#RRSciFiMonth: Lesser Known Kid's Sci-Fi

  • Saturday, November 29, 2014

Do you have a middle-grade kid? Come on, why should we have all the sci-fi fun? Here's a kid's sci-fi three, from some lesser-known authors ... from me to you :)

Although this is Book 2, I found I could read this easily and not feel lost. This is Star Wars gone uber cute -- this incorporates elements of sci-fi (intergalactic travel, computers, modes of transport, hints of genetic engineering), spice names and home cooking (cardamom, caramel) and also the traditional stuff of childhood (elves, kings and queens, crushes, do you dance the krump?) that will definitely appeal. I urge you to look at this entire series. 

Frankie Dupont and the Mystery of Enderby Manor by Julie Anne Grasso
Time warps and alternate times, this c cute, unpredicable and fantastical mystery at an old manor, solved by the dashing Frankie Dupont, promises to be a mystery series that middle-grade readers will love.

Captain Disaster by Del Shannon
A smart, well-written sci-fi adventure that your middle-grader will love! Captain Disaster will capture your imagination with fast-paced, even exhausting, action ... and get you talking with your child about the value of family.
