The fourth one was the collection of short stories, not Tehanu. A lot of people get ...

My fiance had an idea that we could all do the same ingredients and cook something up. That would be interesting! Then post the recipes of what we made. Iron Chef: Librivox!!

All of the stories tie into the main story, if I remember correctly.

Oh, I just love this book to death. I was so happy when I was finally trusted to be able to read my families version on my own. ^.^
