Welcome Project Mayhemmers! I Heart Middle Grade Historical. How'z About You?

I'm not the only one. Head over to my writing pal, Michael Gettel-Gilmartin  and check out all these fabulous middle grade novels. Click on over now. Read mine. Purty please.

Happy Guy Fawkes Day tomorrow. What is that, you ask? 

Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot...

What are YOUR favorite MG historicals? Do tell! 



  1. Will head over! Hmm, fave MG historicals...does the Witch of Blackbird Pond count? I know there are several others but their names escape me now. One old favorite is The Island of the Blue Dolphin, but not sure if that is technically a historical. It's been a long time since I read it!

    I also love Cathy Gohlke's William Henry is a Fine Name and I Have Seen Him in the Watchfires, but they are more YA.

    Have a wonderful weekend, amigo!
    Big hugs,

  2. You did a fantastic job, Robyn. Thanks so much for giving of your time. ♥s all round, and have a fantastic weekend!!

  3. Oh! I love MG historicals! Wrote one myself. Heading over now...

  4. My very favorite is TO BE A SLAVE by Julius Lester. :-)

  5. Ha! It IS Guy Fawkes Day, LOL!

    Gosh, I need to read more middle grade--thanks for the link!

  6. I'm a novice when it comes to MG historicals but as I live in the U.K. I know all about Guy Fawkes Day.
    I'm looking forward to the bonfires and fireworks tomorrow night and I hope you have a great weekend.

  7. Will check out the link...MG is my favourite. Have a great weekend.

  8. I recently read Dragon by Julie Andrwes and Emma Walton Hamilton - medieval, and loved it! Haven't celebrated Guy Fawks in so long, been out of the UK too long!

  9. I remember my last Guy Fawkes night when I lived in England. We had a big bonfire. We burnt our guy (yikes that sounds rather scary). We did sparklers and I dipped mine in the water too cool it and then like a silly little girl took it back out of the water and grabbed the top to see if it was cool. It wasn't! I had a nasty burn in the palm of my hand. We had an awesome Guy Fawkes Day cake to finish the evening off. :)

  10. I love Avi's "True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle." I'll head over to the site and check it out. Thanks, Robyn!


Leave me a note! :)
