Rachel & Sam Read a Story is about the fun of reading children's books, but it's also about how little sense these books make when you read them 20 years later. Sit back and let us re-read your childhood favorites, and some new additions to the world of children's lit, and make fun of them all the while! Enjoy!

Have you ever been in caveman times, y'know the Paleolithic era, and thought to yourself, "Hmmm. This is fun and all. What with the creation of fire and newfangled "wheel" thing the kids are going on about, but gosh darnit if I don't want some form of animal companionship to keep me company!"

Well, you're in luck! Me Want Pet! explores the necessities of caveman-pet ownership and the intrinsic struggles therein.

Also, silly story! Ug! Read book! Laugh lots! Thud!

Rachel & Sam Read a Story is about the fun of reading children's books new and old, and also about how little sense these books make when you read them 20 years later. We read the books aloud and make fun of them as we go. Enjoy!

Oh man, am I a huge fan of Kate Beaton and Hark a Vagrant! (www.harkavagrant.com) So I talk about this during the actual recording, but I discovered her in a Toronto bookstore and have been bonding with people over our mutual Vagrant love since then.

Now the book. It is adorable. It is about a Princess and her Fat Pony. Fat Pony is the greatest American (read: Canadian) hero.

I mean, Princess Pinecone is kinda amazing too, but Fat Pony steals the show. Honestly, I really shouldn't be typing anymore. Listen to the episode!

Yeast Burps can't stop Rachel and I from doing our job, and our job is READING YOU STORIES.

Let me tell you about this week's book. Hoot Owl has a problem. I mean, he (or she, it's never actually addressed) is hungry. So Hoot Owl has a solution, use a disguise, sneak up on prey, and STRIKE! For Hoot Owl is king. Hoot Owl is leader.

Hoot Owl worships the encroaching permanent darkness. The forever dark is coming for us all. Especially....

You.
