The November Carnival of Children's Literature is up at Wendy Wax's blog. I've heard that the blog illustration is Wendy's original artwork created specifically for this month's carnival.
One of my favorite carnival stops: Alex Bough's The Children's War, a blog/journal "about books written for children and young adults about World War II." I found this interesting because one of the Gauthier boys was into reading children's books set in World War II during his late elementary/early middle school years. Bough's Carnival post deals with a Cherry Ames novel.
