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.
