Problems in Plymouth Book Review


 About the Book

The Imagination Station Adventures continue Patrick and Beth's next adventure leads them to Plymouth Plantation in 1621. There they meet William Bradford, Miles Standish, and Chief Massasoit, who are trying to establish peace between the Pilgrims and the Indians. Things are anything but peaceful, however, when a musket is stolen and the Pilgrims conclude the Indians are planning war. Only Patrick and Beth know who the real thief is--the traitor Hugh--and it's up to the cousins to find him and stop him from causing trouble. When the cousins hear a gunshot during the first Thanksgiving feast, their worst fears are realized. They rush to the "Mayflower" and try to set right history, even as Hugh desperately tries to change it. (Goodreads)

My Review

Beth and Patrick are off again in search for a character from a previous book. There is a prologue so the reader knows what is happening. Plymouth Plantation and Pilgrims and Indians are where the kids land right in the thick of things! While some of the things in this book are silly it's still full of history. I liked how right from the start the Indians are portrayed differently to the kids and the entire book takes a different angle than what is in the history books. There was a lot more going on at this times and many parts are skipped. I really loved this story and it really makes you think about history differently. It's perfect for young adults seven and up!
