Request: SF Titles for the Under 12s

Lady Rona has a request: science fiction for under 12s that is not speculative fiction (such as Among the Hidden) and not fantasy.

For the life of me, I'm having trouble thinking of recent titles; all I could come up with are things from when I was an under 12, or things that are firmly YA (such as Double Helix).

Any suggestions?

My problem here is that I started off with adult SF when I was ten, and I'm not really sure what books are suitable for what grades when talking about normal readers....

- the Spaceship Under the Apple Tree series (Slobodkin, I think)
- the Star Ka'at books (Andre Norton)
- Rusty's Space Ship (Evelyn Sibley Lampman)
all ought to be suitable, if they can be found in (or ILL'd from) libraries.

Hey Liz, thanks for spreading the word on this one! Yup, I'm looking for recent titles especially.
