This episode, we celebrate World Book Night, and welcome new members to our HTGYG team – Laith Preston and his daughters. Laith does a lot of reviewing over at The Dragon Page, and they’ll be joining us to review kids’ books! They call in to tell us about their experience handing out copies of Ender’s Game to random folks for World Book Night.
Then, my son Kevin entertains us with reviews of some of his favorite books: the manga books The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages; the kids’ novel Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist Book One:Flight of the Phoenix, the young adult novel Star Wars:The Wrath of Darth Maul, and the graphic novel Star Wars Omnibus: Boba Fett. Then he discusses how Ender’s Game is a book he’s started but hasn’t finished yet – he thinks that he should be older to understand the story better. We’re also looking forward to the movie version slated to come out next year.
If you have book, movie, board or video game reviews that you’d like to share, write or record them and send them to me! We’re interested in anything kid-appropriate!
