Peril in the Palace
|Attack at the Arena||Peril in the Palace||Revenge of the Red Knight|
While visiting Mr. Whittaker, Patrick and Beth find a letter requesting a golden tablet from China. The cousins visit Marco Polo, who is 21 years old and on his way to meet Kublai Khan in 1275. The Khan is easily impressed by the Chinese magicians in his court, but Patrick and Marco Polo set out to show that it is science, not magic, behind their tricks. Upon realizing that Patrick and Beth have rare knowledge, the Khan tries to keep them with him forever. During their stay in China, the cousins meet Ollie, an 11-year-old boy who has been sending them notes about Albert. The three children win the favor of the Khan’s wife, and she helps them escape with a golden tablet that will guarantee them safe passage out of China. When they return home, they find out that Mr. Whittaker has met the mysterious Albert on a previous Imagination Station visit.
The place?-China in 1271. The quest?-the golden tablet of Kublai Khan. The problem?-just about everything!
The Imagination Station adventures continue as cousins Patrick and Beth are kidnapped by Mongol warriors. Only the friendship of fellow traveler Marco Polo saves them from harm. They are brought to the Mongol palace where the Kublai Khan dislikes both their gifts and their message about Christianity. The tension grows when the Mongol magicians challenge the cousins to a spiritual power showdown. As war breaks out, Beth and Patrick are locked in a secret room to prevent their escape.
How do the cousins get the golden tablet they needs to save Mr. Whittaker's friend Albert? How do they escape the city and find the Imagination Station? Ever the perilous palace and find out!
