Adventure Clubhouse #2 is the second collection of fantastical stories for kids from Marcus Emerson. This volume includes Soda Can Time Machine, Riley and the Enchanted Coin, Robot Factory, and The Secret Witch.
In "Soda Can Time Machine," Isaac and his friend have finally built the world's first time machine out of an ordinary soda can. As soon as he cracks open the soda, the two begin their clumsy trek through time and space, getting chased by dinosaurs, gladiators, and killer robots. With no way to control when or where the device drops them off, how will the two ever find their way back home?
In "Riley and the Enchanted Coin," Riley has found a weird coin in her backyard that mysteriously whisks her away to a ship in the middle of the ocean. The people aboard the ship look and sound like pirates, but that's impossible, isn't it? Will she be able to return home before they find her?
In "Robot Factory," Ava is touring a special factory that builds robots to work in the world. Her adventurous nature gets the best of her, and when she sneaks away from the rest of the group, she finds herself on the other side of the looking glass - where the robots learn and play.
In "The Secret Witch," Kiley is an 8th grade witch who's accidentally unleashed an entire zoo plus one dinosaur inside her school. Is she powerful enough to fix what she's done before the school is utterly destroyed?
