Kidlitosphere Round-up

I’m about to run out to a birthday party, but here are a few posts that I am loving today!

  • Over at Wizards Wireless you can read a great review of Gary D. Schmidt’s new novel, Trouble. Gary wrote one of my favorite novels last year- the incomparable The Wednesday Wars. I am scouring the kidlitosphere for an ARC of Trouble. In the meantime, Susan’s review will have to hold me over.
  • Stacey and Ruth of Two Writing Teachers have a new look for their blog.  The makeover is wonderful and they really run a phenomenal blog.
  • Last, but not least, The Class of 2k8 is running a contest where entrants can win a 3-pack of books.  The contest is an internet scavenger hunt and I can’t wait to participate.  The books that you can win also sound great!  Plus, The Class of 2k8 website is a great way to hear about new books from first-time authors this year.

Hopefully, these will tide you over for a bit while I enjoy a night out.  🙂
