Children's Literature - Cindy L. Carolan
Everything is not well in the Enchanted Theater. Each time a play is performed, lightning bolts flash, knocking out the power which sends the patrons home. This is a sign from the Greek god Zeus, warning the director, Mr. Magnus, to stop messing around with the ancient myths. To stop this curse on the theater, young Jeremy must travel back in time to solve three riddles. He and his talking cat Aristotle journey at sunset to the Underworld to unravel these mysteries. Along the way they meet the ferryman, the dog with three heads, Hades, Sisyphus, Hercules, the seven sisters, and Queen Persephone. The chapters are short and simple; childlike, black-and-white illustrations are scattered throughout the book. This is part of the "Jeremy and the Enchanted Theater" series; the next book in the series is "Jeremy and the Golden Fleece." This book is written in a similar manner as the books in the "Magic Tree House" series by Mary Pope Osborne (boy with a backpack traveling through time to learn about history by living it, no time having passed upon his return, and the like). The author lives in Bridge Lake, British Columbia and also wrote the "Max and Ellie" books.

Read an Excerpt

Jeremy blinked. He was sitting beside a swamp. Green slime covered the murky water. Cold clammy fog tickled his face.

Jeremy had just traveled back in time three thousand years. He didn't look any different. He was still wearing his jeans and runners. He didn't feel any different. Except that he was stiff and cold.

He looked around for Aristotle. The cat was sitting on a mossy log, washing his fur.

"The Underworld sure is foggy," said Jeremy.

Aristotle stopped licking. "We aren't in the Underworld yet." He flicked his tail. "You better check the map."
