Ep 30: Hot Gladiators and Plague Gods


A bumper episode of 1 hr 20!

Matt and Nina from Even the Trunchbull come to mine, after I guested on their podcast discussing Joan Aiken’s Nightbirds on Nantucket and the lovely picture book Peggoty Po.

Matt and Nina’s book: Slaves of the Mastery by William Nicholson

Ali’s book: City of the Plague God by Sarwat Chadda

Book covers– compare Slaves of the Mastery with The Hunger Games

The cover that would have put Matt off, which reminded me of Stephen Pearson’s classic posters
