Billy Stuart, the young raccoon leader of the Zintrepids Scout troop, aspires to be just like his grandfather, a globe-trotting adventurer who knows no fear. After accidentally traveling through time in pursuit of Grandpa, Billy and friends find themselves on the island of Crete, snout to snout with King Minos's Minotaur. It's a formidable challenge; Billy and his buddies have to escape the Minotaur, the labyrinth and King Minos's wrath and maybe, just maybe, find their way home!

Brightly illustrated and enhanced with games and puzzles, this sequel to Billy Stuart and the Zintrepids is sure to amuse readers of all ages.

"This sequel has no shortage of comedic moments or brain-busting puzzle interludes…A satisfying second helping."

"Sampar's bold illustrations make this book stand out as readers get to view many colorful settings, expressive characters, and scenes full of movement. Bergeron's accompanying text will produce plenty of giggles with humor that comes from silly situations and dialog alike."
