Thanks for joining us for World Wednesday. If you have a post about a middle grade book set in another part of the world or with great multicultural characters, please tell us about it in the comments. Here are some titles I found this past week:

I feel like I must be missing a lot, and I didn't necessarily put all the lower than middle grade books on the list. Well, this is why I started a "global literature" list (I learned at a meeting that we aren't supposed to call it multicultural because...well, I forget why). Sometimes, it's hard to find middle grade stuff!
