64 pages
Jeremy should be at home eating his supper. Instead he has traveled through time with a cat named Aristotle to Mount Olympus, home of the Greek gods. Neither he nor Aristotle has any idea how to get home, let alone how to help Mr. Magnus lift Zeus's curse on his theater, where no play has been performed for years. Not knowing what else to do, Jeremy and Aristotle climb toward the summit, finding adventure all the way.

Chapter One The Enchanted Theater
Jeremy hated walking home from school. First he had to run past the house where the mean boy lived. Ÿen he had to run past the house where the big dog with fangs lived. I wish I were brave, thought Jeremy. He shivered. He got ready to run. Just then the mean boy came out of his front door. Jeremy hid behind a tree. Ÿe boy picked up a rock. He threw it at an orange cat that was sitting on top of a fence. Hisss, went the cat. Ÿe boy laughed. He picked up another rock.

Ÿen the big dog walked out of its yard. It growled. Its fangs were long and pointed. “Yikes!” said the boy. He turned and ran. He ran right past Jeremy’s tree. Jeremy ran too. He ran ten whole blocks before he stopped. He looked around. Ÿe boy was gone. So was the dog. Ÿe buildings were dark and closed up. Jeremy was in a part of the town where he had never been before. He was lost. Meow,a voice behind him. Jeremy turned said around. Ÿe orange cat had followed him. “Do you know the way back to my street?” said Jeremy. Ÿe cat blinked. Ÿen it slipped inside the front door of a big building. “Wait!” said Jeremy. “You have to help me!” He looked up. A blue and gold sign on the building said Ÿe Enchanted Ÿeater. Jeremy took a big breath. Ÿen he went inside too.

He followed the cat across a soft carpet. Ÿey went through another door into a huge room filled with rows and rows of empty seats. At the front was an enormous stage. Cobwebs hung from the ceiling. Ÿe cat trotted between the seats. It leaped onto the stage. Jeremy scrambled up too. Ÿe dusty curtains made him sneeze. Ÿe cat darted into a dark hallway with tall skinny doors. Light shone under the first door. Ÿe cat stopped. A sign on the door saidAncient Greek Costumes. Ÿe cat pushed it open and disappeared. “Here you are at last!” said a whispery voice. Jeremy’s heart thumped. He went inside.

Chapter Two Mr. Magnus
A small man sat beside a window reading a book. His shoulders were bent. He looks so sad, thought Jeremy. Ÿe man looked up. His mouth fell open. He closed the book. Jeremy saw the wordse Enchanted eater Rule Bookon the cover. Ÿe man stood up. He held out his hand. “I’m Mr. Magnus.” He pointed to the cat who sat on top of a blue and silver trunk. “And this is Aristotle.” Jeremy shook the man’s hand. It felt like thin paper. “I’m Jeremy.”
