229006Karen Yingling at Ms. Yingling Reads always has a great MMGM review. Check it out along with Sunday’s feature on Fifty-Four Things Wrong With Gwendolyn Rogers

A final note: Newbery Award winning author, Gary Paulsen, passed away last week. We’ll always have his books to celebrate a legacy. Thanks to SCBWI for sharing this video…

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.

  1. Thanks for sharing the Paulsen interview. I was there at the SCBWI conference in LA in 2011 and heard him. But, nice to listen to the video. He was a great children’s author! His background was his training ground as an author!

  2. Thanks for the Paulsen video. I will try to get to it this week. And thanks for always keeping up with MMGM. It’s a big task.
