Hello, all! Here is another week's worth of what people have been writing about middle grade science fiction and fantasy. Please let me know if I missed your post, or the posts of your loved ones!
Adventures in Cartooning Activity Book, by James Sturm, Andrew Arnold, and Alexis Frederick-Frost, at Charlotte's Library (I love this book)
Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse, by Kaleb Nation, at The O.W.L.
The Entomological Tales of Augustus T. Percival--Petronella Saves Nearly Everyone, by at Book Aunt.
Magic Below Stairs, by Caroline Stevermer, at Fantasy Literature. (This one is a spin off of the world created by Stevermer and Patricia Wrede in a series that begins with Sorcery and Cecilia, reviewed at Book Aunt this week. That series isn't middle grade per se, but it is a perfect book for the seventh or eighth grade girl who loves both magic and Pride and Prejudice).
Middleworld (The Jaguar Stones Book 1), by J&P Voelkel, at The Reading Zone.
Moonshadow: Rise of the Ninja, by Simon Higgins, at Charlotte's Library.
The Prince of Fenway Park, by Julianna Baggot, at Book Nut.
Scumble, by Ingrid Law, at Eva's Book Addiction.
A look at Garth Nix's Keys to the Kingdom series, at Guy's Lit Wire.
Other things of interest:
Peter Dickinson is interviewed at Scribble City Central, as part of an ongoing "mythic Friday" series there.
There's a post full of mythical beast goodness over at the Enchanted Inkpot.
And for all of us who are really really curious to see what multicultural fantasies for kids and teens Tu Publishing will bring us, here's what Stacy Whitman is seeing in the submissions pile thus far...and what she hope to see.
