Strange Journey Back


Mark Prescott is the new kid in town—and he doesn't want to be there. His parents have split up, and the only one who wants to be his friend is an annoying girl. But not all's bad. There's an amazing ice cream shop called Whit's End, and its owner is a quirky inventor named John Whittaker who seems to create fun and adventure for the whole town. As Mark gets drawn into life in Odyssey, the lessons he learns will change his life.

About the Series


Fans of the long-running audio series Adventures in Odyssey can hardly remember a time when there wasn't a Connie or a Eugene--or an Imagination Station. But there was. Now step back in time as these exciting novels whisk you away to the days before the popular radio show. Set in a time before the radio show, these stories often reference the beginnings of inventions like the Imagination Station, familiar characters like the Barclays coming to town, and other AIO references that fans enjoy.
