I've saved the scariest book this month for last! "I'm not saying that Spooky Old Tree doesn't give you the jim-jams (because it doesn't), but ..." It's our very first Paul Galdone too! Took us long enough to get to him. As Kate says of today's book, "Well, THAT didn't end how I thought it would!" We discuss how this book relates to the film Best in Show, why my Tailypo imitation is a little too Gollum-esque, and why this may be the first book we've ever done on the show that ends with murder. Show Notes: A whole slew of different variations abound at AppLit's Annotated Index of Folktales. This is where you can find a large number of different names for this story. My favorite is Chunk o' Meat: http://www2.ferrum.edu/applit/bibs/tales/index.htm If you heard Kate discussing "In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeover", and you wanted to join in the fun then you can purchase tickets for the event here: https://watch.eventive.org/nyrphulaween/play/5f8cae40eec5900148cd44f8 For the full Show Notes please visit us at: http://blogs.slj.com/afuse8production/2020/10/26/fuse-8-n-kate-the-tailypo-by-joanna-galdone-ill-paul-galdone/
