Betsy gets political with her "Reading (Too Much Into) Picture Books" series. "The Cat and the Hat Comes Back" is just an innocent tale about fighting a menacing and rapidly spreading red stain, right?  Betsy has other ideas. After that, Laura Ruby stops by to talk about her National Book Award nominated title "The Bone Gap", her influences, and how feminism plays into classical fairytale tropes.

 Betsy's "Reading (Too Much Into) Picture Books" series takes a turn for the British when she consider the interpersonal (and interspecies) relationships on display in Jo Lodge's "Ready, Steady, Go, Mr. Croc". Then she sits down with the truly delightful Rita Williams-Garcia to talk about "Gone Crazy in Alabama" and while older sisters have an unpleasant, but necessary, job to do.
