This week's round-up of middle grade sci fi and fantasy from around the blogs (8/27/17)

Welcome to this week's round-up!  Let me know if I missed your post.

First--the 2017 Cybils Awards are seeking judges!  I hope lots of you apply; it is really fun.  I'm the category organizer for Elementary/Middle Grade Speculative Fiction, so feel free to ask me if you have any questions.  I love the veterans who have worked with me in MG Spec Fic in the past (and the fact that they are still eager to be part of it shows they had a good time!), but it would be great to have new folks join in!  Here's a post I wrote a while back with more info. about what you can expect.

  1. The cat sitting guide is really cute and nice artwork. "You'll have to keep your wits about you to survive this harrowing experience," such fun.
