Heroes is the third mainstream Adventures in Odyssey album. It was previously released as Secrets, Surprises, and Sensational Stories.

Description[edit]

The kids from Odyssey manage to get themselves into – and out of – all kinds of interesting predicaments in these audio adventures. Rumor has it that the new family in town is connected to the Mafia, Odyssey Elementary School is troubled with bullies and Lucy struggles with telling a secret she vowed to keep. With a little prodding from Mr. Whittaker, they learn how God can help them deal with anything.
What makes someone a hero? In this collection, the Odyssey gang learns that heroes take many forms. But ultimately, the gang at Whit’s End realizes that trusting in God, the greatest Hero of all, will start them on one thrilling journey after another. Join the fun and cheer on these Heroes!

History[edit]

Early copies of the Gold Audio release had a glaring typo.

Heroes was first released as Secrets, Surprises, and Sensational Stories. This original release was the second in a series of seven alliteratively-named cassette albums. In its Gold Audio Series release, the album was re-titled Heroes and was available on cassette and CD. Very early copies of the Gold Audio release have the title of album misspelled as "Heros."
