Kate S | 6269 comments In honor of Winter's Tale and The Winter's Tale, read a book with the title format "The Something's Something". You may omit the leading article, but there will be no following words nor a subtitle.

We will accept a leading article or similar word, plus any adjective for either of the 'somethings' works, but not complete sentences or further wandering from the designated title structure.

Rosemary | 3126 comments So ... The Yiddish Policemen's Union with an adjective works?

What if the first one is a person's name, like Felicia's Journey?

Coralie | 2552 comments Would a plural possessive work such as The Magicians' Guild?

Would an indefinite article work such as A Partisan's Daughter?

yes to both of these.
