It's all-new Adventures in Odyssey episodes in volume 52, Cause and Effect. Join Eugene and Matthew as they investigate why the clock tower at City Hall seems to be stuck at 11:45. Could it have something to do with the anniversary of a lost love from twenty years ago? Barrett Jones couldn't be more excited about getting the lead role in the school play. But when his first practice is interrupted by a mysterious booming voice, Emily Jones and Matthew Parker must investigate the phantom of the school play. Also, perfect for the fall season, are stories on Thanksgiving (“A Thankstaking Story”) and Christmas (“Grandma’s Christmas Visit”).
