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. 

Chapters seven and eight of The White Mountains are The Tripod, and Flight and a Follower. During the second day of the tournament, Will learns something that horrifies and deeply saddens him. It also helps him realize that he must escape from the Castle of the Red Tower and join his cousin Henry and Beanpole on their journey to the White Mountains. But every day as the three are traveling, it becomes more and more obvious that a Tripod is tracking them!

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