Battle for Cannibal Island is the 8th book in the Imagination Station series. If you are not familiar with Focus on the Family's Adventures in Odyssey the Imagination Station is a contraption built by Mr. Whit that takes kids on adventures in different parts of time. They go on adventures in the Bible and different times in history. We love these books because they help get our 8 year old interested in history. It's a great alternative to the Magic Tree House books as it uses no magic and I know it is from a Christian perspective and safe to read.

The Battle for Cannibal Island is the story of missionary James Calvert. Patrick and Beth end up on a boat in the Queen's Navy in the 1850s. They end up as stowaways and Patrick ends up shipwrecked on Fiji or Cannibal Island. It is a story of Calvert's love for the Lord and putting others salvation above his own life. As in all Imagination Station books Patrick and Beth learn a valuable lesson about putting others needs above their own. It's a great read and we highly recommend it.
