In a rare book-based disagreement with my youngest, I'm bringing the drama and recommending a book we mention a little bit later in the episode, namely EVERGREEN by Matthew Cordell. It's a rare treat for a rambling adventure to fit so well in a picture book format. It's got danger, family drama, heroism, betrayal, soup in an acorn, what I have to assume is an allusion to Lord of the Rings, and a stunning and hilarious reveal in the book's climax. My daughter didn't like to read this one because of the scary hawk, but if you can get over that you'll have a blast.
