Ricky and Pop Pop take a dream trip to meet Alexander the Great in Ancient Greece. This would be about 2500 years ago a least. First they meet Aristotle who shows them the way to the Temple of Athena who was Zeus' daughter beloved and worshiped by all of Athens. Ricky learns from Aristotle all about the Olympics where he participates in a horse race in the Hippodrome. Young Alexander is away fighting a war in the city of Tyre. They meet with the young Alexander and Ricky helps him learn how to play the Lyre. As with all the Ricky's books the fun facts at the end are not like learning at all.
