Each Fall I look forward to cooler temperatures and my reading for The Cybils. Book nominations opened on Saturday and already I'm busy making library holds. This year I'm once again a first-round panelist in Elementary/Middle-Grade Speculative Fiction.
Here's the category description from the wonderful chair Charlotte Taylor, " Along with the expected spells and space rockets and aliens, this is the category for books with talking animals, time-travel, ghosts, and paranormal abilities, and all the other books that might not have obvious magic on every page, and which are set here on Earth, but which push past the boundaries of daily life into what is almost certainly impossible."
So if you know of books that have great kid appeal, for that Elementary/Middle-Grade reader between the ages of eight to twelve, published in the U.S. or Canada between Oct 16, 2015, and Oct 15th, 2016 , please nominate here.
Oh, and here are a few suggestions of books that I've read, ones that I would really like to, or one's that just haven't been nominated yet either.
