Like your magic with a side of unintended consequences? Dive into four children's thrilling, frightening and nearly supervision-free summer as they discover The Enchanted Castle. As lifelong fans of sinister magical rings, E. Nesbit's classic is fully in our wheelhouse - although it's the absurd quantities of PRETEND FOOD that bring out our true devotion. It's time to swim with marble statues, chase an Ugly Wugly around London and demand your afternoon tea, at any cost (we see you, Jimmy). Great for invisible and non-invisible listeners alike!
This episode was inspired by a listener suggestion - thanks so much for emailing us about E. Nesbit, Dan! If you have a book you love that you'd be interested in hearing us cover, just shoot us an email at email@example.com.
