The shortlists for the Cybils Awards have been announced, and here are the seven Elementary/Middle grade speculative fiction books the first round panelists picked!  (if you think the Cybils sound fun, look for the call for panelists next August and join us!)


  1. So glad my review of Zetta Elliot's Dragons in a Bag made it to the roundup! And, happy it led me to your really cool blog. I'm judging the Cybils this year too - round one for early chapter/easy reader!

    1. Glad I found your review! I hope you enjoyed your Cybils experience!
