Show Notes

In episode 9, our fearless captain Rolo’s most prized possession is stolen, and the Story Pirates must band together to unmask the thief.

This week’s episode features two new stories: “Ladybug Tickle Day,” a tale about a time- honored entomological tradition written by a pre-K’er from Oregon named Ada, and “Cement Dude,” a spaghetti western-inspired musical saga about the bravest, most misguided dude in the desert, written by a second grader from California named Ilan.
