The Minotaur Riddle


Note: summary text provided by external source.

"The Spyglass Squad is back at Historia, and an exciting year is waiting for them. This time twelve-year-old Arthur Grey is kept busy discovering the real legends and artifacts behind ancient myths. But the most exciting experience is thrilling olympic games this year. That is, until new mysteries start cropping up. Strange rumors surface on the island of Crete, and a spiteful investor shows up pretending to have help for Historia. Even as it becomes more obvious that the Historia Society is the target of a villainous plot, everyone is too afraid to do anything about it. Now, Arthur and his friends dig themselves into monstrous trouble while trying to save Historia, and they can't solve this riddle alone. But who can—or will—help?"

Although the vast majority of books that have Lexile measures did not change, a small subset of books required updated Lexile measures.

Many products and services offer Lexile measures for their books and reading materials. We are working with the hundreds of companies that partner with us to transition them to the more precise Lexile measures.
