I am Zora Neale Hurston Xavier and Yadina are eager to read a new comic Brad has written, but Brad isn't so sure he can share this particular story - it's very personal. What should he do? To the Secret Museum! Our heroes are sent back in time to meet an exceptional storyteller: Zora Neale Hurston. We meet Zora as she enjoys listening to the tall tales being told on the porch of her corner store, before launching into a few tales of her own. Listening to Zora tell her own personal stories, and watching her light up as she does, helps Brad to feel more comfortable with the idea of sharing his own story with his best friends. Because stories are best when you share them with others. I am Charles Dickens Yadina is left feeling bored on a rainy day after she's already played with ALL her toys - there's nothing left to have fun with. With no new toys to play with, there's only one thing left to do... To the Secret Museum! Our heroes are sent back in time to meet someone who was seldom bored: Charles Dickens. After a playdate with a young Charles, which involves zero toys but oodles of fun as they jump over "shark infested waters" and swim with a funny octopus named Fanny, Yadina realizes that she doesn't need anything new to play with, because her imagination can make everything more fun.
