In this game, Frankie was the former circus juggler. At his new house, Frankie was told by his old friend, Katia, that the evil-spirited magician, Mel, whom she was formerly an assistant to, turned the other circus performers into jigsaw puzzles and scattered the pieces around the circus carnival. And so Frankie vowed to help Katia and other performers. In order to save the circus from Mel, the goal of the player is to find each of the missing jigsaw puzzle pieces by playing each reading activity and earn each of the four tickets so that the player and Frankie can enter the Lost-and-Found wagon to get a clue.
