I was lucky enough to be part of the Elementary/Middle Grade Speculative Fiction Second Round for the Cybils this year. Our winning title was Lockwood & Co: The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud. It's a delightfully fun-and sometimes chilling-read that I'm sure middle grade readers who love ghost stories, mysteries and adventure will enjoy.
The Audies are an award for audiobooks and I've never been disappointed by any of the titles chosen on the list. There are so many categories to choose from. The shortlists were recently announced and they are full of wonderful titles to listen to!
