In honor of Halloween tomorrow, here’s a review of a spooky spec fic nominee for the Elementary/Middle Grade SF category. Lockwood & Co., Book Five: The Empty Grave, by Jonathan Stroud, is the latest installment in the series, and is sure to please fans of the Lockwood books. Our Middle Grade Fiction category chair, middle school librarian Karen Yingling, reviewed the book earlier this month on her blog Ms. Yingling Reads:
I adored this so much that I spent five days reading it! I didn’t want to finish it too quickly! The information we receive about the Skull is fascinating, and its relationship with Lucy is the best part of the book.
