We hope you enjoyed our Kids’ Pick as much as we did. Have a listen to what we had to say and let us know what you thought. Be warned, though: Just because the podcast is about a kid’s book doesn’t mean that the podcast is appropriate for kids. NSFW, as always.
Our Historical Fiction Pick for our next podcast will be The Man Who Saved Henry Morgan by Robert Hough. We hope you’ll join us for that discussion next month. Tania has also chosen her birthday pick for the following podcast: The Hidden Keys by Andre Alexis. So, you can can get a jump on that one too, if you want to.

Yay, just in time for my drive home from work *insert non-existent fistpump/frontkick emoji here*
Uh, The Man Who Saved Henry Morgan sounds f^$#ing amazing. I am totally reading along with this one. Prepare for a flood of comments next month.
We look forward to the deluge! – Kirt
I actually turned the volume down when you said “spoiler alert” so I won’t hear the rest. Sounds a bit scary for my kids now but maybe in a few years. I don’t want to know what the wasp/angel/alien things are till I read it!
The Man Who Saved… has several 4 and 5 star reviews from people I trust on Goodreads so, seems like a solid pick!
Probably wise to wait a few years for the boys to read it. If I had read it when I was their age I would have ended up in a sleep deprivation clinic. – Kirt
I read The Nest to my son a few months ago, and we both really liked it. Parts of it were pretty creepy, though. I’m glad he’s not afraid of wasps!
I tried reading The Man who Saved Henry Morgan a while back, but couldn’t get into it. I thought it sounded like fun, but I just didn’t seem to care what happened. I hope you’re liking it better than I did. Maybe you’ll convince me to give it another read!
I thought The Hidden Keys was a lot of fun!
