Jeremy blinked. He was sitting beside a swamp. Green slime covered the murky water. Cold clammy fog tickled his face.

Jeremy had just traveled back in time three thousand years. He didn't look any different. He was still wearing his jeans and runners. He didn't feel any different. Except that he was stiff and cold.
He looked around for Aristotle. The cat was sitting on a mossy log, washing his fur.

"The Underworld sure is foggy," said Jeremy.

Aristotle stopped licking. "We aren't in the Underworld yet." He flicked his tail. "You better check the map."

In Jeremy and the Enchanted Theatre, Jeremy traveled to Mount Olympus with an orange cat named Aristotle to save Mr. Magnus's theatre, but Zeus only agreed to help Mr. Magnus if he could solve the riddles on three scrolls. Now, in Jeremy in the Underworld, Jeremy is willing to help solve the first riddle, but is he ready to travel into the Underworld to do so?
Canadian Book Review Annual - June 1, 2008
"There is enough action and humour to keep a young reader engaged. Recommended."
CM Magazine - October 27, 2006
Times Colonist - July 23, 2006
"It's an inspired way to introduce primary school readers to classical mythology."
