian Fijians. Missionary James Calvert is trying to make peace and suggests that the captain allow peace negotiations on board the British vessel. Patrick and Beth learn about sacrificial living when they observe Calvert’s determination to live on Fiji despite the dangers and impoverished conditions and that he is willing to risk his life to live as Jesus would.

My Review:

 This is another action packed adventure for Patrick and Beth. The imagination station takes them to a ship that is battling cannibals. Missionary James Calvert makes an appearance. There are several twists and turns in the book. Patrick and Beth learn what it is to have sacrificial love and live for God. Recommended.
