Review of "Peril in the Palace" by Marianne Hering and Paul McCusker
Cousins Beth & Patrick are on a great adventure, traveling to find Kublai Khan in 1271 - all they need is one of his golden tablets, to save Mr. Whittaker's relative Albert. They get into the Imagination Station (a time machine of sorts), packing some gifts Mr. Whittaker knows they will need, and off they go! When they arrive in China they make several (cultural) mistakes almost immediately, but are quickly saved by Marco Polo (yes, *that* Marco Polo). They travel with Marco and his family to the palace of Kublai Khan. Eventually they meet his granddaughter, Beki, who loves Jesus! It turns out that the gifts that Mr. Whittaker sent are timely and perfect, and they get the tablet they need. There's a bit of a cliffhanger at the end, too....
I am looking forward to seeing more in this series, it was fun! I love the combination of history and fantasy. Well done!
