Showdown with the Shepherd (Adventures in Odyssey: The Imagination Station Series book 5) by Marianne Hering and Brock Eastman

The Fifth book in the Adventures in Odyssey: Imagination Station series was a delight to read.  Showdown with a Shepherd travels back in time to the story of David and Goliath; although, there are a few twists since that evil man Hugh has also traveled back to this time in history.  Now the cousins, Beth and Patrick, must find Hugh and stop him before he changes history!

Once again my daughter and I enjoyed reading this exciting story.  It's great since this story is very familiar to children and brings alive the well known characters of David and Goliath.  The authors have done a great job with keeping the story exciting, so exciting in fact, that my daughter is always asking if we can read one more chapter.  Like all of the other books, this one ends with another great adventure awaiting the cousins that makes the reader long to start reading that next book.  If you have a reluctant reader, try out this series.  It may be one that will pique his interest and help him see that reading can be fun!
 
We're looking forward to reading book 6 in the series, Problems in Plymouth!  Look for the review soon!

***I checked this book out from our local library to read for the Tyndale Summer Reading Program.  All opinions are my own.
