Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum is a comedy-driven animated adventure based on Brad Meltzer and Christopher Eliopoulos’ best-selling kids’ book series, Ordinary People Change the World

Follow the adventures of Xavier, Yadina, and Brad, as they travel back in time to meet famous heroes of the past and learn how to be their own heroes of the present! Young explorers spend some time with prominent historical characters to learn the skills they have and what lead them to the future success. While museum environment might be still in real life but not in the series. Everything there is in action and live. Xavier, Yadina, and Brad get great opportunities to meet and talk to Johann Sebastian Bach, Marie Curie, Mary Shelly, Harry Houdini,George Washington Carver, Charles Dickens, Amelia Earhart, Zora Neale Hurston and many others! Young learners also learn about history countries, traditions and languages during their travels!

In each episode, the adventurous trio is presented with a social-emotional problem that young viewers can relate to. In order to help solve this problem, Xavier, Brad and Yadina deliberately turn to the Secret Museum: a bat-cave style room hidden beneath an ordinary museum, which allows them to travel back in time to meet real-life inspirational figures of the past when they were kids. Historical heroes were once ordinary kids, just like you and me. They had fears, they had doubts, and they had everyday difficulties. Likewise, it’s our belief that every kid has the makings of a hero inside of them. By making strong emotional connections between our inspirational figures as children and our three main characters, Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum strives to show kids that they, too, can be heroes.

Xavier is that slightly weird kid and unspoken leader of our trio. He’s the one who rushes headfirst into adventure, even if he has no idea where it will lead. Especially, if he has no idea where it will lead! He’s insatiably curious and will do whatever he must to satisfy that curiosity. He’ll also do whatever it takes to get a laugh; Xavier loves telling jokes, he’s the stand-up comedian of the group. 

Like her older brother, Yadina is always up for an adventure - she loves travel (the geographical-kind and the temporal-kind), trying new foods and learning new customs. She’s very extroverted, not a wallflower at all - but she’s still just six. She’ll get hungry or tired all of a sudden, and then have to have a nap or eat RIGHT NOW! She hates mean-ness of any kind and will let that mean-person know exactly what she thinks of them.

The series is for a kid like Brad. The kid who needs to be shown, and then reminded, that the historical figures we call “great” or “heroes” were all human beings with fears, flaws and doubts just like him. One of the reasons Brad keeps going on these often dangerous and terrifying adventures with Xavier is that when he returns, he feels bolder, braver - and Xavier knows Brad had these qualities within him the whole time.

You can watch the series on PBS KIDS and TVOkids in Canada. For more information on the books that inspired the series, please visit: https://www.ordinarypeoplechangetheworld.com/
