The Book Smugglers have a weekly feature, Old School Wednesdays, when they look at titles that aren’t “new and shiny”.
This past Wednesday, they did a middle grade blogger roundtable and I was one of the participants.
One of the fun things about a roundtable like this is, of course, seeing what titles that people select. Another is how each blogger interprets it a bit differently. And how no titles overlap!
A Proud Taste for Scarlet and Miniver by E. L. Konigsburg
The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper
Master Skylark by John Bennett
It’s Not the End of the World by Judy Blume
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle
Why these five? And what did the others select? You’ll have to go over to The Book Smugglers to find out.
