Every summer, we ask our interns to pick their favorite episode. UC Irvine graduate John Gomez chose Claire Legrand's novel "Foxheart." Witches, monsters, and a brave little thief. Those are the ingredients in the book. Book Club for Kids fan Kailas and her two fellow readers Iona and Gabi discuss the novel at Boulder Bookstore with host Kitty Felde. Our celebrity reader is actor Wesley Mann. Writer Claire Legrand explains how "Foxheart" began as a short story challenge.

Wesley Mann  has acted in film, television, microphone and onstage for over thirty years. You may recognize him as Mr. Lawler on "That’s So Raven," Mr. Bell on "Liv And Maddie," and The Caterpillar on "Adventures In Wonderland."

We'll hear from Ellie and her classmates at Lafayette Elementary School in DC nd a real dog expert: Mia Cobb, a canine scientist from down under.
