And Theseus and Ariadne finally face the dreaded Minotaur!

October 31, 2017 : It's Halloween!

We've got some monstrously fun stuff this week, starting with a look at an odd but wonderful new exhibit at the Denver Art Museum and two reviews of movies you'll want to thing about seeing. We've also got a pair of book reviews, one of a fictional person, one of a non-fictional one, both famous, plus the story of the first Jack O'Lantern. And we'll tell you where your pennies for UNICEF go, and, get ready, because this is when the action begins in Ariadne's story!

We begin this week with a hilarious musical play, and a display of very different dinosaurs you've probably never seen. We'll also review an action novel and some new things from American Girl, then talk about the volcano under Yellowstone Park, how alligators are eating sharks (really!) and get a look at Lego's new "Women of NASA" mini-figures. Plus Ariadne decides to risk her life helping Theseus!
