This week's round-up of middle grade fantasy and science fiction from around the blogs (4/21/19)

Happy Easter, those who are celebrating!  I was very tickled to find a steampunk Victorian card for today.

Here are the posts I found this week for us fans of mg sci fi and fantasy, and it was a slightly disappointing haul, and I wish that either there were more folks reviewing mg sff, or that I knew who I was missing! I follow lots of blogs in bloglovin, and also search for posts via google.  This week I also searched for specific new titles.  And still I didn't find many reviews.  So please, if you review mg sff, leave a comment so I can find your blog/Instagram/youtube channel etc!
