Story Sleuths has an excellently thoughtful post on point of view in Laini Taylor's Blackbringer.

On April 26, the Enchanted Inkpot Book Club will begin discussing The Book of Three, by Lloyd Alexander--a classic of middle-grade fantasy. If you haven't read it, now's your chance!
Betsy at Fuse #8 is up to Number 2 in her compilation of the Top 100 Children's Novels. Will number 1 be a fantasy, like numbers 2, 3, and 4?
