MMGM for April 1, 2019


No fools here on on this fun-filled edition of MMGM—just links to great reviews and features. I share a few thoughts on Mr. Penguin and The Lost Treasure by Alex T. Smith. Click the smiley to reach my post and do the same for everyone else below.
June McCrary Jacobs at ‘Reading, Writing, & Stitch-Metic’ has a fun historical fiction MG picture book, ‘Papa’s Mechanical Fish’, by Candace Fleming.
Sue Heavenrich at Sally’s Bookshelf also has a fun MG read….Garbage Island, written & illustrated by Fred Koehler.
Maria Antonia at Of Books, Photography, and Tea has some mini-reviews for a Middle-Grade reading bingo challenge. No foolin’!
Suzanne Warr at Tales from the Raven spotlights The Tail of Emily Windsnap, by Liz Kessler, and comes with a non-book-related but timely personal announcement that connects to the book.
Completely Full Bookshelf recommends Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend. Monday is also the last day to enter the Spring Signed Book Giveaway!
Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal reviews The Lost Girl by Anne Ursu about identical twins who are separated at school.  
Beth Mitchell at Imaginary Friends has a review of The Not-So-Boring Letters of Private Nobody by Matthew Landis.
Dorine White at The Write Path has a spotlight and Giveaway of the Hello There! Trilogy by Laurie B. Arnold.
Alex Baugh at Randomly Reading is back with another fine review. Today she features Where the Heart Is by Jo Knowles.
Rosi Hollinbeck reviews HEARTWOOD HOTEL: HOME AGAIN by Kallie George Rosi also has some not to be missed links for her writing friends.
Janet Smart at Creative Writing in the Blackberry Patch is featuring The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg by Rodman Philbrick.
Michael Gettel-Gilmartin, The Middle Grade Mafioso, is featuring Mike Lupica’s NO SLAM DUNK.
Karen Yingling at Ms. Yingling Reads has another informative MMGM post. Be sure to check out today’s feature and all of her reviews the past week including The True History of Lyndie B. Hawkins.
If you would like to join in the MMGM fun and get your own spot in the parade, all you have to do is blog about a middle grade book you love on a Monday (contests, author interviews and whatnot also count–but are most definitely not required) and email me the title of the book you’re featuring and a link to your blog at gpcolo (at) gmail (dot) com
(Make sure you put MMGM or Marvelous Middle Grade Monday in the subject line so it gets sorted accurately–and please don’t forget to say what book you’re featuring)
You MUST email me your link by Sunday evening (11 PM Eastern Time) in order to be included in the list of links for the coming Monday.
Thanks for spreading the middle grade love and for being a part of this awesome tradition begun by Shannon Messenger and carried on here at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE! (CLICK HERE FOR PAST MMGM POSTS)
*Please note: these posts are not a reflection of my own opinions on the books featured. Each blogger is responsible for their own MMGM content and I do not pre-screen reviews ahead of time, nor do I control what books they choose. I simply assemble the list based on the links that are emailed to me.
