This Sunday's Round-Up of Middle Grade Fantasy and Sci fi postings from around the blogs

Welcome to another week's worth of postings from around the blogging world about middle grade (ages 9-12) fantasy and science fiction books (well, one sci fi book). Please let me know if I missed your post!

The Interviews:

Frank L. Cole (The Guardians of the Hidden Scepter) at Manga Maniac Cafe and The Elliott Review

Grace Lin (Where the Mountains Meet the Moon) at Manga Maniac Cafe

Other Good Stuff:

It's Fairy Tale Fortnight, hosted by Book Rat (where you will find the schedule of interviews, reviews, and giveaways).

Marie Rutkoski is giving away three arcs of The Jewel of the Kalderash

And I am giving away the winner's choice of either A Stranger to Command, or A Posse of Princesses, both by Sherwood Smith (the later is a great older mg girl book!)

Finally, fun with Easter Candy Science:

Found via io9-- watch Cadbury Creme eggs scream in the name of science here at Periodic Videos (we especially liked the last video link, where the egg bursts into flame). If you want to interest your child in chemistry, this is the video for you!

And for more Easter Candy Fun, why not give Peep Jousting a try? (warning--this will make your microwave very sticky). In the name of science, Smithsonian.com offers an experiment testing whether fresh or stale peeps are more successful jousters...
