Officially our most-requested book, it’s easy to see why The Thief is beloved by so many dragon babies.

Listen in for Newberry Medal resentment, a whole lot of olives, and the continued butchering of every proper noun in fantasy.
This episode was a listener request - thank you so much, Madeline, Erin, and Donley! If you’d like to submit a request, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
