This Sunday's round up of fantasy and science fiction for kids!

It is a beautiful day here in southern New England, made all the more beautiful by the fact that I no longer have to worry about my son's birthday party (phew). He got $50 worth of bookstore gift certificates, and I am hoping he will see fit to buy his mama a book by way of a thank you...or at least cookie in the cafe.

But anyway. Here are the links to posts about "middle grade" fantasy and science fiction from yet another week of assiduous blog reading! Please let me know if I missed yours, please feel free to let your own blog readers know I do this every Sunday, and happy reading!
