The Adventure continues...

A long time ago, people came from everywhere to see the plays at the Enchanted Theater. But when Mr. Magnus bought the theater, things started to go wrong. Mr. Magnus mixed up the plays and changed the endings. Zeus, the king of the Greek gods, was so angry he hurled lightning bolts at the theater. Soon no one came to see the plays.

Today the Enchanted Theater is dusty and silent. But not forgotten. Mr. Magnus and his two friends, Jeremy and the talking cat Aristotle, are working hard to save the theater. In their first time-travel adventure,Jeremy and Aristotle traveled to Mount Olympus to meet Zeus. Zeus gave them three riddles. He promised that he would stop punishing the theater when all three riddles were solved.

Jeremy and Aristotle traveled into the land of the dead to solve the first riddle. The second riddle took them on a sea voyage on the famous Greek ship, the Argo.

Where will the Enchanted Theater send Jeremy and Aristotle to solve the third riddle?

Mr. Magnus unrolled the scroll.

“The last riddle,” said Jeremy.

“And a real doozer!” said Mr. Magnus. His voice shook. “
