Kirkus has announced its lists of best books for children and teens!
Here are the children's fantasy and science fiction books (Kirkus seems to be defining sff rather broadly....). It's a very nice group of books indeed, and if you click on the links, you can read their Kirkus reviews. (This looks reasonably formated on my computer, but knowing blogger, it might not be on yours. Sorry).
