Welcome to Stories Come to Life. I am your host, Kathryn Lopez Luker. During this time of Covid, many people aren’t able to use the library in the same way as in the past. To help bring more stories to more readers, the publishing companies of Penguin Random House, Simon and Schuster, and MacMillan Publishers are allowing books that are normally unavailable for copyright reasons to be read out loud and shared with others until September 30, 2021. The stories that fall under that special permission will all be taken down on that date, so listen now, while they’re available! Today’s story is shared with permission of MacMillan publishing company. 

 Four years ago I visited a dear friend who lives in Paris. We had a wonderful time together exploring her beautiful old city. We peeked into shops and drank hot chocolate in sidewalk cafes and took the metro all over. It was quite a contrast between that enchanting experience and the one you will listen to today when Will, Henry, and Beanpole cross the desolate and ruined City of the Ancients on their way to the White Mountains. 

Now sit back, relax, and listen to this story come to life!
