Guys, we recorded for over an hour this week before scrapping the episode and re-recording on a different topic entirely. If we sound punchy at all it’s because it was late in England and in Canada. (Oops?)

But! This week we cover a delightful range of children’s and young adult books, which we hope you will enjoy, and we finish up with some book recs for you.

As usual the iTunes feed will be up later. Since it’s a week about children’s books we don’t actually have any fic recs for you. Go read a book! You can follow us on twitter over here for other updates.
