Because once upon a time, fairy tales were awesome. (Ages 10-14)

As the narrator collects their tales, the store of these three unlikely allies begins to come together. Their adventure takes them on a chase through France to escape prejudice and persecution and save precious and holy texts from being burned.

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

So You Want to Be a Jedi?

by Adam Gidwitz

I get it, it seems cool. You can move things with your mind. Control people with your thoughts. Oh, and the lightsabers. Yeah, those are awesome. But listen, it’s not all mind control and weaponized flashlights. Being a Jedi requires patience, strength and self-awareness. And training. Lots of training.
Tell you what. I’m going to tell you a story. Not just a story. The story. The story of one of the greatest Jedi ever. As I tell it, I’m going to give you some tests to see if you’ve got what it takes. If you’re afraid, I don’t blame you. Most folks don’t have what it takes. Most folks are just ordinary. Which is okay. There is nothing wrong with ordinary. But if you’re ordinary, you can’t be a Jedi. (Ages 8-12)
