First launched in 2006 by a Mum frustrated by the lack of good kids magazines available on the market, Anorak – the Happy Mag for Kids – is aimed at children (boys AND girls) aged 6+ and is sold worldwide on the newsstand, in kids boutiques, museum shops and bookshops.

Published four times a year, every issue has a theme (inspired by the British National Curriculum) to inspire and encourage kids to tap into their natural creativity and learn while having fun. Every edition has plenty of beautifully illustrated stories, games and activities to keep your little ones’ creative cells buzzing!

I picked up this particular issue in my local book shop Ottie & the Bea. I had been eyeing up their website for a while and was eager to get a copy.

To my delight I found two illustrators who have illustrated magpies for me. The excellent Ben Javens and the very magpies that Rachael Saunders sent me.
