This Sunday's round-up of middle grade fantasy and science fiction

Welcome to another gathering of all the blogs posts I found this week about middle grade science fiction and fantasy! If I missed your post, let me know, and if you'd like to link to this review, I'd really appreciate it (I'd really like it to be more widely known)
