This week on The Story Pirates Podcast, the crew receives a visit from an old friend who has gone through a magical transformation due to an interspecies cultural exchange.

This week’s episode features two new stories: “Star,” written by a first grader from New York named Charlotte, and “The World Wide Race of the Worst Cars,” written by a third grader from Pittsburgh named Ezra. Lee interviews author Ezra and learns that inspiration can strike when you least expect it.
