How the Adventure Began…

Long ago, the Enchanted Theater was a wonderful place. People came from everywhere to see the ancient Greek plays.

Then Mr. Magnus bought the theater. That’s when the trouble started. Mr. Magnus made up new endings for the plays. He mixed up all the characters.

Zeus, the king of the Greek gods, was furious. He hurled lightning bolts at the theater. The power went out. People stopped coming to see the plays. The actors quit.

Jeremy and Aristotle the cat traveled back in time to meet Zeus. They traveled all the way to Mount Olympus, the home of the Greek gods.

Zeus told them that Mr. Magnus was ruining the Greek plays. He gave Jeremy three scrolls. Each scroll had a riddle. If Mr. Magnus solved all three riddles, Zeus promised that he would stop punishing the Enchanted Theater.

Mr. Magnus needed help from his friends. Jeremy and Aristotle traveled back in time to the ancient Greek underworld. They solved the first riddle.

Now they are ready for the second riddle!

Jeremy was good at riddles. But Mr. Magnus looked worried.
