At ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have a review of A COMB OF WISHES by Lisa Stringfellow.

Natalie Aguirre at Literary Rambles and I are on the same wave length this week. Instead of a review she gives us an interview with debut author Lisa Stringfellow and a giveaway of her MG fantasy A Comb of Wishes.

Author June McCrary Jacobs has a ‘double-feature’ with two brand new titles from New Growth Press. ‘Chloe and the Closet of Secrets’ and ‘Sam and the Sticky Situation’—both part of the publisher’s new ‘Teaching Children to Use Their Words Wisely’ series. June spotlights each book and has a review.

Carol Baldwin found a gem, a new 8th grade reviewer, Elliott Kurta, who shares his view on UNDER THE TANGERINE TREE by debut author Esther Bandy. But wait there’s more…

Carol’s young reviewer also interviews the author of UNDER THE TANGERINE TREE, Esther Brandy. Included is Carol’s GIVEAWAY opportunity for the book.

Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal returns this week with a review of Welcome Back, Maple Mehta-Cohen by Kate McGovern, about a girl who learns differently.

Jennifer Bohnhoff  shares a couple of special offers on her Valentine’s themed book, plus a review of From the Desk of Zoe Washington.

Valinora Troy has a review of The HIDEAWAY by Pam Smy. Check out her adorable friend next to a copy of the book

Maria Antonia shares a post about THE ELEPHANT THIEF by Jane Kerr.

Rosi Hollinbeck has a review and GIVEAWAY of INSIGNIFICANT EVENTS IN THE LIFE OF A CACTUS by Dusti Bowling. Rosi also has three links for her writing friends.

Karen Yingling at Mrs. Yingling Reads always has a fantastic MMGM book to share. Be sure to take a look along with her other reviews last week including last Friday’s Roosevelt Banks and the Attic of Doom.

(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)
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)

    What a great line up! I forgot to mail you my link but I’m back to reviewing books on my blog after a break. Today I’m featuring OUT OF MY HEART by Sharon Draper.
