Anorak Magazine

Volume 57 / Fruit & Veg

Anorak is the Happy Mags for Kids. Aimed at children aged 6+, it contains beautifully illustrated stories, activities and themes, all designed to spark imagination and foster creativity. Anorak explores themes based on the National Curriculum such as Art, Our World, Under the Sea and Learning, or more philosophical themes such as Kindness or Friendships and fun themes such as Cakes! Unlike magazines of today, Anorak is not a throw away title. Just like much loved children’s magazines and annuals of the past it is designed to be collected, kept, handed down and revisited. “Anorak is what would happen if Monty Python, Ralph Steadman and René Magritte decided to make a magazine for children.It's anarchic, fun, laugh-out-loud strange and readable for kids of all ages.” —Huffington Post.

DRESS-LIKE-A-GIANT DAY What’s Dress-Like-A-Giant Day? A day we get to feel like giants by asking grown-ups around us if we can borrow and wear their clothes. NIGHT-TIME BREAKFAST Why would cereal and toast be only served early in the mornings? Time to change the rules and have a breakfast feast at night-time! RED ALERT Have you noticed that when you think of a colour, you then see it everywhere? Try this experiment by picking the colour red and list or draw all the red things around you. You’ll see lots! STORY TIME Reading is fun. Reading to others is even more fun because we get to practise different voices. Offer to read a story to anyone (or your teddies) in the evenings for some peaceful storytime! LET THE DICE DECIDE! What could you do today? Let the dice decide! Write…

words are fun!

FARTLEK It means… Running at different paces. Example Josh had been readying himself for the forthcoming Anorak Marathon by doing some fartlek training, which consisted of running at super speed for 10 minutes and then slowing down for 20. ZEPHYR It means… A breeze. Example Josh was happy about the race ahead: especially that the sun wasn’t so strong now and that a gentle zephyr had appeared. TO XERTZ It means… To drink quickly. Example Josh was exhausted. He had run for over an hour! As soon as he crossed the finishing line, he had to xertz two bottles of water and two smoothies. AGOG It means… Surprised, astonished. Example Josh’s sister, Lara, was agog at his record-breaking race. 20 kilometres in one hour is more than her pet cheetah had managed to do! HARUM-SCARUM It means… Reckless. Example Josh couldn’t help but let Lara know that she was harum-scarum to bring her pet…

Willow's friend, Raven offers to look after her. They both find the nest of the Wild Things and they start an adventure. Willow makes a wish and eventually her brother is well again.

The way Harriet Muncaster has written the book makes you imagine what could happen…
