It all started with a dollar. One dollar paid at auction by Jupiter Jones for a dusty old trunk that once belonged to The Great Gulliver, a magician who vanished as mysteriously as one of his tricks. The trunk attracts a host of bizarre characters, like Zelda the Gypsy, Three-Finger Munger, and Maximilian the Mystic. But what's inside the trunk is even more bizarre--a skull that talks!

The Three Investigators were the new owners of a talking skull named Socrates. At least, it was supposed to be able to talk. But the boys hadn't been able to get a sound out of it.
"What a gyp!" said Pete.
"Maybe it just isn't in a talking mood," answered Jupiter, and the boys turned their backs on the skull.
Suddenly there was a muffled sneeze behind them. Whirling around, they saw no one there--no one, that is, but the skull.
Socrates had sneezed!
