hey tgs!

So many things can happen in seven years. Like: Harry Potter can complete his entire magical education AND defeat the most evil wizard who ever lived. You can go from tiny baby to person who likes reading Total Girl. In seven years, I bet you could develop all new skills at something you really want to learn to do: ice cream-making, ballet, electric guitar-playing, coding. Seven years is also the entire span of my time at TG mag. It’s true. The time has come to say goodbye to you, the TGs who are my readers. (I’m saying ‘my’ and not ‘our’ because the mag will go on, just without me). I want to say a million thank yous to all of you. Your letters and art and your messages made…

Hello TG, My name is Charlie; I am 10 years old and have a pet Boxer called Buckley who loves strawberries (as a treat, they’re good for dogs). I also like to call Buckley ‘Chub Chub’ because he is a bit chubby under his chin. Love, Charlie Hello Charlie, And a big helloooo to Buckley! What an adorable photo. We love strawberries too; we think they make a great snack, hehe. Please give Buckley lots of belly rubs for us. Love, Team TG x Dear Total Girl, My name is Pyper and I am 12 years old. I live in a country town. I’m an animal person so having wild animals and seeing kangaroos jump about is super exciting for me. I have three brothers. Wow! Such a hard job having brothers, isn’t it?! I absolutely adore…

Saahhh dodgy We were playing dodgeball in sport and I was trying to get away from the ball when I slipped in gooey mud! I was covered in mud from head to toe and had to borrow spare clothes from the office that of course didn’t fit. When I got back, someone hit me in the face with a ball! Zoe Got an embarro story to share? Email totalgirl@nextmedia.com.au with the subject line‘Totally Embarrasing’. Sand for help! I was at the beach with my family, some friends and my dog. My dog was pulling really hard on the leash as I was walking on top of the sand dunes. Suddenly, my foot slipped and I fell face-forward into the sand! Then my dog dragged me across the beach with my face in the sand. When…

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, let’s take a moment to appreciate how good the voice cast is in this new flick. Firstly, you have Tom Holland a.k.a Spider-Man. He was hilarious as goofy inventor Walter in Spies In Disguise, not to mention his role as Jip the dog in Dolittle. Solid start, right? Secondly, you have Chris Pratt, hero of The LEGO Movie and its sequel. Combine the two and you just know there’s going to be some movie magic! More on the story: in a land where the old magical ways have been cast aside for technology not dissimilar to our own, two elf brothers Ian (that would be Tom!) and Barley (yep, it’s Chris) set off on a quest to discover a father they never knew.
