A brand-new children's literature podcast all about the stories that shape us - and how the stories that formed us go on to shape the stories we create.

We'll be talking to children's authors, illustrators, bloggers, and book lovers of all sorts about the stories they loved as children (or perhaps, the stories they hated, feared, or were fascinated by!) and how those stories helped to shape their lives. Join us for weekly discussions about books, stories, and their power to change the world.
