More Links on a Monday

A few interesting articles came to my attention past the weekend deadline. Also, there are some noteworthy changes in the kidslitosphere. Here's what's going on:

First "major media 'review'" (called a snap judgment) of Breaking Dawn at the Los Angeles Times. I haven't read any of the Twilight books for a number of reasons, so I can't comment on the review.

Matthew Thornton has an interesting piece on "shared translation" in Publishers Weekly.

The Publishers Weekly children's book reviews are up and online.

Think issue books (marijuana, plastic surgery, anti-drug) are only big in the U.S.? Then check out this article from The Local: Sweden's News in English.

Anastasia Suen's new Scholastic blog--Kid Lit Kit--is now live

Do you have a children's book or writing blog? Then consider joining the Kidlitosphere Circle set up by Melissa Wiley. (I have mine in the right side bar. Just scroll down and you'll find it.)
