    A Ballerdino Halloweeno (Guilds & Goblins #3)

    A Ballerdino Halloweeno (Guilds & Goblins #3)

    The Whatventurers (thanks Sam E. for the name suggestions) are back to save their friends from a strange song that seems to be luring them into the mist!

    Lessons include: failure can be part of the fun, especially when you’re playing a game with friends; taking time to feel sad can be very healing, and get you ready to feel happy and/or goofy again before you know it.

Greatest podcast of all time!

I (probably) know what you’re thinking:

`Come on, don’t they say this in every review?’

But this is different.

I’m an older kid but that’s confidential information so I’ll leave it at that, and it’s still a very very good podcast even at my age. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.
