Description

Originally released as Cunning Capers, Exciting Escapades.

The town of Odyssey is abuzz. Is Curt really giving everyone free ice cream? Who stole $100 from the Whit's End cash register? And forget all that...is Mr. Whittaker really getting married?!? The kids in Odyssey find the answers in this exciting collection, with parables on superstitions, not-so-innocent games, and more.
Cunning capers and exciting escapades are a way of life for the Odyssey kids! They’re always up to something—and every adventure leads to an important lesson about living for God.
